COVID-19 Results in Temporary Shutdown of Production across

To contain the spread of the novel coronavirus, the global
government agencies have announced a lockdown that has led to the complete halt
of operational and production activities. Owing to strict regulations to follow
social distancing and avoid contact, several industries such as packaging, food
& beverage, and automotive, among others are experiencing unprecedented
economic loss that is anticipated to hinder the market growth to some extent.
However, supportive initiatives by the government to work with minimal
workforce and adhere to strict social distancing to resume partial operations
are expected to positively impact the market growth in the near future. 

Nylon is a type of polymer that is produced by the reaction
between carbon-based chemicals that are usually found in petroleum and coal
under high pressure. It is widely adopted to manufacture plastic machine parts
and electronics owing to its high tensile strength, non-conductivity, heat
resistance, and low-cost properties. Additionally, it is used for manufacturing
bolts, screws, nuts, and washers in the automotive industry across the globe.
