Rapid Technological Development - Technology is expected to be a continued driver of market growth during this period. Industries that involve technology, such as this one, benefited from this trend during this period. For example, technologies such as "Green Tires," where 20-30% of a vehicle's fuel consumption is related to tire performance, took off during this period. Green Tires offer wet grip, durability and low rolling resistance, reducing fuel consumption by 5-7%. Thus, technological advances which enabled improved performance, reduced fuel consumption contributed to the market growth.
Corona virus Pandemic - The outbreak of Corona virus disease (COVID-19) has acted as a massive restraint on the paper, plastics, rubber, wood and textile manufacturing market in 2022 as supply chains were disrupted due to trade restrictions and consumption declined due to lockdowns imposed by governments globally. COVID-19 is an infectious disease with flu-like symptoms including fever, cough, and difficulty in breathing. The virus was first identified in 2019 in Wuhan, Hubei province of the People's Republic of China and spread globally including Western Europe, North America and Asia.
