Impact of COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic had a debilitating impact on the global ecosystem. The pandemic led to a shutdown of production facilities, which do not come under essential goods which led to a negative impact on several markets. Hyperspectral imaging was negatively impacted since the pandemic led to a decline in the number of non-essential activities performed in the facilities and research centers, which subsequently impacted the adoption of hyperspectral imaging devices. Major players in the global hyperspectral imaging market faced disruptions in supply chains and the demand for products was also reduced substantially. However, this impact was offset by the continued R&D in the field of HSI along with newer research on how HSI could help detect COVID-19 more quickly and accurately.

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the hyperspectral imaging market is expected to be short term, and as the recovery phase of the pandemic is beginning the adoption rate for hyperspectral devices has started to resume, and increased demand for HSI is expected in the future due to unique and wide-spread benefits of the technology in the several industries.
