At Rosler Metal Finishing, we believe in helping our clients in many industries find a better way to finish and process their products. Part of our success comes from understanding their industry, their process requirements, and market drivers.
Our friends at IndustryWeek are making our jobs easier when it comes to understanding market drivers. The top findings from their recent research The Future of Manufacturing: 2020 and Beyond include:
Positive outlook for growth and sales
Leaders are overwhelmingly positive about their business growth prospects. Nine out of 10 expect revenues to increase and more than half (58%) anticipate strong growth of 5% or higher per year over the next five years. More than two thirds (70%) of manufacturers expect to increase the number of people that they employ over the next five years.
Fulfillment strategies shift towards build-to-order
Over the next five years, manufacturers will continue to move away from make-to-stock and shift towards less inventory dependent build-to-configure and engineer-to-order fulfillment strategies. This shift will cause processes and company strategy to focus on agility. Companies will be required to quickly shift attention and resources to mitigate risks and fully capitalize on growth opportunities.
Increased productivity tops manufacturers’ investment list
Companies will invest billions of dollars in a wide range of technologies during 2020. Decisions on where to invest will depend on leadership priorities and objectives. Predictably, whether driven by new technology or process improvements, productivity tops the list. The top 5 new technology investment priorities include:
- Higher productivity
- Faster responsiveness to customer orders and requests
- Enhanced collaboration with customers and suppliers
- Enhanced market intelligence
- More effective customer communication
Market Volatility and rising material costs threaten growth
he top challenges to meeting these strong growth expectations are market volatility, rising material costs, price reduction pressures, and increasing labor costs. To thwart such threats, according to Industry Week research, manufacturers are pushing hard to improve performance across a range of capabilities, starting with improving production processes, strengthening customer relationships and finding people with the right skills and experience.
