COVID-19 Hindered the Foreign Direct Investments (FDI), International Trade, Production and Employment Rate Across Several Industries
The unprecedented global and regional shock triggered by COVID-19 would have been unimaginable less than a year ago. The pandemic's sudden emergence has resulted in an economic downturn that felt greater than the global financial crisis in 2008/2009.
The negative and immediate impact of the pandemic was seen on international trade, foreign direct investments (FDI), production, and employment across all the industrial sectors. Thus, it brought an abrupt and unplanned shutdown of the economic activities due to lockdown norms, social distancing practices, and pessimistic approach in the market. These factors led to the shutdown of manufacturing facilities and restrictions on the manufacturers while hampering the output efficiency of the mobile toilet in the global market scenario.
Additionally, the reduced liquidity cost in the market has forced the key players to limit their manufacturing operations and operate at a reduced capacity. Moreover, rising oil prices have also affected the logistics and transportation businesses, thus limiting the supply chain and value chain operations across the market. Supply chain disruption due to volatility of demand & supply and stringent restrictions on logistical operations have limited the global market operations.
The lockdown imposed state, country, and international border restricted the import-export trade, which subsequently augmented the problem of raw material procurement for manufacturing facilities. The procurement of raw materials, problems associated with inbound and outbound logistics, and disorder in the supply chain had a considerable impact on the market. From a long-term perspective, the market is observing strong growth attributed to the on-track construction & manufacturing facilities while augmenting demand for emergency shower & eyewash stations across the region.
