Impact of COVID-19:

The shutdown of Manufacturing Plants and Raw Material Shortage to Impede Market Progress

This market is expected to be negatively affected during the COVID-19 because of the restrictions placed on production activities. The sudden spike in COVID-19 infections has led to the closure of industries and manufacturing firms. Further, restrictions placed on transport have led to the shortage of raw materials required for the production of advanced welding equipment. However, the adoption of reduced capacities, part-time shifts, and production machinery may enable manufacturers to recover costs. These factors are likely to fuel the growth of the industry during the pandemic.
