COVID-19 analysis:

COVID-19 has severely impacted the global economy with devastating effects on global trade, which has simultaneously affected households, business, financial institution, industrial establishments and infrastructure companies. The novel coronavirus has affected several economies ad caused lockdown in many countries which has limited the growth of the market. The shutdown of industrial manufacturer led to the decline in the demand for solar related equipment in most of the countries across the world led to decline in the demand of the electric capacitor market. The decrease in utilization of power in the industrial facilities across the globe during the outbreak has a negative impact on the development of the market.

The outbreak of COVID-19 in China and its spread across numerous countries around the world halted the manufacturing activities of industrial sectors which correspondingly hampered high voltage capacitor manufacturing as well. The raw material procurement was also challenged owing to outbreak of COVID-19.  The revenue streams of government of numerous countries were halted which correspondingly hindered the government funded transmission and distribution projects. This consequently decreased the demand for high voltage capacitors. As economies of numerous countries are recovering, the government funded transmission and distribution projects resumed operations. The above mentioned factors will increase the demand for high voltage capacitor. The growth trend is expected to continue during the forecast period.
