COVID-19 Impact on the global Air Quality Monitoring System Market
Globally, the outbreak of COVID-19 has impacted every aspect of the industry, including air quality monitoring system market. From region to region there is considerable variation in the demand for air quality monitoring systems primarily due to considerable effect of pandemic on economy and purchasing power of buyers, and interruption in supply chain. The pandemic has disrupted lives across all countries and communities and negatively affected global economic growth in 2020.
Estimates indicate the virus reduced global economic growth in 2020 to an annualized rate of -3.4% to -7.6%, with a recovery of 4.2% to 5.6% projected for 2021. Global trade is also estimated to have fallen by 5.3% in 2020. In addition to this, COVID-19 had adverse impact on various stages of value chain, primarily due to strict lockdown imposed by government in most of the countries. Many companies had to temporarily halt down their manufacturing facilities for some time as well. Similarly, supply and distribution network also got interrupted, majorly due to restriction in travelling due to lockdown, and decline in sales activity.
Due to the negative impact of the pandemic, leading players in the air quality monitoring system market, such as Thermo Fisher (US), Emerson (US), and Siemens AG (Germany), registered a significant decline in sales for FY2020. However, with markets opening up, and government slowly uplifting lockdown restrictions, the economy is expected to boom up again. To grab the future opportunities, most of the companies are spending more and more on research and development, and product innovation.
