Impact of COVID-19

The pandemic has put several restraints on the global economy and brought international trade to a standstill. International borders have been sealed, and various economies have announced nationwide curfews and lockdowns. These scenarios have led to large scale migration of laborers. The human workforce is among the critical components of the industrial and construction sectors. Thus, the lack of a skilled workforce and lockdowns have brought manufacturing activities to a halt.

Key industry players are adopting strategies such as vertical integration to gain control of the supply chain and attain a deeper understanding of the domestic markets. Apart from this, plummeting demand for the construction industry and volatility in the oil and gas hampers market growth.
