Global Manufacturing Shifts: An EMEA Perspective

Published on

A research produced by

Rising labour costs in global manufacturing hot spots are redefining the map of global manufacturing, driving growth into the next group of low cost countries. This is forcing higher-cost countries such as China up the value chain. Labour cost is not the only determinant of production/ sourcing decisions. Even for cost-sensitive production such as fast fashion, proximity to consumer markets is increasingly important. Regions/countries close to major consumer blocks that offer a good balance of cost/risk are those best placed to see more “nearshoring” investment. These regions include Central and Eastern Europe, some Mediterranean countries, South East Asia and Mexico.
