The European household vacuum cleaner industry witnessed a steady slowdown in the first two quarters of 2020 owing to the escalating spread of the Covid-19 pandemic. The manufacturing facilities were temporarily shut down from March to June 2020 due to the restrictions imposed by various governments in the region. Vacuum cleaner manufacturers faced a shortage of labor and raw materials on account of which the demand and supply have been adversely impacted in the region.
