The ongoing COVID-19 outbreak has adversely affected the display industry with manufacturing operations temporarily suspended across major manufacturing hubs, leading to a substantial slowdown in the production. Major manufacturers including Samsung, LG Display, and Xiaomi among others have suspended their manufacturing operations in China, India, South Korea, and European countries. In addition to having an impact on the production, the ongoing pandemic has taken a toll on the consumer demand for display integrated devices, likely exacerbated by the lockdown imposed across major countries. Uncertainty regarding the possible length of lockdown makes it difficult to anticipate how and when a resurgence in the display industry will occur. On the flip side, increased demand for displays in medical equipment including ventilators and respirators is expected to keep the demand for displays afloat in the coming months. The report will account for Covid19 as a key market contributor.
