Impact of COVID-19 On The Global Benzene Market

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the world witnessed one of the worst recessions since WW2. The global Benzene market has also been brutally impacted by the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic. Several governments around the world imposed rigorous lockdowns thus vividly hampering the building and construction, transportation, textiles, electrical, and electronics industries, which are the most important end-user industries for the benzene market. All this resulted in substantial sales drops of aromatic products, consumer appliances, electronic components, apparels and others, which significantly reduced the demand for benzene. Nevertheless, with the improving market circumstances in the post covid era, the growth of the benzene market is likely to recover during the forecast period.
