As a result, the unexpected emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic has had a positive and negative effect on the pharmaceutical and life sciences industries.

The Lidocaine Ointment market has been negatively affected owing to the reduction in the supply chain, disruption in manufacturing activities, and stringent government guidelines. 

Numerous business players supplying goods and software to the industry have experienced a decrease in the selling of these products and some of the limitations on the imports and exports of the products; these trends have led to the reduction in the consumables and equipment used in the industry which has slowed down the growth of the market. However, with the uplift of the lockdown, the market has gained momentum and is most likely to account for the largest market share during the forecast period.
