ASSESSING COSTS, RISKS AND CONDITIONS IMPACTING MANUFACTURING
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to underscore the manufacturing sector’s reliance on global production lines and supply chains, qualified location decisions remain vital for manufacturers seeking to safeguard output and maintain growth. Cushman & Wakefield’s Global Manufacturing Risk Index provides clients with guidance and data to make optimal location decisions.
What is the Global Manufacturing Risk Index?
Cushman & Wakefield’s 2021 Global Manufacturing Risk Index assesses the most advantageous locations for global manufacturing among 47 countries in Europe, the Americas and Asia Pacific.
Within the following report, countries are assessed based on four key areas:
- Bounce Back: Projected ability to restart manufacturing operations as vaccines are rolled out and business begins to return to normal
- Conditions: Business environment, including the availability of talent/labor and access to markets
- Costs: Operating costs including labor, electricity and real estate
- Risks: Political, economic and environmental
What trends are impacting global manufacturing?
Supply chain disruptions, labor costs and labor availability are the top factors when it comes to manufacturing location decision making. But breakdowns in production lines caused by COVID-19 lockdowns and an imposed decrease in onsite workforce wreaked havoc in factories across the globe, hindering the manufacturing sector.
