Industries like chemicals, dyes and pigments, pharmaceuticals, textiles, electronics and auto could witness short-term supply disruptions due to the production shutdown in China. In turn, the reduced economic activity could result in a slowdown in bulk consumption and this could indirectly affect bulk imports like coal, crude and other commodities, said K Ravichandran, Senior VP and Group Head, ICRA Ratings, in a report on the impact of coronavirus on Indian ports. The extent of the impact will be dependent of the duration of restriction on China’s industrial activities due to Covid-19 and the pace of subsequent recovery.
