COVID-19 Impact Insights

The novel coronavirus pandemic has led to a major global economic downturn. Multiple industries are experiencing production cycle and supply chain disruptions due to government enforced lockdowns to contain the virus’s spread. Consequently, they are experiencing reduced profit and revenue margins.

With regard to food irradiation, sluggishness is anticipated to remain until the latter half of 2021. This is primarily because of a reduction in laboratory testing due to curbs on on-premises operations by agencies. However, this downturn is not expected to be severe, as testing is possible under remote conditions as well.

Furthermore, demand for clean-label and adulterant free foods has especially heightened since the pandemic’s onset, attributed to fears of contracting the coronavirus through the ingestion of contaminated foodstuffs. This is expected to sustain demand for food irradiating tests throughout the duration of the pandemic.
