The outbreak of Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has acted as a massive restraint on the mineral products market in 2020 as supply chains were disrupted due to trade restrictions and consumption declined due to lockdowns imposed by governments globally. COVID 19 is an infectious disease with flu-like symptoms including fever, cough, and difficulty in breathing. The virus was first identified in 2019 in Wuhan, Hubei province of the People's Republic of China and spread globally including Western Europe, North America and Asia. Manufacturers depend heavily on supply of raw materials from domestic and international suppliers. As many governments restricted the movement of goods across countries and locally, manufacturers had to halt production due to lack of raw materials. The outbreak is expected to continue to have a negative impact on businesses throughout 2020 and into 2021. However, it is expected that the mineral products market will recover from the shock across the forecast period as it is a 'black swan' event and not related to ongoing or fundamental weaknesses in the market or the global economy.

The imposition of high taxes on cement and concrete products limited the growth of the mineral products market. Mineral products such as cement, made from a different combination of minerals, is generally sold in high volumes at low prices, but heavy taxes imposed on cement and concrete products restrained the market's growth. In 2018, China placed tariffs of up to 25% on imports of cement from the USA, whereas the USA enforced 10% tariff on imports of cement from China, increasing the operational costs for end-use industries in both the countries. In India, cement is taxed at the highest Goods and Services Tax (GST) rate of 28%. High taxes on cement negatively affected the mineral products market.
