COVID-19 had a major influence on the welding helmet industry. Several countries' factories were forced to close during the early stages of the pandemic as governments imposed strict lockdowns to prevent the epidemic from spreading. Welding material producers were able to resume factory operations after the lockout was lifted and restrictions were relaxed, but only in a restricted capacity and subject to several rules and regulations. The demand for welding helmets has also decreased, as the bulk of it is tied to end-use industries, which are also having difficulty operating during the pandemic. Owing to the imposition of lockdowns, many development projects, and programs, including government infrastructure projects, which were previously underway came to a complete halt. Construction, like many other industries, is labour-intensive. The construction industry's mass unemployment sparked widespread fear, prompting workers to flee to their homelands to wait out the pandemic. Despite the easing of restrictions in several countries, construction firms are still operating on tight budgets, manpower, and work hours. The welding helmet industry was affected by the building industry's downturn as well. Aside from the closure of manufacturing facilities, several projects in the commercial and industrial construction sectors were cancelled in 2020, reducing demand for welding helmets.
