 COVID-19 Impact

The electronics supply chain was facing challenges before the outbreak due to the tariff war between the major manufacturers, the US and China. Moreover, as the coronavirus started spreading in early 2020, the manufacturers curtailed manufacturing output and travel. This led to the complete closure of factories for several weeks. Travel bans and facility closures kept workers out of their factories, and even when things started getting normal, factories were opened with half of their capacity. This all slowed the velocity of electronic manufacturing. However, the market is expected to boom back again in upcoming years.
