Restrictions on Manufacturing to Hamper Industry Progress

This market is expected to be negatively affected during the COVID-19 pandemic due to restrictions on manufacturing. The alarming spike in COVID-19 patients led to the imposition of stringent lockdown norms. This factor is expected to disrupt supply chains globally. Moreover, transport restrictions may lead to shortages in raw materials, thereby impeding the adoption of space launch services. Furthermore, the global semiconductor shortage may disrupt spacecraft production, which, in turn, affects the overall industry. However, the resumption of activities may enable companies to resume production and elevate their market position.
