Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Manhole Covers Market

Before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the manhole covers market was mainly driven by their increasing use in residential and non-residential construction activities. However, the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic hampered the growth of the chemicals & materials sector, thus hindering the growth of the manhole covers market. The implementation of measures to combat the spread of SARS-CoV-2 negatively impacted the growth of various industries. Builders experienced delays and increased costs for imported raw materials and off-site building materials due to the long-term shutdown of many factories. The damage caused by the impacts of the pandemic on the building & construction industry hampered the demand for manhole covers.

The global marketplace is recovering from the losses caused due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as governments of different countries have announced relaxation in the restrictions. Manufacturers are permitted to operate at full capacity, which helps them to overcome the supply gap. This is expected to create a positive impact on the manhole covers market growth.
