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.

COVID-19 Impact on Bulk Material Handling System in Semiconductors and Electronics Industry The lockdown situation during the COVID-19 pandemic has highly impacted the global economy. Most of the governments from different countries imposed a lockdown to break the chain of coronavirus spread. All companies related to various industries have been shut down except a few dealing with COVID-19 operations such as pharmaceutical, essential goods and services and the food industry. As a result of the COVID-19 crisis, many bulk material handling companies throughout the world have had to either temporarily close or reduce their workforces to prevent the spread of the virus. Through worldwide shortages of goods, it soon was apparent how important the world’s manufacturing and warehouse productivity is to the economy. In the bulk material handling system market, the business impact eventually proved to be less severe than first anticipated once lockdowns and restrictions were lifted. Nevertheless, the limited access to customers’ sites affected both capital and aftermarket sales of suppliers throughout the year. The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted that automation is needed for supply chains to increase efficiency. During the recent period, very few percent of supply chains felt fully prepared for the coronavirus impact. However, the bulk material handling industry can develop this situation with innovation, automation and perseverance. AFTERMATH OF GLOBAL BULK MATERIAL HANDLING SYSTEM MARKET COVID-19 pandemic affected a wide range of industries, from small to large manufacturing companies. It hampered the worldwide demand for solutions in the bulk material handling system market up to a certain extent. Limited workforce and operational restrictions negatively affected the product development life cycle. But at later stages, when lockdown restrictions were lifted, demand got stable up to a certain point. The companies developed different strategies and technologies specific to tackle problems that occurred because of the COVID-19 pandemic. For instance, · Daifuku Co., Ltd., a material handling company, stated some measures and strategies to overcome the challenges faced during the COVID-19 pandemic in their annual report 2020. To prevent the spread of COVID-19 and maintain distance from one another required a new approach to service activities for systems post-delivery. Accordingly, they are working hard to use the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI) and information and communications technology (ICT) to establish material handling systems that never stop or that will be able to recover immediately even if blocked. They will continue to support stable operations of customer facilities by introducing new technologies and services, including remote operation, while ensuring the lives, safety and health of employees and their families. Likewise, many companies have started introducing new technologies and methodologies in the COVID-19 situation to remain better positioned in the market. Losses during this period can be overcome in the future by taking this slowdown to redesign and refresh the business processes and logistics operations. OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE MARKET IN COVID-19 SITUATION Market players have an opportunity to upgrade their operations and prospective for the betterment of their companies. Automation is the key to success in this unpredictable world. Different crises, labour shortages, natural disasters impact a lot on every industry. So being one step ahead of time and understanding the market well will ensure the success of the market player. In this COVID-19 pandemic, many companies adopted process automation and customization as an opportunity to survive and grow. Some of the instances are mentioned below: § Automation to overcome labor shortage: Though recent events have worsened the labor gap, the labor shortage is not new for many industries, as more workers retire and skills requirements increase. Automation offers solutions to some of these problems. Automated Process Equipment Corporation provides solutions and services for bulk material handling companies to overcome labor shortages during this pandemic situation. Super sack handling, accurate measuring, automatic routing, easily reprogrammable controls and electronic record keeping are solutions that will improve automation and reduce the dependency on the massive number of laborers. § Customized Solutions for Booming Market: KWS Manufacturing Company Ltd. partnered up with Coperion K-Tron to provide the solution for the world’s most significant high-density polyethylene and polypropylene suppliers, which is used in consumer and industrial goods ranging from plastic bags and bottles to N95 medical masks and face shields. Due to the increased demand for polyethylene and polypropylene, expanding the client’s extrusion line required new loss-in-weight additive feeders and a mixing screw conveyor. KWS and Coperion K-Tron sales and engineering teams collaborated to ensure the extrusion line expansion would be successful. IMPACT ON SUPPLY AND DEMAND COVID-19 has disrupted the supply chain on a global scale. International trade restrictions and customs regulations resulted in longer wait times and a lack of capacity for long-haul deliverables. During this pandemic, the demand for bulk material handling solutions decreased because of the limited access to customers’ sites. This affected both capital and aftermarket sales throughout the year. Most of the companies faced challenges in managing on-time project completion and order deliveries. However, many companies took this to redesign their operation and logistic models with digital capabilities to increase operational efficiency and effectiveness in such a period. For instance, · ThyssenKrupp AG Company adopted the digitization of their business processes and supply chains in 2019-2020. Their focus was on the introduction of automation solutions which included the new mobile app “Paperless”. This app allowed digitizing day-to-day processes in warehouses such as bookings, preparation of work schedules and material identification. It also created the conditions for using other automation solutions, such as driverless transportation systems, to be used in a new state-of-the-art logistics center for ThyssenKrupp Schulte. Such positive changes and automation in the supply chain will enable the companies to emerge stronger and supply chains that are more resilient to future disruptions. CONCLUSION The global bulk material handling system market suffered losses during the recent period because of COVID-19’s negative impact on global demand and supply chains. Yearly sales for the market-related products got hampered due to limited access to customer’s sites. But relaxation in lockdown regulations after few months helped the market to somewhat come back on track. However, many companies started building new technologies to overcome supply chain problems in pandemic situations. They adopted digitization and automation in day-to-day business processes and supply chains. Although it will take some more time for companies to come back on track, this period made everyone realize the need for up-gradation in many business aspects.
