However, the ongoing outbreak pandemic is hindering the growth of various industries in APAC.The lockdown and reduced capacity of various plants/factories in major APAC countries are adversely affecting the supply and demand balance; thus, disrupting the manufacturing activities, delivery schedules, and various products demand in the region.
