Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Forklift Battery Market

The COVID-19 pandemic has been affecting every business globally since December 2019. The continuous growth in the number of virus-infected patients compelled governments to put a bar on transportation of humans and goods. The manufacturing sector witnessed severe losses due to temporary factory shutdowns and low production volumes, which hindered the growth of retail, e-commerce, manufacturing, and logistics sectors. Additionally, the social or physical distancing measures imposed by governments have put limitations on the operations of logistics and other service providers. This disruption has resulted in the decline in material handling work.

The pandemic has had a negative impact on the forklift batter market. Due to closure of major manufacturing industries supply chains, hence, goods handling work at plant and warehouses got impacted adversely and subsequently it also affected the market. On the contrary, due to the operational activities of essential goods such as food & beverage, pharmaceuticals and healthcare equipment, the demand for material stacking and inter-logistics handling work have spurred which has helped in the adoption of forklift trucks. This has led the forklift battery market players to witness the constant flow of demand for their products. Despite the disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the business of mentioned sectors is likely to surge in the future as business are getting resumed after a long lockdown measure.
