Impact of COVID-19 on the Global User Interface Services Market
A user interface is an interactive platform that dictates how users may interact with applications. Companies are dependent on mobile applications and web applications, which has forced many enterprises to increase the efficiency of their user interfaces. The factors responsible for the growth of the market include the increasing adoption of tablets and smartphones, advancements in digital technology, and the rising demand for data controlling and monitoring applications. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a neutral impact on the user interface services market. The spread of the COVID-19 pandemic has forced governments across the globe to take precautionary measures to contain the spread of the virus. The closing down of manufacturing facilities, which has led to delays in the production of consumer electronic products such as tablets and smartphones, is responsible for the decline of the user interface services market. China is the largest hub for the production of raw materials that are used in the manufacture of consumer electronics products. The outbreak of COVID-19 in China has halted the export of raw materials and disrupted supply chain activities. More than 1000 multinational companies are planning to shift operations from China to other Southeastern countries. This shift has also impacted the growth of the market profoundly.
However, on the flip side, companies such as Google and Apple have released a sample code, user interface examples for COVID-19 exposure notification apps. The newly designed interface samples explain how the companies are planning to ensure proactive consent as well as how those notifications are expected to work in the practical terms. The designed interface shows the appearance of the specific alerts and tells users about when specific API calls should be made. These companies also announced the continuation of the updates released for the software development kits and the existing software before shipping the public version of the API to customers.
According to the MRF analysis, North America is estimated to dominate the market owing to the growing demand for information technology and the presence of a large number of market players in countries such as the U.S. and Canada. The increasing downloads of mobile and web applications, as well as the production of consumer electronics products, are likely to drive market growth over the forecast period.