How COVID-19 Impacted on Waste Water Treatment in Chemicals & Materials Industry ?
COVID-19 Impact on Waste Water Treatment in Chemicals and Materials Industry Wastewater treatment involves numerous biological, and chemical process where wastewater that contains contaminants are purified after the removal of the pollutants and the effluent obtained after the purification is cycled back to nature. Although treatment of wastewater normally takes place in a wastewater treatment plant or sewage treatment plant, the capacity, as well as technical capability of the facility varies according to the origin of the wastewater. For instance, wastewater that originates from industries is treated in industrial wastewater treatment plants that are employed with advanced chemical, biological and mechanical pieces of equipment and technologies. Some of the most common classifications of wastewater treatment plants include phase separation, biological and chemical separation, polishing, among others. Since the demand for freshwater is growing exponentially day by day, water treatment or recycling has become a necessity, particularly since urbanization is gaining a stronger pace in emerging economies. As water is an important commodity for human survival and demand for the respective product is expanding. Recycling contaminated water has become of paramount importance. As a result, the global wastewater treatment market is gaining popularity and widespread acceptance across various nooks and crannies of the globe. COVID-19 IMPACT ON GLOBAL WASTEWATER TREATMENT MARKET Even though the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted many a market across the globe and inflicted the global economy with one of the toughest crises after World War II, certain markets benefited from the pandemic from moderate to an extensive scale. The global wastewater treatment market is one such market that gained an additional market push due to the pandemic. Since SARS-CoV-2 viruses are capable of being transferred through water, large-scale treatment of water across cities, municipalities have become extremely important to curtail the spread of the virus. Similarly, the need for proper and advanced wastewater treatment in hospitals has become a major priority for governments as well authorities to contain the secondary spread of the virus. As a result, decentralized wastewater treatment plants with multiple disinfection barriers in quarantine centers, isolation wards, among others are gaining popularity across the post-COVID-19 world. In short, due to the growing demand for clean water for various industrial and human indispensabilities, the overall demand for water treatment has been growing exponentially over the years. Further, the spread of COVID-19 boosted the necessity for proper wastewater treatment in varied segments as the SARS-CoV-2 virus is capable of transferring through water sources. However, due to various restrictions in economic developments and investments such as supply disruptions, and emergency measures implemented by the government, the scale of development in the global wastewater treatment market is lackadaisical. AFTERMATH OF COVID-19 AND GOVERNMENT INITIATIVE TO BOOST THE MARKET To minimize the damage caused by the pandemic COVID-19 across the globe, various governments are implementing various measures. However, several such initiatives are boosting the demand as well as sales of the global wastewater treatment market. For instance, · After a considerable scientific exploration into the pandemic and the SARS-CoV-2 virus responsible for the pandemic, the presence of SARS-CoV-2 in sewage treatment plants was confirmed. As a result, the executive secretary of Basel, Rotterdam and Stockholm Convention (BRS) argued for the importance of wastewater management, particularly from the medical, household, among others, and named it as an essential public service to ensure minimal impacts on human and environment in the battle with COVID-19. Such governmental safety measures could spread awareness regarding wastewater treatment and could boost the pace associated with the growth of the global wastewater treatment market. Nonetheless, the pace of growth is still significantly primitive due to various socio-economic limitations associated with various parts of the world. STRATEGIC DECISIONS FOR MANUFACTURERS AFTER COVID-19 TO GAIN COMPETITIVE MARKET SHARE Manufacturers in the global wastewater treatment market experienced several adversities due to obstructions in the production facilities. Manufacturers have taken many strategic decisions such as collaboration and partnerships for the development of efficient technologies and for increasing production rate to meet the market demand once it returns to normal. Utilizing e-commerce and the establishment of local supply chains are also some of the new strategies used by various manufacturers to counter the effects