Impact of Covid-19 on the Global Advanced Rockets & Missiles Propulsion System Market

With the advent of Covid-19 in 2020, several industries worldwide observed a decelerating effect, and the Global Advanced Rocket & Missiles Propulsion System Market was no exception. Since the advent of the global crisis, the defense industry has observed unprecedented challenges, where several countries cut short their defense budgets to address critical issues associated with the dreadful disease & curb its spread.

While the governments of most countries imposed stringent movement restrictions & lockdowns, a majority of manufacturing industries had to shut their operations. Additionally, reduced funding, severely disrupted supply chain of raw materials, delayed deliveries of pre-produced goods, and a temporary halt on several R&Ds in testing rockets & missile technologies were the new challenges introduced to the market. Besides, the funding toward the defense industry was also affected since most countries were focused on restraining the spread of the virus & strengthening the healthcare infrastructure.

However, with the gradual improvement in the pandemic situation displaying a swiftly reducing number of cases, the governments uplifted the restrictions since 2021 and allowed the recommencement of business operations. As a result, the market revived with a flowing supply chain & resumed research & development activities. Moreover, several leading players in the market are immensely investing in introducing new technologies, which would enable the market to regain its usual pace & recover from financial loss over the forecast years.
