Conductive Silicone Market Challenges
Disruption in supply chain can restrict the growth of the Conductive Silicone Market
Due to the tightening of Chinese environmental norms some feedstock facilities were forced to shut down to meet air quality regulation leading in supply shortage. The major challenge is to deal with the short supply without hampering the environment. The demand for the products is increasing but due to the closing of the facilities it is making a disbalance between the demand and supply and causing a disruption in easy supply chain leading to restricted growth in conductive silicone market.
The emergence of COVID-19 pandemic
The emergence of COVID-19, which is declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization, is having a noticeable impact on global economic growth. According to International Monetary Fund, the global GDP is expected to decline by 3% in 2020. According to World Trade Organization (WTO), global trade volumes are projected to decline between 13% and 32% in 2020 as a result of the economic impact of COVID-19. Currently, the conductive silicone market has been affected due to COVID-19 pandemic where most of the industrial activity has been temporarily shut down. In turn has affected the demand and supply chain as well which has been restricting the growth in year 2020.