of COVID-19. Moreover, several industries have enhanced information transparency among each other and are working together to help each other to overcome the financial constraints experienced and to increase cash flow into the business. PRICE IMPACT The price of water treatment equipment and accessories is expected to fluctuate due to an expected disturbance caused by the outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19). Such market fluctuations have prompted manufacturers to find new contract manufacturers and suppliers to shift production operations along with new contracts for the supply of raw materials. Due to an increase in production cost and reduction in profit margins due to the shortage in raw materials, components, and difficulties in the commercialization of products, many a manufacturer is increasing prices of their products. For instance, · In June 2021, Ecolab Inc., a global leader in water, hygiene, and infection prevention solutions and services, has announced that a pricing hike of 9% and 15% will be introduced to the company’s industrial segment products effective immediately or as contracts permit due to an escalation of energy and raw material costs, limited availability of raw materials and rising transportation, packaging, utility and personnel costs IMPACT ON DEMAND COVID-19 has induced a multi-layered crisis comprising domestic price fluctuations, the overall decline of external demand, along the collapse of prices that have an impact on supply and demand for goods. The impact of this could be contemplated across the globe irrespective of the market. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected every aspect and sector as COVID-19 is an emerging, rapidly evolving situation across the world. However, several manufacturers in the global water treatment market have been utilizing this opportunity to launch new products and to address the demand created by the global discovery that the SARS-COV-2 virus is capable of transiting through wastewater. For Instance, · Suez Group introduced monitors the presence of SARS-CoV-2 in wastewater networks, capable of detecting the British variant, among others. This system manufactured by the Suez Group is currently being used in around 100 local communities in Spain, utilized by around 13 million inhabitants. Similarly, the same system is employed in100 local communities in France, with 1.8 million inhabitants. The same water treatment system is also utilized in the UK, the US, and Latin America. In short, it is appropriate to conclude that the pandemic, COVID-19 has boosted the overall demand for wastewater treatment plants and equipment across the globe. Nevertheless, the extent of the respective demand growth is relatively limited. IMPACT ON SUPPLY CHAIN The sudden outbreak of COVID-19 and its subsequent impact on restrictions on trade and movement of goods has resulted in a shutdown of vast portions of the global economy. This has in turn disrupted supply chains of the global wastewater treatment market due to the limited availability of materials and workforce. Further, due to the lockdown scenario, and restrictions in international trade, several manufacturers are also facing difficulties in clearing their old stocks. As a result, it could be conclusive to say that overall of the supply chain of the global wastewater treatment market is affected horrendously by the COVID-19 pandemic. Nevertheless, the governmental measures to unlock economies and global trade in recent months could be considered as a sign of shimmering hope for the global wastewater treatment market. CONCLUSION To recapitulate, although COVID-19 has caused a major disruption to many global economies, the pandemic has slightly boosted the demand in the global wastewater treatment market due to the fact that the SARS-CoV-2 virus, that is responsible for the pandemic could spread through savage water. The governmental regulations and initiatives regarding the urgency to curtail the pandemic also have been helping the respective market to grow. However, due to disruptions in supply chains of final products as well as raw materials, the global wastewater market is unable to tap into the demand and sales growth provided by the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, a large-scale price increase is witnessed in products associated with the respective market. When combining and considering all these factors, it could be concluded that though, the pandemic COVID-19 has been difficult for the global wastewater market, lackadaisical progress could be witnessed for the respective market in terms of demand and sales. However, the respective market is capable of fully unleashing its potential and make excellent economic growth once the current disruptions in supply chains and manufacturing have been retracted.

How COVID-19 Impacted Additive Manufacturing Market in Pharmaceutical Industry ?
