COVID-19 Impact on Carbon Nanotubes Market
The recent outbreak of coronavirus had a negative impact on the carbon nanotubes market. The pandemic has had a severe impact on the world economy, resulting in a reduction in global GDP and a shift in consumer purchasing patterns. Due to a reduction in labor and limits on manufacturing operations, the worldwide automotive supply chain was disrupted, resulting in a shortage of essential automotive components. Furthermore, during the predicted period, uncertainty about economic conditions led to a drop in consumer confidence, hurting consumer spending. Vehicle sales are likely to fall during the projection period as a result of this. The global demand for electronic goods is following a similar pattern, affecting the semiconductor sector. The commissioning of new renewable electricity projects, wind mills and tidal energy farms, biofuel facilities, and renewable heat investments may be delayed due to financial volatility in leading economies. Furthermore, the renewable energy sector in most countries is heavily reliant on imports, particularly from China. Due to COVID-19, China, the pandemic's known source, has been the hardest hit in terms of material supply and transportation. During the projected period, the aforementioned factors are expected to have an impact on the global carbon nanotubes market growth.
