Among the MEA countries, South Africa has faced the highest number of COVID-19 confirmed cases 611,450. Other major countries that are facing the economic impact of COVID-19 include Iran, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Egypt, Morocco, and Kuwait. The region comprises many growing economies such as UAE, among others, which are prospective markets for horticulture lightning providers, owing to the huge presence of investment in vertical farming. The COVID-19 pandemic is going to severely impact the MEA market compared to the other regions since the major problem related to declining oil prices are already affecting the economies of several oil-producing countries in MEA. In addition to this, the factory lockdowns, business shutdowns, and travel bans are further aggravating the economic problems of the countries in the MEA region. Hence, the estimated decline in MEA’s economic condition and impact of COVID-19 on the growth of various industries in the region is expected to negatively impact the growth of the horticulture lightning market in 2020 and 2021.