COVID-19 Impact on Additive Manufacturing in Pharmaceutical Industry The outbreak of Coronavirus has caused many industries to change the way they operate, and manufacturing industry is no exception. Also, the rise in demand of antiviral drugs was observed along with decrease in demand of drugs for other ailments. The European Fine Chemical Group estimated that 80% and upward of chemicals used in the making pharmaceuticals sold in the Europe region originate from China and India. Everyday millions of patients rely on drugs manufactured and supplied by pharmaceutical industries; shortage of any particular medicine may create chaos. Manufacturers served throughout the pandemic and are still operating to prevent such turmoil. IMPACT ON DEMAND The Coronavirus led to the widespread closure of local manufacturing plants and companies and has badly affected the various region of world. Due to extensive lockdown and isolation the economic activity has affected adversely which has impacted the global economic activity. Manufacturers began to diversify sourcing of raw materials along with investment in spreading production in different regional markets instead of concentrated markets such as India and China. Likely to be long term effect is reindustrialization of pharmaceutical production in countries such as the United States and Europe in order to minimize dependency on imported products, this would lead to rise in demand of additives in above mentioned countries. Moreover the increasing cases of COVID-19 have also paved the way for enhanced demand of additives but due to movement restrictions same decrease in sales was recorded. For instance, · In January 2021, BASF SE had no indication of any major effect on the global activities and supply chain of our BASF Nutrition & Health sector comprising of BASF Pharma Solutions, BASF Animal Nutrition, BASF Human Nutrition, BASF Enzymes and BASF Fragrance Ingredients owing to the COVID-19 pandemic. · In 2020, DuPont de Nemours, Inc. recorded decrease in earning of excipients sales, which belonged to Nutrition and Biosciences segment. This thus signifies that increasing prevalence of COVID-19 poses a life threatening effect to various types of patients already suffering from several kinds of disease among the most recent known COVID-19 pandemic. Thus the demand of effective treatment option that is antiviral drug has enhanced the supply for short term. This thus demonstrates that COVID-19 is accelerating the demand of additive market. PRICE IMPACT Throughout year 2020 the COVID-19 pandemic caused economic turmoil globally, the pharmaceutical industry in particular had to adapt quickly to minimize the impact on its operations and supply chain of drugs worldwide. Raw materials and additives rates have increased due to reduced supplies and delayed manufacturing plans, and shut downs in some countries. The price of additives and raw materials has increased during the COVID-19 pandemic due to numerous air travel restrictions and inefficiency to supply products. For instance, · The shortage has begun to affect API and bulk prices in trades, the average increase in India was reported to be about 10-15%, and is estimated to reach 50% in some cases. · WACKER Chemie AG a Germany based company is about to raise its prices for dispersions and solid resins in Europe, Africa and Middle East region stating that this measure has been necessitated by rise in price of raw materials cost in market. · The Edelweiss Securities predicted that COVID-19 pandemic would cause severe supply disruptions in pharma sectors causing earing cuts by 15%. But globally pharma companies are performing well, in short term most companies are expected to bounce back in five years. This thus signifies that due to COVID-19 pandemic the price of additives used in pharmaceutical productions have increased due to Coronavirus outspread. IMPACT ON SUPPLY As COVID-19 spreading began in China the surge of medicines has been enhanced due to increasing patient’s volume which put a pressure over the supply of pharmaceutical additives. Moreover the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the business environment for more organizations across the globe. Around the world many companies are hugely reliant on supplies and production in China. However the market players are adopting several initiatives in order to maintain a continuous supply of additives. For instance, · As per the news of September, 2020 this has been suggested that Sandoz is working closely with the Association for Accessible Medicines in order to enhance the global pharmaceutical supply chain. · In 2020, Ashland which is an essential supplier, their supply chain continued to operate safely receive, process and ship specialty products during COVID-19. · As per November 2020 Merck KGaA a company specialized in additives and chemicals stated that it continued to leverage their business continuity plans including risk mitigation activities, accelerated investments and adjusted production schedules for few high demand products. · According to the news of March 2020, Roquette Frères stated that they are working in order to minimize the COVID-19 impact on its supply chain. · As per February 2020, FDA closely monitored supply chain with the possibility of potential disruptions in supply of critical medical products in the U.S. Manufacturers alerted FDA about recently added drugs in drugs shortage list. · DFE Pharma claims that their continued production and supply during the pandemic was not affected in Netherlands, India, Germany and New Zealand. Apparently due to COVID-19 effects on global transport industry the shipping companies are charging more than usual. This suggests that increasing prevalence of COVID-19 poses threat for maintaining a continuous supply chain of additives while initiative adopted by market players allows them to manage a continuous supply chain. STRATEGIC DECISIONS OF MANUFACTURERS Additive manufacturing companies are taking so many strategic decisions in order to cope up with the current scenario of COVID-19 pandemic. The companies engaged in manufacturing of additive manufacturers are collaborating so as to accelerate the market growth. Companies have already taken several kinds of strategic initiatives in order to cope up with the Coronavirus situation. Strategic initiatives by market players such as Dow, Ashland, Kerry, BASF SE among others in the market will help them to expand their network and supply chain. This in turn will lead to increasing product sales and hence will enhance the overall company’s revenue. For instance, · In May 2020, Dow during the COVID-19 pandemic was working closely with government officials and medical professionals, using guidance to adjust plans as warranted. · In