COVID-19 posed several challenges for the ear speculum industry last year. Stringent lockdown restrictions led to the scarcity of raw materials, severely impacting the production and supply chain management of goods and services. The advent of the pandemic diverted the investment and funding towards the research and drug development of COVID-19, impacting the industry growth. Moreover, declining disposable incomes reduced the expenditure on non-essential treatment, causing growth disruptions to the ear speculum market.
However, with the diminishing impacts of the pandemic and the lockdown restrictions nearly over, the market may recover shortly and experience growth in the next few years.
