When COVID-19 hit, the world went into lockdown. Production of many products and components was stopped. But while factories all over the world closed, the demand grew. We started to do more online shopping, spent most of our time indoors, working from home and started renovating our homes all of which expanded the need for RAW MATERIALS. Supply and demand got out of balance.
On top of that, transportation was limited, harbors locked down, less containers shipped. Through air, COVID related products were prioritized.