April 2020, the U.K.’s Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) published guidelines on Exceptional GMP flexibilities which allow manufacturers to increase their production capability to minimize risk of product shortage using quality risk management principles and to navigate through international travel restrictions imposed due to COVID-19. · In April 2020, Lubrizol enabled 1 Billion bottles of hand sanitizer globally every month to increase its Carbopol polymer production, which is used as a thickener. The increasing demand and sales of antiviral drugs are fuelling the growth of additive manufacturing in pharmaceutical market. Thus, companies operating in the additive manufacturing in pharmaceutical market are adopting several strategies, including agreements, market expansion to enhance their business. These strategic decisions by the market players helped them to attain a lucrative growth even during the COVID-19 pandemic. CONCLUSION As the pandemic of COVID-19 has resulted in several restrictions throughout the borders but still manufacturers of additive manufacturing in pharmaceutical are able to manage their stocks. The demand and supply of pharmaceutical products increased rapidly due to given medical emergency. Drug shortage caused due to the pandemic is expected to remain limited this way for a short period, also if the pandemic exceeds the shortage of pharmaceutical APIs, chemicals and additives may persist on causing shortage of supply in long run. This would also effect complications in distribution especially due to population movement restrictions across the globe. Various manufacturers are continuously engaging in constantly monitoring the supply chain so as to attain a lucrative growth. The activities and certain changes from COVID-19 would reduce dependency of private pharmaceuticals on alone suppliers such as China.

Significant Impact of COVID-19 on PPE Kits in Healthcare Industry
COVID-19 Impact on PPE Kits in Healthcare Industry Personal protective equipment is commonly referred to as "PPE." PPE is a worn equipment which helps to minimize exposure to hazards from the workplace illnesses and injuries. These injuries may result from contact with radiological, physical, chemical, mechanical, electrical, mechanical, or other workplace hazards. PPE includes the items such as safety glasses, gloves and shoes, earplugs or muffs, respirators, or coveralls, hard hats, and full body cover suits. Choosing the right PPE helps to reduce the exposure to hazards and is essential to laboratory safety. SHORTAGE OF PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT ENDANGERING HEALTH WORKERS WORLDWIDE The World Health Organization has warned that extreme and mounting disruption to the worldwide delivery of personal protective equipment (PPE) – resulting from growing demand, panic buying, hoarding, and misuse – is placing lives at chance from the brand new coronavirus and different infectious diseases. Healthcare employees rely upon private shielding systems to shield themselves from being infected. However, shortages are leaving doctors, nurses, and different frontline employees dangerously ill-prepared to take care of COVID-19 sufferers,. Industry and governments have to act speedily to reinforce delivery, ease export regulations, and positioned measures in vicinity to prevent hypothesis and hoarding. “We can’t prevent COVID-19 without defensive medical examiners first” stated WHO Director-General Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. IMPACT OF COVID-19 ON PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT The current coronavirus disease outbreak (COVID-19) has spread worldwide. All COVID-19-affected countries throughout the world are taking containment measures and doing their utmost to combat the disease in order to prevent it from spreading further and to limit death. In the early discovery of cases, contact tracing, and treatment of patients, the public health workforce and healthcare workers in clinical settings play a critical role. In order to combat any infectious disease in a crisis, healthcare practitioners and public health workers must have access to personal protective equipment (PPE) and utilize it consistently and correctly. As the COVID-19 pandemic spreads across the globe, the demand for personal protective equipment has skyrocketed. Many nations, including India, have experienced a temporary scarcity of PPE due to the pandemic's rapid spread. The absence of personal protective equipment (PPE) has harmed the morale of healthcare workers (HCWs) and other frontline troops fighting the coronavirus epidemic, which has afflicted over 22,000 health workers in 56 nations. Some have succumbed to it in countries all over the world, including India (WHO).. Moreover, an increase in the potentially infectious patients seeking testing and care accelerates the COVID-19 pandemic all over the world. Spread of COVID infection all over the world is generating the demand for PPE kits such has like face masks, gloves, goggles, air-purifying respirators, respirators face shields, and gowns among health care employees. As a result of shortage in all kinds of PPE, developed high demand across the globe. For instance · United Nations Children's Fund plays an important role in the delivery of PPE. The fund shipped more than 653.4 million items of PPE in 140 countries. CONCLUSION The spread of the novel coronavirus has triggered significant market damage across the world. Most businesses have stopped immediately, and the effect of the pandemic has been on all industries. The towns were closed down, and social distancing has become a modern norm. Government along with the private sector can play a vital role in reviving the sector. The government is providing financing assistance for needs arising from COVID-19; the private sector can take care of large investments and expertise required in developing countries. Apart from this, strong engagement with governments and local stakeholders will continue to contribute significantly to the development of the sector. In the starting days of pandemic, drastically boots the demand of personal protective equipment all over the globe. The use of personal protective equipment “specially medical masks” has become more popular in the world and also other PPE such has gloves, face shields, gowns, googles and other items have experienced rise in the demand among essential workers and frontline health care employees. Companies are making the strategic action to increase the supply to meet the demand of personal protective equipment in the market. Government has also introduced many polices and initiatives which would help manufactures to maintain in stable growth in current dynamic situation.
