At the onset of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, many believed the only issue facing the displays market would be supply chain constraints in China, which would soon normalize and disappear. However, the coronavirus is now categorized as a global pandemic, with the number of reported cases showing no signs of slowing in the immediate future. As the number of cases in China enters a stabilization phase, the severity of the outbreak has multiplied in other parts of the world, causing an increase in global digital signage demand and supply chain issues toward the end of the first quarter.
