The impact of COVID-19 pandemic can be felt across the chemical industry. The growing inability in the production and manufacturing processes, in the light of the self-quarantined workforce has caused a major disruption in the supply chain across the sector. Restrictions encouraged by this pandemic are obstructing the production of essentials such as life-saving drugs.
The nature of operation in chemical plants that cannot be easily stopped and started, makes the operational restrictions in these plants a serious concern for the industry leaders. Restricted and delayed shipments from China have created a price hike in the raw materials, affecting the core of the chemicals industry.

The slacking demand from different impacted industries such as automotive is negatively influencing the growth of the chemical industry. In light of the current crisis, the market leaders are focused to become self-reliant which is expected to benefit the economic growth of different economies in the longer term. Companies are triggering events to restructure and recover from the losses incurred during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Gallium is soft silvery metal and is liquid at room temperatures. During bauxite processing, caustic liquor is generated, gallium is extracted from this as a by-product in impure form. The impure form is further refined to get pure gallium known as 6N Gallium. In some cases it is recovered as by-product from zinc processing. It is generally used in compound form, either as gallium nitride (GaN) or gallium arsenide (GaAs). These two compounds accounts for the major consumption of gallium worldwide.
The market for gallium was mainly driven by the growing demand from electronics sector. Gallium is used majorly in LEDs, solar panels and photo detectors among others. Gallium is used in various applications such as LEDs, laser diodes, integrated circuits and solar cells among others. In addition, it is also used in research and development for specialty alloys. The major opportunity for the market is the growing electronics industry in China and India. However, the volatile prices of gallium are likely to act as restraint for the market in near future. Moreover, there are numerous recycling issues associated with gallium compounds used in various electronic products.
