How COVID-19 Impacted on Dissolving Pulp and Paper in the Chemicals & Materials Industry ?
COVID-19 Impact on Dissolving Pulp and Paper in the Chemicals and Materials Industry COVID-19 (Coronavirus) has affected the day-to-day life of people and has slowed down the economies worldwide. The pandemic has affected millions of people who either got sick or died due to the spread of this disease. Within a few months, coronavirus disease (COVID-19), which originated from China, became a pandemic, with more than 30 million people being infected to date. There are now numerous vaccines in use. The first mass vaccination program commenced in early December 2020, and as of 15 February 2021, 175.3 million vaccine doses have been administered. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the global dissolving pulp & paper market significantly. The persistence of COVID-19 for a longer period has affected the supply and demand chain as it got disrupted, and it became difficult to supply the raw material for dissolving pulp and paper across different countries. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the dissolving pulp and paper market is expecting a decline globally due to movement restriction, de-globalization, loss of income, restriction on import and export of products, restriction in the supply of raw materials, among others. All these factors have impacted the market growth negatively. The COVID-19 has led to the lockdown all around the world, which has impacted the dissolving pulp and paper market tremendously as it leads to lack of availability of raw material, labour shortage, shipping problems, highly inflated prices, and others. The demand for dissolving pulp has increased all around the world, owing to rapid changes in lifestyle. The increasing demand for packaged food and fresh food are the main factors impacting the growth of paper packaging, which ultimately increases the demand for dissolving pulp and paper markets. IMPACT ON PRICE The dissolving pulp and paper product is costly as the machines and technology used to manufacture high-quality products are on the higher side, which makes the end product more expensive. Also, the research for the raw material used is tedious and time-consuming. Furthermore, the maintenance of machines, technology used to make dissolving pulp and paper products add up to additional prices. The fluctuating prices of raw material for dissolving pulp and paper is the main factor restricting the growth of the market. Moreover, after a pandemic, the demand for dissolving pulp and paper products has suddenly increased in various industries, and with rising demand, the prices for dissolving pulp and paper have increased. IMPACT ON DEMAND AND SUPPLY CHAIN The demand and supply for dissolving pulp and paper had initially decreased during the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic as it resulted in lockdown, due to which, initially, a lot of paper-based products were not used as it was not a necessity. Also, due to restriction on movement, there was a halt on the manufacturing process of end-user industries like the food industry, textile industry, pharmaceutical industry and other. But after the lockdown was lifted, the demand for dissolving pulp and paper products has increased as all the work of the end-user industry has resumed, and demand for dissolving pulp and paper has increased in food, pharmaceutical, personal care, and other industry. The rising demand is enabling manufacturers to launch new products in the market even during the COVID-19 pandemic. For instance, · In April 2020, Sappi launched Ultracast Viva, a textured release paper line made for high-fidelity PVC, PU, semi-PU, and solvent-free casting systems. This new product launch helps in maintaining sustainable practices and environmental-friendly manufacturing and helped the company in enhancing its product portfolio · In April 2020, Gulf Paper Manufacturing Company expanded its business by boosting the manufacturing capacity of packaging grades and manufactures tissue in Kuwait. This expansion helped the company in offering more products to their customers to achieve a leading position in the Kuwait market · In October 2020, UPM launched UPM SolideTM in the specialty papers category. It's food-safe kraft papers that are recyclable in regular paper recycling streams and used for packaging. This new product launch aimed to produce recyclable products to enhance their product portfolio and to contribute to the sustainable environment The increasing number of launches by the manufacturers to fulfil the demand of end-user industries even during the time of pandemic would boost the market growth even after COVID-19. However, the high prices of the product are one of the major restraining factors for the global dissolving pulp & paper market. AFTERMATH OF COVID-19 After the outbreak of COVID-19 ends, the demand for dissolving pulp and paper would be increasing as there won't be any more restrictions on movement, and the procurement of raw material would be easy, and the manufacturers could easily provide dissolving pulp and paper to the end-users. The presence of a relatively young population all around the world is increasing the demand for dissolving pulp and paper as with growing urbanization, the consumption pattern has changed, and they are more attracted towards packaged and processed food products or ready-to-go meals, which has directly increased the demand for tissue papers or paper packaging products. Additionally, growing concern related to the environment is another factor that would propel the market in the future. Dissolving pulp and paper are sustainable renewable products that help in contributing towards sustainability. Also, to promote sustainability, young consumers are opting for clothes that are made from dissolving pulp and paper to save the environment. Thus, the growing concern related to the environment and the growing need for dissolving pulp in different industries such as textile, food, and