Purpose: To understand and measure the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the market for scientific technologies, laboratory products and furniture.

Methodology: TDA surveyed a total of 186 manufacturers and distributors of scientific laboratory products from March 25 through April 1, 2020. We enlisted our partners to distribute the survey to their members and community at large.


We are, no doubt, living in challenging times. The COVID-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc on global economies, infected nearly a million and a half people, and killed tens of thousands, and it is just getting started. The scientific markets have also been greatly impacted. While some researchers have been working on overdrive to find a treatment, cure, and, ultimately, a vaccine against this deadly enemy, others have been forced to shut down their labs or vastly decrease their research activities. This pandemic’s effect on the scientific community is being directly felt by the laboratory product and furniture manufactures/distributors.

We hope this survey will be a valuable strategic tool and help your company navigate these difficult times.
