Medical Device Coating Market– Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic

Since the COVID-19 virus outbreak in December 2019, the disease has spread to over 100 countries across the globe, and the World Health Organization declared it a public health emergency on January 30, 2020.

COVID-19 affected the economy in three main ways: by directly affecting the production and demand of drugs, by creating disruptions in distribution channels, and through its financial impact on firms and financial markets. Due to nationwide lockdowns, several countries, such as China, India, Saudi Arabia, the U.A.E., Egypt, and others, are facing problems with the transportation of things from one place to another.

The COVID-19 pandemic had a negative impact on the global medical device coating market, as healthcare providers were facing challenges such as a lack of additional manpower, equipment, consumables, and other resources that are required to ensure safety in hospitals and to provide treatment to patients with other diseases. This negatively affected the overall healthcare market.

There was a delay in the supply of raw materials that are required to manufacture medical devices due to irregularities in the transportation system. Furthermore, due to the increasing number of patients suffering from COVID-19 and other life-threatening diseases, product distributors are seeing inconsistent demand for products from retailers.
