Moreover, the imposition of lockdown also caused delays & suspension of major construction projects, which negatively influenced the growth of the paint additives market. Additionally, with disruptions in the global trade system, the pandemic also impacted the import & export of paint additives across Saudi Arabia. However, with the upliftment of lockdown, all construction projects resumed, and manufacturing units have reopened with safety measures, which shall propel the Saudi Arabia Paint Additives Market in the coming years.
