COVID 19 Analysis

The arrival of the COVID-19 has had a severe impact on every country’s GDP on the international map. The nationwide imposed lockdowns followed by the shutdown of non-essential industries have resulted and caused a downfall in the global economy. The falling demand from the customers located worldwide has led the world into a global recession. Also, the total recovery for the markets is not expected shortly. Many ongoing construction projects and activities, including the government infrastructure projects, which were initially running, came to a complete halt due to the imposition of temporary and permanent lockdowns. The construction industry and inclusive of many others are understood as labor-intensive. Mass unemployment in the construction industry has led to widespread panic. This is leading the laborers to return to their homelands and be set free during the pandemic.

Even after the easing of lockdowns restrictions by global governments in several countries, the functional construction companies are likely to work with reduced finances, labor, and working hours, which is likely to further going to delay project deliveries. It is estimated that initially, the ongoing government projects will resume their operations. However, with the rising constraint of budgeted revenue, it is likely to be difficult for even the government to finance the big projects for the rest of the year. The impact of the slowdown and lockdown of the construction industry was felt by the ceramic tiles industry as well. Apart from the global shutdown of production facilities, there has been a cancellation of several projects in the commercial and industrial construction sector that is likely to lead to the reduced demand for ceramic tiles in 2020.
