What is the Covid-19 Impact on the Global Heat Shrink Tube Market?

All types of business in the electrical and electronics segment was hit hard during the pandemic years. After the outbreak of Covid-19, all the ongoing construction activities were halted abruptly, which had a severe adverse effect on the sale and consumption of every type of electrical equipment and accessories, including wire shrink wrap tubing materials.

The major downturn in the global heat shrink tube market was instigated due to the ceasing of infrastructure construction and electrical works. There were also some supply constraints of raw materials required for manufacturing of electrical shrink wraps such as polymers, stabilizers and others that reduced the production capacity of market players.

After the Covid-19 restrictions were over, national and regional governments of every nation are investing in infrastructure establishment that is comparatively higher than the pre-pandemic years. The construction of public buildings and telecommunications systems is expected to drive the global heat-shrink tubing market at a positive growth rate.
