Impact of COVID-19:

Halt on Manufacturing and Oil & Gas Extraction Operations to Impede Market Progress

This market is expected to be negatively affected during the COVID-19 pandemic because of the restrictions on manufacturing activities. The sudden spike in COVID-19 has led to the imposition of stringent lockdown measures, which, in turn, may negatively affect production activities. Further, the halt on oil & gas operations has declined IRM’s adoption. The lack of demand and supply leads to huge losses for manufacturers. However, the ease of lockdown restrictions and the adoption of safety measures, production machinery, reduced capacities, and part-time shifts have helped companies resume their activities and design efficient solutions. This factor may propel the industry’s growth during the pandemic.