others would propel the growth of the market. CONCLUSION COVID-19 pandemic has affected almost all industries, including the dissolving pulp and paper market globally. Also, the COVID-19 outbreak has affected the economy on a global level. The COVID-19 pandemic has led to the lockdown all around the world, which has impacted the demand as well as supply of dissolving pulp and paper products across countries. After the lift of the lockdown, the demand will suddenly increase owing to increase demand for pulp and paper products in different industries such as food, cosmetics, personal care, pharmaceuticals, textile, and others. Moreover, with the growing urbanization, the young population is also opting for on-the-go food, which has suddenly increased the demand for tissue papers which will boost the growth for dissolving pulp and paper in the market. Moreover, the rising concern related to the environment is another factor boosting the growth of the global dissolving pulp and paper market. However, with rising demand, the prices of dissolving pulp and paper products are increasing, which may hamper the growth of the market as it makes it hard to afford high-priced products in developing countries or by middle-class consumers. Therefore, with the rising demand for dissolving pulp and paper in various industries, the market would grow after COVID-19 pandemic is over.
97% vs 3%
Society is divided up between two categories. There's the 97% and the 3%. The 97% are the average people. They work 9-5 jobs, focused too much on their education, don't think outside the box, and simply quit on themselves and their goals (if they had any significantly big ones). Yes, some people chose to be a part of that percentile and that's ok because it's their choice. They wanted it to be easy. But for those who complain about it have no right to. They may be thinking "I work 8 hours a day. I deserve better and should be living a better life." In reality they don't. They knew what they were getting themselves into and what the rest of their life would be like. They have made their choice a have given up on what could have been, for them, a life full of rewards and luxury. They decide to see the obvious instead of what's further ahead, and when they see the obvious, they hurt themselves more by looking at it through one perspective. These are the people who have simply said "I will do my part in society no matter the cost." Education plays a huge factor in your destiny. Some dream jobs do require an advanced education. When this is present, education is ok to take part in for it is needed to achieve a dream. For jobs that don't require education, you simply are spending $100,000 to people who will never know your name. The 3% of people in society are the people who put themselves away from society. They're the entrepreneurs in this world, the people loaded with confidence, they ignore what people say, etc. These people realized they have so much potential in their life and they take the opportunity even when it's not present. To be where they are they took the risks and sacrifices and understood what outcomes could come. Every penny they've ever made was put into what they believed in even if it was a dream or goal so big it scared them. Fear is not present in these people. They realized the only thing that could really stop them was fear therefore they learned to overcome it. No matter the criticism they received, negative comments they've been told, or even simply being told "you can't do it." 24 hours was not enough for them to get what they needed done so they would put in a full 24 hours of work. Now, depending on who they are and their stories, they could have had an easy start or challenging one. Some entrepreneurs were lucky enough to have a family member who already started the business or gave a startup of $1,000,000. But some start with nothing but a dollar and a vision. One feels much more rewarding than the other and causes them to have a bigger appreciation for what they have and have done. The 3% are always hungry no matter what they have. They will not stop until they have what they want. There are many quotes for these people but the quote posted best describes them. So now that you know a little about the two sides of society, which one will you choose? Are you happy with where you stand? Or do you want better? It's never too late to change or start. All it takes is confidence, hard work, and a drive strong enough that you constantly think "I can't quit now." Keep pushing towards what you want and stop at nothing. Have a good day guys, Kyler
Impact of COVID-19 on Grain-Oriented Electrical Steel in Chemicals & Materials Industry
COVID-19 Impact on Grain-Oriented Electrical Steel in Chemicals and Materials Industry Grain oriented electrical steel is a category of electrical steel which comprises iron-silicon alloys that are developed to provide the low core loss and high permeability, which are required for efficient and economical electrical transformers in power generation application. COVID-19 has adversely affected the demand of the global grain oriented electrical steel market, particularly, power and energy sector. Pandemic has also affected the import and export of the steel products across all the regions, which has resulted in the decline in the demand of the grain oriented electrical steel. The demand of the grain oriented electrical steel has declined approximately by 12%-14% in the COVID-19 period. The COVID-19 has unbiasedly affected all sectors due to which the mandate of the several products in the global as well as in the domestic market has fallen down. The prevailing grain oriented electrical steel demand conditions in the majority of developing nations demonstrates that the electrical steel consumption have deteriorated in the pandemic situation. Several large industries who are engaged in the manufacturing of grain oriented electrical steel product have faced several challenges towards the sale of the raw material