The global electronics devices market (including consumer electronics and industrial electronics devices) is expected to be impacted significantly by COVID-19 as China is one of the major suppliers for the raw materials (used to manufacture devices) as well as the finished products. The industry is on the brink of facing a reduction in production, disruption in supply, and price fluctuations. While this can vastly encourage local manufacturers to step up and address the growing demand, the scarcity of raw material can still pose a challenge to this industry. The sales of prominent electronic companies is expected to be affected in the near future. The report will account for Covid19 as a key market contributor.