10 Ways to Increase Your Sales by Tapping into the Sharing Economy
Many people are hesitant to use the sharing economy because they feel like it is too much work. This may be true if you try to start a business from scratch, but there are many ways to tap into this growing industry without starting your own company.  Here are ten strategies that will help increase your sales by tapping into the sharing economy! 1. Offer a free trial for customers to share your product with their friends. Most consumers don’t want to try a new product on their own, but if they can get it from a friend at no cost or risk, they will most likely be willing to give the product a go. You could offer your products for free for 30 days and include an option in your package that allows customers to add another one of their friends onto the subscription. This gives them an incentive not only to share with their friends but also decreases the chance that you won’t make any money because sometimes people forget about things when there is no deadline! 2. Build partnerships with other companies that offer sharing services. You can also increase your sales by tapping into the sharing economy if you build partnerships with companies that offer similar services. For example, Uber has an affiliate program where they partner with local businesses to create discounts for their customers who are using Uber to get around town. If a customer is taking an Uber ride and comes across one of these promotions, it may encourage them to try out other products or services provided through partnering companies like Amazon or iTunes, which will bring additional revenue! 3. Create an app that includes all of the features you offer. Some people may not want to pay for your product or service but might be willing to trade if they can use the app instead. This is a great way to make money off of free apps by including advertisements on them! You don’t have to build an entire website if you are trying to increase sales. Just create an app that has all of your features/products listed and includes ads throughout it. If someone finds one of your products interesting enough, they will most likely double-tap, which brings revenue directly into your pocket! 4. Provide free shipping. Another idea for increasing your sales is to offer free shipping. This may not be the best method if you are trying to compete with big-box stores, but it works well when offering a product that would normally have high shipping fees associated with it! People are willing to pay more money just so they don’t have to deal with additional expenses at checkout. If you can implement these strategies into your business, I guarantee you will experience increased profits due in part to tapping into the sharing economy without having any of the drawbacks which scare away most businesses! 5. Make your website easy to use. Another great way to increase sales without having high costs is by making your website/product very user-friendly! Websites that are difficult or confusing will scare away potential customers, but websites that make it simple for users can get lots of traffic quickly and begin generating revenue in a short amount of time. If you notice any areas on your site where customers may become confused, be sure to fix them immediately, so you don’t lose out on the chance of getting new visitors through word-of-mouth advertising! 6. Get your product in front of influencers. By tapping into the sharing economy, you can get more exposure for your brand by having it seen on social media or other websites! If an influencer uses a service that is similar to yours but may not be as well known, they could gain new customers, which will increase sales and bring revenue back into their company’s pockets! Influencers have a huge audience, so this tactic works best when paired with another strategy, such as offering free shipping because if enough people see the post, then some might click through even if they don’t buy anything at first just due to curiosity. This also helps companies tap into new markets without spending too much time researching them individually since many consumers follow popular trends/influencers on social media! 7. Don’t forget to advertise. Another great way to increase your sales is by advertising! This doesn’t always work depending on what industry you are in and how well known your brand is, but there are some industries, such as fashion, where this works very well because people will see the advertisement and think, “I need that!” It’s basically a shortcut for word of mouth since it can be difficult getting attention through other means when starting out in business. All you have to do is figure out which type of advertisements would best suit your company, then create them or hire someone else who knows what they’re doing, so customers pay more attention instead of scrolling past ads with ease. 8. Utilize social media. Utilizing social media is another effective way to increase sales which helps companies tap into the sharing economy without spending money on advertisements (although they may still pay for them if they choose). If your product or service gets enough exposure through influencers, it can be very easy to gain new customers simply due to word-of-mouth advertising! Just make sure that you are posting regularly and tagging/sharing other brands who might share similar interests with your target audience, so people see what you’re up to! This not only brings in more revenue but also builds relationships with like-minded individuals who could help provide future support as well, so there’s no downside at all when using this strategy correctly. 