COVID-19 Impact Analysis

Covid-19 pandemic has impacted all the sectors across the globe.However, it fails to leave any evident dent on the demand forinsulin. The demand remained steady during the initial period andis likely to continue the same in the years to come. However, thepandemic has disrupted the supply chain of materials required formanufacturing insulin to some extent due to stringent lockdownrestrictions across the globe. The lockdown has hampered thesmoothness of raw material transport to the manufacturing facility,which, in turn, has created pressure on the available resources tomeet the increasing demand for the products. Most of the playersbased in the European and Asia Pacific region faced littledifficulty in accessing the raw materials due to the ban on theimport and export activities to reduce the spread of infection. Asa result, the manufacturers had to purchase the required materialfrom the local providers at inflated prices
