2019 Manufacturing Survey

Thank you for reviewing our 2019 National Manufacturing Outlook and Insights report — if you participated in this survey, thank you for sharing your expertise.

For 2019, manufacturers expressed significant optimism for overcoming hurdles.

Looking ahead, manufacturers expect raw materials, labor costs, lack of available talent, and competition to be significant hurdles in 2019. The tariffs implemented by President Trump provide productivity issues; however, an increase in spending on big data and business intelligence deliver innovative technology for minimizing productivity concerns. We believe the resilience and success our manufacturing clients have created for themselves will help alleviate the major concerns for 2019.

Priorities for 2019 focus on growing sales, improving profitability, and addressing workforce shortage. The challenge of gaining a competitive advantage remains critically important.

We hope these findings provide you with insightful questions to ask and strategic ideas to evaluate these topics, ultimately helping you grow your business and achieve your goals.
