COVID-19 Impact

Production Delays & Volatility in Raw Material Pricing to Degrade Market Growth

The COVID-19 pandemic had a devastating effect on the aviation industry. The dominant players seem to bypass the economic backlash caused by the pandemic even after facing delays in product launches and disruptions in supply chains. However, some players faced huge revenue losses due to supply chain faltering and production losses. Additionally, imposed lockdowns and delays in the transport sector will further push the space sensors industry toward negative growth.
