This month we look at the effect that Covid-19 is having on the wire and cable supply chain and the industry in general.

Between March 9 to March 27 CRU ran a survey to find out how different parts of the wire and cable supply chain have been affected by Covid-19. This by no means is a comprehensive or accurate picture of the overall effect of Covid-19 on production or logistics but provides a small insight into what is going on in the supply chain. The survey ran over a time where there was a huge change in the number of people infected globally and the actions taken by governments in various countries to slowdown the spread of the virus.
