RestraintsDecreased utilization of nonessential goods during the COVID19 pandemic

The wake of the COVID19 pandemic has disrupted various sectors’ entire demand & supply chainMore than 100 countries have locked international borders for transportation and nonessential trade activitiesThe manufacturing industries are operating at half capacity during this pandemic due to the risk of infection among the workforceThe liquidity crunch and financial crisis have decreased silicon carbide (SiCfiber demand.

Also, the lockdowns have been imposed in the countries where aerospace & defense sectors are contributing a major share to the economy’s growth, such as the U.S., France, China, India, Germany, and others, which has resulted in reduced demand for SiC fiberThus, these factors may hamper the growth of the silicon carbide fiber market amid the COVID19 pandemic.
