COVID-19 Impact Manufactures and Supply Chain

The rampant onset of COVID-19 has meant a near global shut down for manufacturing firms as well as a sharp and aggressive jolt to demand. The necessary closures, on health and financial grounds are widely accepted as appropriate responses to the global health crisis. Manufacturing firms must now plot a course through very uncertain times and the unfortunate truth is that even with government support, many firms won’t make it to the end of the year.

Even the largest manufacturers are not immune to risk. Samsung and Ericsson have both shut down operations in the wake of employees testing positive for the coronavirus. Although experts claim that the impact should not be too significant to Samsung, that there is a much more real threat to mid-sized firms and their supply chains.
