How has COVID-19 had a significant negative impact on the Rockets and Missiles Market? 

COVID-19 has had a significant negative impact on the Rockets and Missiles market in several ways. The pandemic has disrupted the global supply chain and caused delays in the production and delivery of components and systems for rockets and missiles. This has led to a decline in the production and launch of rockets and missiles, which has impacted the overall growth of the market. 

Additionally, the pandemic has resulted in a decrease in global economic activity, leading to reduced investment in the space industry. Many countries have had to cut back their space budgets, resulting in the cancellation or postponement of several space missions. This has further slowed down the growth of the rockets and missiles market. 

The pandemic has also impacted the demand for rockets and missiles. The restrictions on travel and social distancing measures have led to a decline in the demand for commercial satellite launches, which are a significant source of revenue for the rockets and missiles market.
