COVID-19 has severely affected various industries, and the polyolefin foam market is no exception. Polyolefins foam market has been witnessing huge disruption in the whole supply chain as suppliers, vendors, producers, and consumers are severely affected by the pandemic. Some of the production of the polyolefin plants were completely closed or partially operated during the crisis.
