Impact of Covid-19 on the Global Millimeter Wave Technology Market 

The Covid-19 pandemic in 2020 crippled the entire world. Nearly all countries across the globe imposed lockdowns & social distancing measures, which adversely affected most industries, caused delays in 5G deployment, and negatively impacted the Global Millimeter Wave Technology Market.

The imposition of lockdown also led to the shutdown of Electronics manufacturing units and disrupted the supply chain of the semiconductor market by creating shortages of components & finished goods. It led to the disturbance in business continuity that further affected the millimeter wave technology market. For instance:

  • Most 5G network operators are dependent on equipment from Huawei, Nokia, & Ericsson. The supply chain for 5G New Radio has been adversely affected, primarily since most 5G radio units & active antennas are manufactured in China.

However, despite the economic slowdowns, the demand for 5G is continuously increasing in the healthcare & manufacturing sectors, the millimeter wave technology market is expected to rise significantly in the years to come.
