Key challenges in the sector

The UK manufacturing sector contributes a significant proportion of UK exports and is growing in industry ranks by value of output. This growth doesn’t come without challenges, such as trade barriers, political instability and keeping pace with technological advances, whilst remaining sustainable. Despite global economic uncertainty, UK manufacturers remain resilient and resourceful. Investment in automation and technology, combined with a focus on high-value manufacturing, is high on the agenda. As the need to be sustainable is becoming essential rather than desirable, more manufacturers are stepping up to meet the environmental concerns – and making cost savings in the process.

There is no shortage of challenges for the sector, and the challenges will be different for each business depending on factors such as location, the specialism of the industry in which they operate, and the dynamics of the market place at any point in time.
