Global Silicone Polymer Market - Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic

  • Several countries across the globe resorted to lockdowns to flatten the curve of the infection. The lockdowns have resulted in shutting of businesses and ceasing of almost all economic activities. The virus impacted major producers of silicone polymer, and the entire ecosystem of silicone polymer including raw materials suppliers, formulators, distributors, and retailers. The virus outbreak in China and the gradual spread across the globe has upset the supply chains across the globe. The shortages in silicone polymer had severe impact on planting, crop development, and harvest later this year, which can lead to food crisis. According to Coherent Market Insights’ analysis, the gap in the demand-supply will lead to irrational prices for silicone polymer.
