Did COVID-19 Slow Down Sales of Tungsten Carbide Powder?
The unprecedented outbreak of coronavirus infections in 2020 resulted in a global pandemic situation and caused multiple markets to topple under adverse conditions. Lockdowns were imposed to control the spread of infections and these lockdown restrictions resulted in the closure of multiple manufacturing facilities which in turn disrupted the tungsten carbide market.
A decline in construction activity resulted in the low usage of tungsten carbide powder in the construction industry, and hence, had a negative impact on the overall growth trend of the market. Demand for tungsten carbide powder in the mining industry also took a hit and further led to decreased demand for tungsten carbide powder.
Tungsten carbide powder manufacturers are expected to resort to various strategies to boost their business potential in the post-pandemic world. The tungsten carbide powder market is expected to evolve at a steady pace in the post-pandemic era as restrictions are lifted and the world returns to normal.
Tungsten carbide powder manufacturers are deploying various organic and inorganic strategies to increase their market presence on a global scale, especially after the setback that the COVID-19 pandemic provided.
The tungsten carbide powder market is partially fragmented in nature and is expected to offer lucrative opportunities for new entrants as well as established market players over the years ahead.
