COVID-19 Impact:

Market Witnessed Major Decrease in Demand during COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 outbreak significantly impacted the global economy and various industries.

These restrictions caused manufacturers to shut down their factories and supply chain disruptions as borders were closed for travel and transportation, except for essential goods.
