COVID-19 Impact on API Market

After the Covid-19 outbreak, demand for APIs decreased. The pandemic has contributed to a decline in the influx of patients to hospitals and doctor’s chambers.

However, this is projected to have a temporary impact and the sector is supposed to have a rebound with the stabilization of the economy.
