The coronavirus outbreak hampered the explosion proof mobile devices market in 2020. The World Health Organization (WHO) declared a public health emergency after the COVID-19 virus spread in December 2019. The disease spread to over 100 nations and resulted in mass deaths globally. Exports & imports, global manufacturing, tourism, and financial sectors, were impeded by the disease.

Manufacturers of explosion proof mobile devices were affected during the pandemic, due to restrictions and the closure of global industries. Import and export facilities were restrained due to transport restrictions. The pandemic led to disruptions in the supply chain, exports, large-scale manufacturing, transportation, and the closure of manufacturing plants.

This, in turn, hampered the market. Demand for explosion proof mobile devices decreased during the pandemic, due to the closure of manufacturing units during the lockdown. This, in turn, impeded the market. Furthermore, governments imposed various restrictions on trade and commerce, which affected various sectors negatively. governments of various countries-imposed lockdowns, thereby hampering the market.
