Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Border Security Market
The outbreak of the COVID-19 has severely impacted the defense, aerospace, aviation and other related industries. The emergence of COVID-19 virus across the globe which led to lockdown scenarios has led to unprecedented series of border closures across the globe. This disruption is expected to leave an impact on the defense industry through till mid-2021. With the rising concern of health of the general public, governments across nations are focused on investments on healthcare and related industries and there has been a shift of budget allocation from defense to healthcare. However, the pandemic has proved that careful coordination is required between all border agencies to ensure effective security measures. Moreover, demand for defense related products such as border security systems will remain unaffected as the budgets for defense related projects had been allocated prior to the pandemic and the projects are extremely critical to national defense.
