The Projected Impact of Coronavirus

The technical textile industry has been moderately impacted during the coronavirus pandemic. Lockdown restrictions on construction and industrial activities have reduced demand for technical textiles sharply. In addition, nationwide lockdowns have restricted supplies and production of technical textiles as well. On the other hand, extensive requirement for specialized technical textiles for healthcare PPE production during the pandemic has generated critical growth opportunities to recoup some of the losses sustained during this period.
