Manufacturing & Wholesale
The manufacturing and wholesale sector covers many industries and product lines. Global factors continue to impact efficiency and negatively influence margins. The movement towards more automation, digitisation and new materials (‘Industry 4.0’) will create both opportunities and challenges.
Factors impacting stability in the manufacturing sector include:
- Global competition, particularly from BRIC nations
- Taxation considerations
- Currency fluctuations
- Geographical isolation
- Energy costs.
To be competitive, businesses must innovate their product, production line and supply chain solutions. They must continuously challenge and review their operation and strive to deliver cost efficiencies.
