Talc Market: COVID-19 Impact
As soon as the novel coronavirus cast its ugly shadow across the globe, a spate of disruptions and tremendous losses were observed. The COVID-19 pandemic changed the dynamics of almost every sector. The SARS-CoV-2 outbreak has hurt nearly every sector. The talc market is no exception. Due to the increasing transmission rates, numerous countries imposed stay-at-home orders for all its citizens. This led to massive losses and also impacted the global fabric of the economy.
During the strict lockdown period, manufacturing units and production facilities were also shut. This led to decreased production. Thus, this factor negatively influenced the growth rate of the talc market. To add to the woes, the demand for talc reduced considerably due to almost no production activity across other end-users.
Nonetheless, many countries are now introducing relaxations in lockdown and have allowed the companies to operate with proper SOPs in place. This aspect may help the talc market to regain its lost growth. Barring this short-term negative impact on the growth of the talc market, the forecast period looks promising.
