Unprecedented Demand for Ventilators Strikes Semicon Manufactures amid COVID-19 Pandemic

Due to the rising COVID-19 cases in Germany, Brazil, and India, there has been an unprecedented demand for ventilators to treat patients. WIKA USA - a measuring instruments supplier in Gonzales, Louisiana, has stepped up its manufacturing for their MG-1 medical pressure transducers. Since the novel infection is causing increased respiratory distress, healthcare facilities are in need of mechanical ventilator supplies that deliver precise levels of oxygen and air that patients need until they fully recover.

The growing incidence of Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) in coronavirus patients has triggered the demand for ventilators. Since the business in automotive and chemical industries has slowed down, manufacturers in the pressure transducer market are focusing on ventilator supply, pharmaceutical, and F&B (Food & Beverage) industries to keep the economies running.

These factors are expected to drive the pressure transducer market during the forecast period.