for the finished goods due to shutdowns in the manufacturing of the several industries such as in automotive and electronic goods. This has led to the lower demand of the electrical steel in the global market AFTER MATH OF COVID-19 AND GOVERNMENT INITIATIVE TO BOOST THE GLOBAL GRAIN ORIENTED ELECTRICAL STEEL MARKET The demand of the home appliances have fallen during the COVID-19 by approximately by 45% due to which the demand of the electrical steel products in the electrical manufacturing industry has decreased. The large industry has resulted in less demand of the new machinery and components due to which demand of the electrical steel in manufacturing of motors and electrical ballasts have reduced during the pandemic situation. Post COVID, developing economies, such as China is expected to move more rapidly towards normalization of economic activity for the different sectors. This will increase the demand of the electrical steel products, and will increase the import for grain oriented electrical steel. With the stringent government regulation, particularly, in the field of infrastructure, the demand of the grain oriented electrical steel products such as hot-rolled sheets and cold rolled sheets would subsequently increase. Automobile manufacturers are heavily investing funds in the market. With the increase in the demand for the modern electric vehicles, the demand for the grain oriented electrical steel is set to rise in the global market. STRATEGIC DECISIONS FOR MANUFACTURERS AFTER COVID-19 TO GAIN COMPETITIVE MARKET SHARE Pre-pandemic, manufactures had financial stability; however, COVID-19 had forced the manufactures into extreme slumps. The effects of the pandemic will largely affect the small and medium business. The grain oriented electrical steel is extensively used in the manufacturing of the electric motors and components which are brought to application in the electric appliances. During the COVID-19, manufacturing of the heavy electrical equipment have tumbled down which result in the fall in the demand for the electricals steels in motors application. Several types of components are used in the transformers which have different flux density which help to lower the wastage of the energy during transmission but the demand of the different size of transformers have fallen down due to which demand of the grain oriented electrical steel from equipment manufacturers have fallen down. During the pandemic, several electrical equipment manufacturers have shut down the production for more than six months which has had a bad impact on the demand of electrical steel market. PRICE IMPACT Steel industry is also playing a crucial role in the electrical steel market since tons of steel and other metals are used in the manufacturing of the grain oriented electrical steel. The pandemic has also impacted the demand of the steel products in all the regions. In the U.S., steel mills have to adjust their production activities to avoid rising inventories and declining prices of the steel products which result in lower revenue generation. As demand of the steel is declining, integrated steelmaker in U.S. steel manufacture has decided to idle blast furnaces and cut production of steel. Japan steel production is expected to decline by 25.9% as per the Vietnam Steel Association (VSA), companies associated with the VSA registered a 15% decline in steel production and a 38% reduction in steel exports in Q1 2020. COVID-19 has adversely affected the steel prices as the demand of the steel has fallen down as lockdown in several industries. IMPACT ON DEMAND During the COVID-19, manufacturing of the heavy electrical equipment have tumbled down, which resulted in the declined demand for the grain oriented electricals steel. Several types of components are used in the transformers which have different flux density that help to lower the wastage of the energy during transmission. However, the demand of the different size of transformers has collapsed. During the pandemic, several electrical equipment manufacturers have shut down the production for indefinite time period, which have adverse impact on the demand of grain oriented electrical steel market IMPACT ON SUPPLY CHAIN Power and energy industry is heavily relying on Supply Chain Management (SCM). Improvement in the supply chain has always been demanded by the manufacturers and the end users. The COVID-19, which led to the abrupt halt of the transportation sector, indirectly affected the supply chain for the grain oriented electrical steel market. Manufacturers had to bear the storage cost as well as had to face the consequences for the late conveyances. The delivery of raw goods was adjourned or annulled, which resulted in the rise of the cost to the end users. The Import-export of the final product was also severely wedged, hindering the completion of major projects, resulting in increased costs. CONCLUSION The COVID-19 crisis has created the pandemic situation widely, which affected the growth of the overall steel industry. The demand in the energy and power, building and construction, automotive activities have withered down globally. The nationwide lockdown across the globe for all the manufacturing units, construction activities and others, resulted in lower demand of grain oriented electrical steel products, which eventually, lead to huge loss for manufactures. The manufacturer of grain oriented electrical steel components and equipment had to abruptly halt the production which had its impact on the supply-chain. Flux in the demand of the electricity in different countries have lowered and has proportionally affected the demand of the grain oriented electrical steel products in the energy and power sector. The fluctuation in the price of steel has also impacted the manufacturing of the grain oriented electrical steel. Progressive demand of electricity and power in the man industry and launch electrical vehicles will increase the demand of grain oriented electrical steel in coming years.
