Covid-19 Analysis


With the continuous spread of the novel coronavirus across the world, automakers took extreme measures in the form of plant closures to halt the spread of COVID-19. The situation remained uncertain as more European companies suspended work activities, and the US and APAC companies had extended shutdown periods. The technology company’s plans for North American production are an effort to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus. In the US and Canada, the response of governments has been a combination of state or provincial, federal, and local measures. In other regions, the countries' governments did apply seemingly ever-more stringent conditions on social interaction, travel, and workplace attendance. These regions also experienced similar situations, which are having a marked effect on the economy as well as society and causing massive economic disruption, with the alarm industry at the center of this turmoil.


The regional impacts of the pandemic outbreak are highly variable, but as it spreads, the status in the harder-hit areas provides a glimpse of what may be witnessed soon. China saw a significant drop in manufacturing output in February 2020. As a result, Chinese alarm manufacturers have petitioned the government to stimulate the market through subsidies, tax breaks, and temporary reductions in emissions requirements. The initial epicenter of the global outbreak is Hubei province, which is one of the key regions of surveillance systems production in China. Utilization within manufacturing plants in Hubei remains far below capacity, with many plants fully shut down, and the recovery process also did require a few months to get back on track, post the outbreak.


Restrictions to shipping and industrial production did affect multiple supply chains. Distribution of components is the key process in manufacturing industries, which faced challenges such as staffing of warehouses, a need for direct distribution, and more intelligent and responsive allocation across channels due to the pandemic which led to pressure on supply chains. The impact on the US and Europe from the disruptions was significant, which had a huge effect on the world economy and badly disrupt global supply chains.


Burglar Alarm Market Opportunity




  • Smartphone and handheld device based security systems




Every day, wireless communication is becoming more prevalent. In response to this, consumers have been using mobile phones for remote control of household appliances and for receiving feedback from the alarm system by SMS about the house’s safety and security. Due to advancements in technology, end users can now control different household appliances remotely through text messages and monitor the security and safety of their homes just by sending a message. In places where the user needs to control the ON and OFF switching of devices, this controller is extremely useful, since there is no need for a wired connection between the switch and any home appliance. As a result, the microcontroller would control the home appliances based on the information it received and send feedback in the event of a security breach, a gas leak, or a fire. An android application allows users to control the proposed solution from their mobile phones via an easy-to-use, secure, and robust process.


With a home automation and security system using GSM and Android applications, a message will be sent to the house owner's mobile phone whenever someone attempts to enter the house, informing him about the presence of someone inside, so he can take preventative measures to prevent the burglar from entering the house. By using this system, users can also protect their homes from burglars while they are away from home by using an alarm. An alarm will start ringing whenever someone tries to enter the house, and the owner will be notified if any other people attempt to enter the house through his mobile phone. In addition, this system is used to display the number of people entering the house on an LCD screen.


Burglar Alarm Market Segment Insights


Burglar Alarm System & Hardware Insights
