COVID-19 Analysis:

The polycarbonate sheets market witnessed value chain disruption owing to spread of COVID-19 and lockdown in North America. COVID-19 pandemic has led to a decline in demand from myriad of end-use industries such as electrical & electronics, building & construction, automotive & transportation, and other industries, which negatively impacted the polycarbonate sheets market in North America. Further, with the shutdowns of a large part of the automotive industry, the polycarbonate sheets market in the region were negatively impacted during the pandemic. For instance, in America, the 2020 automotive production of about 15 million units represented a 20% share of the global production. The North American region witnessed production declining by over 20%, with U.S. production plunging by 19%. However, with the COVID-19 vaccination campaign across the region and as the economies are getting stable, there is growth in the demand from end-use industries, which in turn is anticipated to augment the demand for polycarbonate sheets in the region.