How Impacted COVID-19 on U.S. Shale Gas in Chemical Industry ?
Impact of COVID-19 on U.S. Shale Gas in Chemical Industry INTRODUCTION Shale gas and shale oil are defined as natural gas & oil from shale formations. Shale is a type of sedimentary rock that is made up of very small clay particles and is highly porous in nature. It is formed in deep ocean water, lagoons, wetlands, and swamps where the water is still enough for extremely fine clay and silt particles to settle to the bottom. Since shale is a porous formation, it serves as both a source and a reservoir for unconventional hydrocarbons. The extraction of oil and gas from a shale formation involves mechanical stimulation. One such technique for stimulation is hydraulic fracturing or fracking. In the fracking process, cracks in and below the Earth's surface are opened and widened by injecting water, chemicals, and sand at high pressure. The combination of horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracking has made it possible to access vast quantities of shale gas that were previously uneconomical to generate. Natural gas output from shale deposits has given the United States natural gas industry a new lease on life. The demand for safe access to energy sources is growing globally. Shale oil and gas have played an important role in meeting global energy demand during the energy revolution and are expected to continue to do so for decades as society transitions to lower-carbon energy sources. The rapid growth of shale oil and gas contributes to increased supply stability and lower commodity prices. According to the United States Energy Information Administration (EIA), in the year 2011, the country’s estimated available natural gas resources totaled 2,552 trillion cubic feet (Tcf). Natural gas from shale deposits, which was once considered to be uneconomical, accounted for 827 Tcf of this resource total. In the year 2020, U.S. dry shale gas production was about 26 trillion cubic feet (Tcf), and equal to about 78% of total U.S. dry natural gas production. IMPACT OF COVID-19 ON U.S. SHALE INDUSTRY Shale oil and gas exploration have, in particular, given the US oil and gas industry new dimensions of development. It has also fueled significant investment in associated infrastructure for gathering, storing, and delivering hydrocarbons to both domestic and foreign markets. In less than a decade, the US shale industry turned the global energy landscape upside down and re-established the US as the global energy leader. The onset of a global pandemic and subsequent drop in oil prices, on the other hand, has taken the momentum out of the shale boom. Due to a sudden drop in demand, the shale industry has immediately self-corrected. Many oil and gas players succumbed to the economic shock resulted from the CoVID-19 and filed for bankruptcy. Chesapeake Energy, a shale leader and once second-largest gas producer in the United States, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in late June. According to the United States Energy Information Administration (EIA), the crude-oil output from seven major shale formations in the United states fell by around 56,000 barrels per day (BPD) in August 2020 to just under 7.5 million BPD, which would be the lowest level in two years. The shale industry is closely looped in with the oil and gas industry. The recent downfall of the oil and gas industry during the pandemic has had a severe impact on shale output. Post pandemic, the shale industry peaked, but the industry as a whole lost money. Since 2010, the US shale industry has produced USD 300 billion in net negative free cash flows, damaged more than USD 450 billion in invested capital, and seen more than 190 bankruptcies. With the advent of the coronavirus, the future for shale producers has become even bleaker, with a new bankruptcy filing occurring every week or so in the last few months. The pandemic's effects will be felt far beyond the US shale industry. Despite accounting for less than 10% of global oil and gas output, US shale oil extraction activity accounts for 40% of global shale oil extraction activity and accounts for nearly 100% of the growth in US midstream and export-oriented refining and petrochemical sectors over the last decade. STRATEGIC INITIATIVES DURING COVID-19 · Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) agreed on a continuation of March production levels for the month of April, with the exception of Russia and Kazakhstan, which will be authorized to increase production by 130,000 and 20,000 barrels per day, respectively, at their most recent meeting · Saudi Arabia has also agreed to extend its one-million-barrel-per-day voluntary cut for the month of April. · Companies such as Chevron, Shell, Schlumberger, and others have taken initiatives to safeguard their workforce in the ongoing pandemic