Impact of Covid-19 on the Middle East Specialty Chemicals Market

The advent of Covid-19 in 2020 had a decelerating impact on the Middle East Specialty Chemicals Market. Hindrance in cross-border trade resulted in the unavailability of raw materials, lack of labor, increased demand & supply gaps, and shutdown of production units, which caused massive financial losses for the leading market players. The severely hampered transportation & logistics led to delays in deliveries of pre-produced chemicals.

However, with the gradual improvement in the pandemic situation, governments of different countries in the region uplifted the restrictions. It, in turn, encouraged the leading players to introduce new products and increase their production capacities to meet the burgeoning demand for specialty chemicals, expand the visibility in the region, and offer an extensive range of chemicals for customers.