9. Raise your prices. One of the best ways to increase sales is by raising your prices! This works very well for companies who tap into the sharing economy because you can charge more money while still maintaining a competitive price point due to a lack of overhead costs like other businesses. The only drawback would be if customers decide not to buy at higher rates after all which could lead to an initial drop in revenue, but this should smooth out quickly once word gets around that they are charging more money than before, so people begin buying again and eventually it will balance out just fine! 10. Improve your product or service. Another great way to increase sales is by improving your product or service! If you notice that customers are leaving reviews for things they don’t like about the company, then take the time to figure out how it can be fixed, so people no longer have any complaints and start buying again. Once this happens, word will spread quickly throughout all social media platforms, which means more revenue within a short amount of time! Just remember to keep an eye on what changes need to be made in order for this tactic to work since there’s nothing worse than fixing one thing only to break another aspect of the performance/experience, making everything go downhill once more. Conclusion: There are many ways to increase sales, and each of these tactics can be used together or separately depending on the situation. Just remember that you should always test out different options first before committing because it’s not smart sinking a lot of money into something without knowing how it will turn out! Once you find what works best for your company, keep doing those things, so revenue continues increasing over time without any problems along the way. if you like this article check also this : 10 ways to increase your search engine ranking without using google In this blog post, we will discuss 10 ways to increase your search engine ranking without using google.

How COVID-19 Impacted on Automated Cell Cultures in Healthcare Industry ?
COVID-19 Impact on Automated Cell Cultures in Healthcare Industry The economy and businesses across the world have been influenced greatly because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The COVID-19 has spread globally in unprecedented ways due to its high infectious and contagious nature and lack of vaccine. The World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19 as a pandemic due to its increased spread across the globe. According to the situation report of 7th June 2021 by WHO, 174 million corona cases had been reported globally and 3.7 million patients died due to the coronavirus. On a slightly positive note, a total of 157 million people have recovered, and 1.9 million vaccine doses have been administered. Cell culture refers to removing cells from an animal or plant and their subsequent growth in a favorable artificial environment. Automated cell culture systems are instruments that mechanically carry out the steps involved in growing and maintaining a cell culture useful in any lab that works with cell biology, cell signaling, protein expression, or drug discovery. An automated cell culture system helps to grow cell cultures while saving labor time and reducing errors. Increasing demand for cell culture technology in vaccine production and wide acceptance of cell culture techniques in various applications accelerate the market growth. However, the high cost of automated cell culture systems and lack of skilled and certified professionals are expected to obstruct the market growth. COVID-19 pandemic created problems for many drug, clinical, medical equipment, and device manufacturing companies, including market players that provided automated cell culture products & services. Though, different kind of policies has been adopted by different companies across the globe for carrying forward the manufacturing processes. PRICE IMPACT COVID-19 claimed a considerable number of lives worldwide, which is a concern in countries with high patient co-payments and an appreciable number of families going into poverty when members become ill. Consequently, there is a need to review prices and availability of pharmaceutical products during the COVID-19 pandemic to provide future direction. The pandemic has impacted on utilization and prices of pertinent medicines and products but moderated by increased scrutiny. Key stakeholder groups can play a role in enhancing evidence-based approaches and reducing inappropriate purchasing in the future. For instance; • The Price of BACTEC FX-40 Automated Blood Culture System manufactured by BD is USD 10,608.08 • The price of Gibco HEPES, a reagent used in cell culture manufactured by Thermo Fisher Scientific, is USD 30.90 Product cost is the major setback for the market as it is expected to decrease the demand due to high costs. As the instruments and consumables related products such as cell counters, reagents, and buffers have high prices, the cost of automated cell cultures can impact the market. IMPACT ON DEMAND Today, most biotechnology products are primarily dependent on the mass culturing of cell lines. Cell cultures have found applications in diverse areas and serve as a model system for numerous research efforts. An increase in funding from the government for cell-based research is significantly triggering the growth of the market. In addition, cell culture techniques are widely used as an alternative to current egg-based strategies for developing cell-based vaccines. Thus, cell culture technology has been widely used in developing U.S. -licensed vaccines such as vaccines against rubella, smallpox, chickenpox, hepatitis, rotavirus, and polio. For instance, • Over the last month and a half, the Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology has established stable cultures of COVID-19 causing coronavirus. The lab's ability to culture the virus enables CCMB to develop vaccines and test potential drugs to fight COVID-19. As observed, because of the current COVID-19 situation, the demand for automated cell culture services gradually increased due to the