Significant Impact of COVID-19 on Pulp and Paper in Chemicals & Materials Industry

COVID-19 Impact on Pulp and Paper in Chemicals and Materials Industry INTRODUCTION COVID-19 outbreaks have developed across the globe and it hampers the demand of various products around the globe on a wider range. Many countries like Italy, India, U.S. and China have instituted lockdown in their country to reduce the spread of the virus. The virus will first affect the consumer spending patterns, which will cascade across the entire economy. From a pulp and paper perspective, such a pandemic will widely affect the paper and pulp sector. Due to the pandemic the paper sales plunging, as the demand from packaging, education, corporates and the print media has come to a naught with over 80% of the economy is on a standstill. China accounts one-third of the world’s pulp imports market share. Due to the lockdown in China and halting on the import and export from one country to another the entire paper and pulp market were effected as will have to look to domestic markets to mitigate oversupply issues. This was the major concern for various paper and pulp exporter countries such as the U.S., which was by far the largest exporter of paper and pulp products to China. FIGURE 1 GLOBAL PULP MARKET CONSUMPTION SHARE pandemic will reduce the demand of paper as it can boost the demand of towel and tissue worldwide. Health officials have stressed the importance of washing of hands to prevent the spreading of virus which could have the biggest impact for pulp and paper demand. The COVID-19 pandemics will widely affect the e-commerce industries and packaging industries which required a pulp and paper in bulk quantity. As the government imposed the restriction on travelling the consumer are preferring online grocery and other essential delivery services which required a wide range of paper products.

Significant Impact of COVID-19 on Global Mobile Robot Charging Station in Semiconductors & Electronics Industry

COVID-19 Impact on Global Mobile Robot Charging Station in Semiconductors and Electronics Industry Coronavirus outbreak impacted almost first half of the global economy by initiating lockdown to control the spread of virus almost in every country. Governments of various countries initiated lockdown for certain period to reduce spread formed by the human physical interaction. Manufacturing facilities, sport, entertainment, transportation and other industries are shut downed for certain period excluding only companies which are dealing with COVID-19 are allowed to run their operations. Now after almost six months of the year 2020 the manufacturing facilities and other industrial verticals are restarting their operations with some mandate precaution measures. Market players with limited resources such as 20%-50% employees on the field, social distancing, extreme hygiene measures and others highlighted the importance for automation. Coronavirus outbreak impacted almost entire industrial sector but its created opportunity for charging mobile stations to grow rather than declining. As market players or service sectors are replacing the human resources with the robots in the field such as COVID-19 detecting robots, automatic robotics arms at manufacturing, delivery drones and others the demand of supportive charging solution is also increasing. The visibility of advanced charging solution is increased as the importance of robotics solution is increased to control such pandemic situation. Space is big constraint for the industries and maintaining physical distancing as the new regulation is not feasible for the every organization, hence to resolve this issue currently robotics and automation are prominent solutions for almost every industry and service sector from grocery store to manufacturing plant. Market players, hospitals are adopting the robotics into the operational field in this COVID-19 situation such as SMP Robotics Systems Corp. a market player offered a disinfectant spraying robot S8.2 for the COVID-19 operations. The mobile robot comes with an advanced charging station such as automatic charging/refueling station. AFTERMATH OF THE MOBILE ROBOT CHARGING STATION MARKET COVID-19 created major impact on the manufacturing industry as the plants are shut down for the certain period which decreased the production volume. Similarly it hampered the mobile robot charging station production and reduced the sale. On other hand it increased the importance of the contactless mobile charging station to eliminate physical contact, human task and others. The importance or picture of the mobile robots, automation and other technologies gained more visibility in the customers mind. Contactless charging stations witnessed tremendous development in the automotive, healthcare and verticals. For instance,

Significant Impact of COVID-19 on Favipiravir in Pharmaceutical Industry

COVID-19 Impact on Favipiravir in Pharmaceutical Industry OVERVIEW A novel corona virus, SARS-CoV-2, appeared in December 2019 in Wuhan, China, spreading much faster than its predecessors and the virus has already infected millions of patients worldwide as of April 19, 2020. As the scope of the current COVID-19 outbreak has reached proportion of pandemics, major international efforts in public health are underway to control the outbreak. However, as definitive treatments for confirmed COVID-19 are yet to be identified, there is considerable interest in repeating existing antiviral drugs for use against COVID-19. Favipiravir triphosphate is a purine nucleoside analogue. This acts as a competitive inhibitor of RNA-dependent RNA polymerase. It has activities against influenza A and B, including oseltamivir- and zanamivir-resistant influenza viruses, several antimicrobial antiviral drugs, such as SARS-CoV-2. Favipiravir is approved for influenza strains that do not respond to standard antiviral therapy in Japan. IMPACT ON PRICE A large number of challenges are being faced by various market players due to the coming of the novel coronavirus, one such issue is the uncertainty surrounding the impact of covid-19 on favipiravir demands. Due to the increased demand of favipiravir for coronavirus treatment and stiff competition between the market players the rice of favipiravir has decreased.

Impact of COVID-19 on Diabetes Treatment Market in Pharmaceutical Industry

COVID-19 Impact on Diabetes Treatment Market in Pharmaceutical Industry OVERVIEW The COVID-19 has posed a complex challenge in front of different healthcare market players, which has badly impacted the worldwide market. The COVID-19 disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus is a newly discovered infectious disease, and it has been reported that along with respiratory organs it also affects the other organs such as kidney, heart, digestive tract, blood and nervous system. This has been reported that the older people and people having pre-existing medical conditions such as diabetes, asthma among others are more vulnerable to prevailing COVID-19. If people having diabetes develop COVID-19 infection, it becomes harder to treat the fluctuating blood glucose levels and hence it becomes difficult to treat the diabetes complications. As the diabetic patients have weak immune system, those people are generally took longer recovery period. Moreover, the environment of elevated blood glucose levels provides and ambient condition for the survival of coronavirus for a longer period of time. The prevailing COVID-19 has resulted in lockdown in order to prevent the uninfected people from those of infected one; this lockdown has created a stressful mind among the people having chronic disease such as diabetes related to medicines and diagnostic tools. The COVID-19 is likely to infect people having diabetes with 50% higher risk as compared to those who do not having diabetes. Thus, it is very much important for diabetic patients to maintain accurate blood glucose level and also to strengthen the immune system to stay protected from getting infected from the virus.
