COVID-19 Impact

The global dicumyl peroxide market faced major disruptions and growth slowdown in the covid-19 outbreak. The dicumyl peroxide has rising demand in automotive, paints and coating, plastics, and other sectors. The automotive production and growth faced major disruptions in the pandemic. The factors such as transportation restrictions, production halts, workforce shortages, and others led to fall in the demand for automotive. Furthermore, the automotive vehicle production and distribution activities faced major delay, thereby creating major demand and supply chain disturbance. According to the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (OICA), the automotive production showed decline of 2% in China, 21% in Mexico, 19% in U.S.A, and 17% fall in Russia in the year 2020. The fall in growth for automotive sector in the pandemic led to decline in the application of dicumyl peroxide in rubber, plastics, and others. Thus, owing to major halt and decline in demand across various end-use industries, the global dicumyl peroxide industry experienced major slowdown in the outbreak.
