Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Iron Powder Market

The COVID-19 pandemic has adversely altered the status of the chemicals & materials sector and negatively affected the iron powder market growth. The implementation of measures to combat the spread of SARS-CoV-2 aggravated the situation and declined the growth of various industries. As a result, there was a sudden distortion in operational efficiencies and disruptions in the value chains; many industries faced several challenges owing to the shutdown of national and international boundaries. The COVID-19 pandemic has restrained the import and export of iron powder in different countries, hampering the iron powder market growth. The shortage of iron powder due to the COVID-19 pandemic increased its prices rapidly across the world. However, several companies operating in the manufacturing industries revived their businesses owing to the ease of restrictions. Hence, the demand for iron powder is rising across the world, especially among the paints & coatings, additive manufacturing, medical, and metallurgy industries.
