COVID-19 Impact: Reinvestment Strategies by Key Players and Government to Drive Market in Pandemic  

The Coronavirus pandemic has been affecting sectors and exhorting economic disruptions across the world. With the temporary closure of manufacturing facilities, industrial plants, factories, and other industries worldwide, the unemployment rate has increased in the countries. The economic sectors rely on industry and manufacturing, as most business models are built and depend on manufacturing. These outburst effects of COVID-19 are leading countries as well as the global economy towards recession. As the pandemic continues to pester, it will pose an unprecedented challenge for both back-end technologies and front-end applications.

The adverse impact of Coronavirus has also affected industrial cybersecurity spending among the industries around the globe. The key players are focused on completing pending investment and business strategies to recapture positioning in the industrial cybersecurity market. For instance, in May 2020, Rockwell Automation, Inc., completed the acquisition of Kalypso, LP., a software delivery and consulting organization. The aim was to provide control products and solutions based on Kalypso’s capabilities to develop security solutions on critical resources.

According to IDC, worldwide IT spending is expected to decline by 2.7% due to COVID-19. Moreover, the expenditure on infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and cloud computing tools is projected to increase in the near future. These investments would assist in creating various growth opportunities and demand for industrial cybersecurity in industrial applications.
