COVID-19 Impact on Decoy Flares Market

The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly affected the world, and it continues to shatter several countries. Until the outbreak, the aerospace industry was experiencing substantial growth in terms of production and services, despite huge backlogs from the aircraft manufacturers. However, the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in the reduction in the manufacturing volumes of aircraft per model, along with the receding of the production of various defense equipment, weaponry, and countermeasure products.

The decline in production volumes is majorly attributed to human movement restrictions, which led the aircraft and other defense product manufacturers to operate with a limited workforce. This has further slightly diminished the growth rate of the decoy flares market during Q1 and Q2 of 2020. However, most of the defense contracts are of a longer period, which has helped the contractors maintain their operational efficiency. Since the defense aircraft manufacturers continued their production with an aim to deliver the products to respective customers on-time, the demand for decoy flares continued to flow at a slower rate. However, disruptions in supply chain have also led to the decoy flare market revenue drop.
