Impact of COVID-19 on the Field Mobility Solutions Market
Due to the government-imposed lockdown and poor demand from the electronics and automotive industries, the market for field mobility declined in 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic stopped the manufacturing of a number of products in the automobile sector, especially because major nations throughout the world were placed on long-term lockdowns. The market for field mobility was considerably affected by this. Equipment and machinery sales were negatively impacted by COVID-19, which also had an adverse effect on the market expansion. Large manufacturing nations like the U.S., Germany, Italy, the UK, and China, which were adversely impacted by the spread of the coronavirus, historically accounted for the majority of the demand. Additionally, the key players started focusing on investments that could aid them in generating operating revenues. The number of developments such as product launches and related developments in the field mobility market in 2020 reduced. However, in many end-user verticals, such as healthcare, consumer electronics, industrial and automotive sector, field mobility solutions are being adopted at an accelerated rate.