situation. CONCLUSION On Conclusion, the pandemic has placed the shale industry in a delicate spot as major players are forced to cut down the output. The potential energy landscape in the United States and around the world is highly complex, and its drivers are interconnected. In the not-too-distant future, a wave of consolidation in the US shale industry could be triggered by the poor financial position of many firms and the weak economic outlook. The continuous demand for a ban on fracking, coupled with the effect of COVID, has cracked the shale industry severely. Although, the historic evidence indicates that the shale producers operate more economically. In comparison to 2019, producers in the Permian Basin are saving roughly 20% on good costs.
Significant COVID-19 Impact on Predictive Maintenance in ICT Industry
COVID-19 Impact on Predictive Maintenance in the Information and Communication Technology Industry The pandemic began with its epicenter in China in 2019 and has been continuously spreading by then to all over the globe. So far, 216 countries and territories have been affected by COVID-19. The COVID-19 cases reached various countries that have strong dominance in the worldwide market and have adversely affected economic growth globally. The spread of coronavirus has led to severe disruption such as global recession. Many organizations are being forced to take stringent actions for their employees and staffs, as small and medium businesses are being shut down, and manufacturing and production facilities are being put on hold for a longer period of time. However, the demand for food and beverages witnessed huge growth, but this has also, increased the shortage of supply chain owing to the panic among people. Similarly, the demand for the pharmaceuticals, chemicals, and healthcare industry also increased as new solutions and medicines are introduced for preventive measures. There has been disruption in the supply chain of many industries due to restrictions in logistics and closing of manufacturing facilities. In addition, the slowdowns in the economy have lowered the spending capability of individuals, and people are saving money for emergencies. Predictive maintenance refers to the data-driven, pro-active maintenance methods to analyze the condition of equipment and help predict when maintenance should be performed. The COVID-19 pandemic has had an impact on the technological sector as well. The disruptions in the production and supply in the hardware sector have significantly impacted the developments in the IT industry. The pandemic has resulted in health threats for humans in the manufacturing sector which incurs severe disruptions and complex issues to industrial networks. The initial part of the pandemic witnessed the slowdown in the businesses providing solutions and services. But the latter part saw increasing investments in analytics, collaborative applications, security solutions, and AI by many players in the market to sketch out a sustainable way of carrying on business activities amidst the pandemic threat. The pandemic has disrupted the industrial networks and manufacturing, including supply disruptions and demand-side shocks. Quarantines and health risks impacted the suppliers and global transportation, which affected the manufacturing sector. For instance, For the year 2020, manufacturing, and production was affected in 938 of the Fortune 1000 companies in China due to the disruptions faced by the tier 1 and tier 2 suppliers. This has affected the abilities of many companies to ramp up production. This created the need in the market to enhance manufacturing processes to make them robust and sustainable to the market anomalies. These factors increased the demand for analytics professionals, business intelligence professionals, and applications of technologies such as AI and ML for predictive maintenance to make the manufacturing system agile and increase the production capacity. IMPACT ON DEMAND AND SUPPLY CHAIN AND LONG-TERM STRATEGIES ADOPTED BY MANUFACTURERS Digital transformation has been the area of focus for a long time now for businesses. The COVID-19 pandemic has led many manufacturers and organizations to intensively invest in technologies across multiple business lines to sustain themselves in the disruptive market. For instance, a 2020 Deloitte Industry 4.0 survey states that out of the 361 executives surveyed across 11 countries, 94% report digital transformation as their organization’s top strategic initiative. With the easing regulations and life coming back to normalcy, the manufacturing sector is witnessing growing demand to ramp up production around the globe. Businesses are looking to maximizing throughout and increasing efficiency. Industries are increasingly adopting analytics to make manufacturing more resilient. Preventive