Global IV dressings Market– Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic

The coronavirus, or COVID-19, outbreak started in Wuhan, China, in 2019 and has spread across the world, affecting various industries such as automation, healthcare, and others globally. The economies of various countries, such as India, Italy, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, the U.K., the U.S., Morocco, and others, were disrupted due to lockdowns implemented by governments to combat the spread of coronavirus since 2020. Lockdowns or shutdowns were imposed in many countries in Europe that negatively impacted the economy of the region’s private healthcare sector.

These lockdowns resulted in the closure of industrial establishments, except for those manufacturing essential commodities, and disruptions in the supply chain of products such as wound care products. Thus, the COVID-19 pandemic hampered the economy by directly affecting the production and demand of advanced wound care products, by creating disruptions in distribution channels, and by having a financial impact on firms and financial markets. Supply chain and manufacturing activities in Europe and other regions were disrupted due to lockdowns. Countries, such as Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Ireland, Denmark, and others, faced problems with the transportation of raw materials.

Furthermore, according to Wounds International, also known as the International Wound Infection Institute (IWII), in 2021, the use of telemedicine increased during the pandemic in order to enable communication between healthcare providers and patients and their caretakers through video-calling and sharing photographs of wounds.
