Covid-19 Impact Analysis

The industrial control market has been significantly impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak as production facilities of electronics and semiconductor industries have been shut down, owing to slowdown and unavailability of workforce across the globe. COVID-19 outbreak has caused a significant and protracted drop in manufacturing utilization. In addition, travel bans & facility closures kept workers out of their factories, which led to slowdown in growth of the industrial control market in 2020.

However, the negative impact of COVID-19 on the industrial controls industry is expected to stay for a short period and by early 2021 the market is anticipated to observe robust recovery rate along with extensive demand for installation of industrial control systems around the globe.
