In particular, the strategies being adopted to build resilience and agility such as supply chain reviews, investing in people, innovation and green technologies.

The report findings come from our recent survey tracking manufacturer’s expectations for the year ahead and insights about the sector’s potential for growth, challenges and opportunities across the UK economy and globally.

  • Manufacturers’ views on the opportunities for their businesses in 2022 outweighing the risks – the UK remains a competitive location for manufacturing
