Impact of Covid-19 on the Global Light Control Switch Market
· The manufacturing of light control switches was stopped for a specific period of time due to high peak of covid-19 situation which led to highly impact the sales of light control switches.

· Sales of light control switches is directly proportional to construction. Construction has been negatively impacted amid the lockdown imposed due to the COVID-19 outbreak and recorded a huge decline in sale of light control switches in 2020, which also led to decline in sale of light control switches.

· The spread of the coronavirus had a severe impact on global economy through declines in exports, output, demand from overseas tourists and private use. The major exporter of electronic items and decrease in demand for electronics led to decline in demand for light control switches and shows a huge decline in the market.

· COVID-19 impacted almost all industries by hindering various industrial operations and disrupting the supply chain. Maximum companies halted their operation due to less workforce. However, there is a sluggish decline in the global light control switches market due to impact of COVID-19.

· The electronic industry acquired a significant share in terms of consumption of light control switches in global. Attributed to the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic, the demand for electronic item has increased due to increase in work from home culture, which in turn increase the demand for light control switches also.

· Furthermore, import and export activities were significantly impacted, which, in turn, adversely affected the industries using light control switches and thereby affecting the global light control switches market.

· According to the UNIDO, 30.0%–70.0% of pre-COVID-19 workforce of various industries, such as electrical and other third-party vendors migrated to their hometowns, due to uncertainties and loss of income during the lockdown. This unavailability or less availability of workforce is expected to directly affect the production and manufacturing activities, thereby resulting in decline in demand for raw materials used in light control switches. This is expected to decline the growth of the market during the forecast period.

· After the reopening of lockdown, people are avoiding to touch physical things which led to increase the demand of smart switches. However, after lockdown it shows positive impact on sales on wireless and highly automated light control switches.
