COVID-19 Impact on Plastic Optical Fiber Market

  • The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted a large number of countries across the globe. Various measures introduced to deal with the pandemic such as lockdowns, decrease in trade activities, and closure of various factories and workplaces in several countries could save lives; however, these measures carry wide-ranging economic effects, which can induce an economic contagion.
  • Shortage of supply of raw materials from various manufacturers of plastic optical fibers around the globe has resulted in a severe demand-supply gap. Manufacturers are further expected to be stranded on raw material orders owing to the logistics industry being significantly impacted due to lockdowns amid COVID-19.
  • Shutdown in various countries across the globe has prohibited import of various components including additives and raw materials required for improving performance. This is likely to hamper various application industries.
