Industry Trends

The manufacturing industry continues to become more competitive, fueled by increasing globalization. Several factors will continue to pressure industry dynamics and competitiveness including:

  • The growing need for companies to acquire new technologies to remain competitive and lower their time-to-market, in turn driving the need to control R&D costs through increased outsourcing
  • Global price competitiveness, forcing manufacturers to transfer production overseas in search of lower wages and a more ideal tax structure
  • A strong acquisition environment, driven by corporate's looking to fuel growth via strategic acquisitions and private equity seeking to acquire leading, niche businesses in the sector. Rising raw material costs as demand for products increases and resources become more scarce
  • An emphasis on consolidation as companies look to make acquisitions to strengthen leading product lines, while divesting or restructuring sluggish business units
  • Decreasing employment numbers due to efficiencies provided by advancing technology
  • The need to manage and refine outsourcing programs to drive proper integration and complete utilization of cost advantages

In such a dynamic environment, is your company looking for growth, liquidity, or seeking to take advantage of these trends through strategic acquisitions or divestitures? We can help.
