At the end of 2019, the sudden COVID-19 spread across the world, and the cruel epidemic put the indium, bismuth, germanium and gallium industry to the test. With the post-epidemic era arriving, how can companies survive during the storm? The market demand still exists, but it keeps temporarily delayed. How can companies take the lead in the coming retaliatory rebound? Let us work through the difficulties of the industry one after another and climb to a higher peak.