maintenance is one of the important processes helping businesses to optimize efficiency. To meet the growing demands and to make up for losses, the industries are looking to produce in 9 months what they earlier did in 12 months. This has made it important to reduce downtimes in manufacturing plants, and the adoption of predictive maintenance is believed to play an important role in the direction. For instance, according to an ITIF research report, manufacturing productivity increases by 10-25% with IoT applications for monitoring machine utilization and maintenance. The increasing adoption of this technology will produce up to USD 1.8 Trillion global economic value by 2025. Industrial automation had been the focus of many manufacturers around the globe. The incorporation of IoT and technologies such as AI, Big data, and ML has been at the forefront for business owners and organizations to transform their business digitally. Manufacturers are gaining a strategic edge in the market in uncertain pandemic times, and are increasingly adopting predictive maintenance technologies to reduce the company’s maintenance costs, reduce unplanned outages, and extend machinery life by years. For instance, according to a 2020 survey by Deloitte, factory equipment maintenance costs can be reduced by 40% using IIoT based predictive maintenance technologies. This will help generate an economic value of USD 630 billion annually by 2025. 55% of the businesses surveyed have already implemented pilot predictive maintenance projects. The pandemic has forced employees to work from remote sites complying with social distancing norms. The manufacturers are intensively implementing IoT devices and digital transformation for providing the employees the ability to share and receive data and insights of the manufacturing floor in real-time to handle operations and monitor machine conditions. This has enabled agile decision-making, efficient operations, and avoiding unnecessary human presence on the site. The manufacturers are continuously developing new products, partnerships, collaborations for the predictive maintenance market. The initial stages of the pandemic saw a disturbance in the global supply chain. Limited manufacturing capacity and congested transport routes disturbed the supply ecosystem and impacted the costs of the end products. The disturbance has also been due to the restrictions imposed on logistics by various governments which affect raw material supply. The trade war between the U.S. and China has put a strain on the supply chain of electronics in the market, which is an important raw material for the home automation product manufacturers. For instance, In 2020, according to a survey by IPC, a trade organization dedicated to advocacy, education, and support for the electronics industry, around 69% of survey respondents had received warnings from their suppliers about shipment delays. The average delay between February to March 2020 was about three weeks. PRICE IMPACT The COVID-19 lockdown imposed by the government of the world had impacted the prices of predictive maintenance services. The increase in supply chain costs automatically increased the hardware cost around the world, in the beginning of the pandemic due to congested shipment routes and other factors. The lack of workforce and restriction on travel impacted the service sector and hence impacted the prices. The increased demand for the predictive maintenance in multiple sectors of the industry will impact the prices of the service. CONCLUSION The COVID-19 has not only attacked the health of human lives but has adversely affected the economy globally. There is a recession worldwide, and various industries have been affected due to it. Many manufacturing industries are being temporarily closed, and workers are being advised to work from home. Organizations and enterprises had to make a difficult decision in regards to staff, which are often unavoidable if businesses need to reduce costs quickly. Machine maintenance became harder in the manufacturing sector due to lack of staff in the pandemic, travel restrictions, and the shift to working from home as a standard procedure, making it difficult to have routine inspections and on-site maintenance. This forced the organizations to move towards technologies such as predictive maintenance and develop a more resilient manufacturing unit. The focus was diverted majorly towards remote maintenance, manufacturing cost efficiency, and preventing unplanned downtime. This boosted the adoption of preventive maintenance practices in industries. For instance, according to the UpKeep 2021 report, maintenance and reliability teams have remained financially stable during the COVID-19 period. Of all the maintenance teams surveyed, 66% say their budget is either staying the same or increasing in 2021.