wide acceptance of cell culture techniques in various applications and growth in the biotechnology sector. This shows that various initiatives taken by organizations and market players are helping to tackle this COVID-19 situation as products are made available, and the situation is likely to get better in the future. IMPACT ON SUPPLY CHAIN Lockdown policies in different countries have resulted in the closing of product providers, decreasing walk-in customers to prevent the spread of the disease. This led to a significant delay in the supply of the product. Also, during the lockdown period, the market for online delivery of products has seen a rise, which is normal considering the situation. The companies dealing in the automated cell culture worldwide have taken strategic steps to supply products to people across the world properly. The Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic triggered unprecedented increased demand for some clinical devices, as well as significant disruptions to global medical and clinical device manufacturing and supply chain operations. The FDA is monitoring the medical and clinical product supply chain and working closely with manufacturers and other stakeholders to evaluate the risk of disruptions and prevent or reduce their impact on patients, health care providers, and the public's health at large. For instance, · On March 27th 2020, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) was signed into law. The CARES Act added Section 506J to the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act). It provided the FDA—for the first time—with new authority intended to help prevent or mitigate negative public health impacts of medical device supply chain disruptions “during, or in advance of, a public health emergency declared by the Secretary under section 319 of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act.” The FDA issued an immediately in effect guidance, Notifying CDRH of a Permanent Discontinuance or Interruption in Manufacturing of a Device Under Section 506J of the FD&C Act During the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency: Guidance for Industry and Food and Drug Administration Staff. This guidance is intended to assist manufacturers in providing the FDA timely, informative notifications about changes in the production of certain medical devices that will help the Agency prevent or mitigate shortages of such devices during the COVID-19 public health emergency. · In April 2020, according to Indian Drug Manufacturers Association (IDMA), Vice-Chairman, T Sathish, the pharma sector in the country has been hit by a shortage of workforce, packaging materials, and transport the COVID-19 lockdown. This has led to a shortage of product packaging materials and has made matters worse for the pharmaceutical companies. He urged the government to permit the supporting industry to function to ensure that the supply chain was not disrupted. This shows that even if the COVID-19 situation disrupts the supply chain of products, the initiatives taken by the government and different companies create hope for the proper supply and use of products available. STRATEGIC DECISIONS FOR MANUFACTURERS COVID-19 might have hampered the supply and use of products, but it also allows companies to improve their business by different means. As a pharmaceutical company always does, it tends to find newer and better ways to treat a disease; the same is true with automated cell culture services and products. Always bringing out better solutions in the market will increase their business efficiency. For instance, · In 2020, in the U.S., the companies with direct exposure to COVID-19 outbreak were taking several actions, including transporting available inventory to areas away from quarantine zones and near ports where it can be accessed for shipping, buying ahead to procure inventory and raw material that are in short supply in impacted areas, activating pre-approved raw material substitutions in places where the primary supplier is impacted. However, a secondary supplier is not updating customers about delays and adjusting customer allocations to optimize profits on near-term revenue or to meet contractual terms and shaping demand by offering a discount on the available inventory in cases where supply may be short for late winter-early spring fulfillment optimizing near-term revenue. This signifies that despite this COVID-19 situation, the companies make different strategic decisions that will make their business grow at least back to pre-pandemic levels. CONCLUSION Pandemic has taken a toll on every aspect of life, including the global economy. With the significant downfalls in many sectors, a collaborative effort of government, industry players, and consumers can win the fight against COVID-19. The first wave had already inflicted severe blows to the population and economy. The currently experiencing the second wave and expected the third wave is likely to be more disastrous to the masses and healthcare markets. As this pandemic situation has resulted in many restrictions in different places around the world, the market players dealing in automated cell culture services and products were still able to manage their stock. Different companies were finding out their way to deal with this pandemic situation. The government and companies around the globe are working together and have issued advice for those who are undergoing treatment during these unprecedented times during COVID-19 lockdown around the world. The supply chain was destroyed, but several steps were taken by the government and companies, which will help them get their needed output for the products. By increasing the material price, the companies can maintain their overall revenue. Thus, different companies dealing in automated cell culture services and products are finding out their ways to deal with this pandemic situation.
