COVID-19 Impact Analysis
The outbreak of COVID-19 has significantly affected the electronics and semiconductor sector. Business and manufacturing units across various countries were closed, owing to increase in number of COVID-19 cases, and are expected to remain closed in 2021. Furthermore, partial or complete lockdown has disrupted global supply chain posing challenges for manufactures to reach customers.
The COVID-19 pandemic is impacting the society and overall economy across the globe. The impact of this outbreak is growing day-by-day as well as affecting the overall business globally. The crisis is creating uncertainty in the stock market and is resulting in falling business confidence, massive slowing of supply chain, and increasing panic among customers.
Asian and European countries under lockdowns have suffered major loss of business and revenue, owing to shutdown of manufacturing units. Operations of the production and manufacturing industries have been heavily impacted by the outbreak of the COVID-19 disease, which further impacted growth of the 3D metrology market.
In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the electronics sector as production facilities have stalled, which, in turn, boost demand for electronics and semiconductor products in these industries. Its major impact includes a large manufacturing interruption across Europe and interruption in Chinese parts exports, which hinder the market.
Asia-Pacific region would exhibit the highest CAGR of 10.5% during 2021 - 2030
