Impact of Covid-19 Pandemic

The pandemic caused changes in consumer tastes and industry demands, which in turn caused changes in the market demand patterns for products made of plastic. Lockdowns and traffic restrictions caused delays or cancellations in commercial construction projects. The market for plastic lumber products used in commercial applications, like decking and railing, was directly impacted by this. Price swings for raw materials were caused by economic uncertainty, which affected the total cost of producing plastic lumber. Managing production and operational costs was challenging for manufacturers. Construction projects experience delays due to labour interruptions and economic uncertainties. The slowdown in the building sector has an impact on the market for plastic timber products.
