The suspension of manufacturing operations in several industrial sectors has resulted in a slump in demand for silicon-coated fabric. Moreover, owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, the demand from the manufacturing sector had slumped sharply in 2020. However, during the pandemic period, the demand for silicone fabric in the medical and healthcare sector was increased due to the construction of temporary medical facilities, and rising awareness which, in turn, support to marginal offset the decline in demand.
