Rex Pascual, editor at Trading Platforms, commented:

“As lockdowns forced offices to shut, people’s homes became their workspaces which spiked demand for consumer electronics and peripherals. With many large companies shifting to a hybrid work model even in a post-pandemic world, expect Logitech to continue its strong momentum in the ‘new-normal.’”
