The electronic industry experienced a dual impact from the coronavirus pandemic. While the sector grew due to increased consumer demand for electronic products, it also suffered setbacks due to supply chain disruptions and the closure of manufacturing plants, resulting in decreased production. Asia emerged as the only region displaying resilience in the face of pandemic-related challenges. Notably, China is the largest global market, generating over two trillion U.S. dollars in revenue in 2021.
