Countries in North America, especially the US, are adversely affected due to the COVID-19 outbreak.The region has the presence of a few key markets for rugged phones such as the US and Canada.

In these countries, adoption of advanced communication solutions and investments in industrial and public safety sectors are quite high owing to the huge presence of key technology providers, rugged phone companies, telecommunication companies, and network service operators.Hence, North America is one of the most important regions for the growth of the rugged phones market owing to the presence of huge industrial sector and high investments in research and development activities related to smartphones.

Hence, any hindrance on the economic growth of the region hampers the growth of the market.Due to COVID-19 outbreak, the region is witnessing decline in telecom infrastructure development activities, temporary shutdown of businesses, disruptions in supply chain and manufacturing activities, and impact on sales & marketing activities of rugged phone companies operating in the region.

Based on type, the semi-rugged segment led the North America rugged phones market in 2019.Semi-rugged phones are capable of handling rougher treatment than a consumer-grade handheld; however, they are still not dustproof or waterproof completely.

In addition, few semi-rugged handhelds also fulfill some MIL-STD-810F standards, although not for immersion or dust.
