Negative Impact Of Covid-19 On Canadian Biomass Pellet Machine Supplier From AEM survey
Negative Impact Of Covid-19 On Canadian Biomass Pellet Machine Supplier From AEM survey

The COVID-19 pandemic has taken a toll on biomass wood pellet mill equipment manufacturers in Canada, according to a new survey released by the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM). For example, nearly half (47 per cent) of biomass wood pellet mill equipment manufacturers in Canada surveyed said it will take a year or more for their organizations to recover to pre-COVID business levels.

The survey was in the field from June 22 to August 5, 2020. The 24 respondents weighed in on the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the economy, the industry, their companies, supply chain and manufacturing operations, their financial expectations, as well as the challenges they continue to face and specific ways the federal government can keep biomass wood pellet mill equipment manufacturing strong and ensure the nation’s economic resilience.

Key findings

Nearly half (47 per cent) of biomass wood pellet mill equipment manufacturers in Canada surveyed said it would take one year or more for their organization to recover to pre-COVID business levels.

More than three out of four equipment manufacturers in Canada surveyed identified a decrease in demand (new orders) as the primary impact of COVID-19 on their business and manufacturing operations (76 per cent). Four out of ten (43 per cent) respondents identified supply chain issues as a major impact.

Fifty per cent of Canadian biomass pellet machine equipment manufacturers say they have used or intend to use Canada’s federal COVID-19 assistance programs to help their business, with the other 50 per cent saying they haven’t or will not.

Of the biomass pellet mill equipment manufacturers in Canada accessing the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy (CEWS), 55 per cent said it was “easy” while 22 per cent said it was “relatively easy,” and another 22 per cent said it was “moderately difficult.”

The top additional policies biomass wood pellet mill equipment manufacturers believe the Government of Canada should undertake to help their businesses through the COVID-19 crisis are recognizing the critical importance of Canadian manufacturing capacity, implement measures to increase the competitiveness of the sector, and reward innovative Canadian manufacturers (65 per cent); investing more federal money in infrastructure projects, including increasing the federal portion of funding for provincial and municipal projects (60 per cent); and creating a program to replace older equipment with new, lower emission equipment through tax credits or government grants and loans (60 per cent).

AEM continues to lead the industry’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic and is working closely with Canadian officials to keep the equipment manufacturing industry in Canada strong and ensure the nation’s economic resilience. AEM is calling for bold action by the Canadian government to incentivize the further development of the biomass wood pellet mill equipment manufacturing industry in Canada, and to provide additional economic assistance to businesses of all sizes.
