Factoid of the Day Thursday, October 23, 2014
The Boston Consulting Group’s third annual survey of senior manufacturing executives at companies with sales of $1 billion or more found that the number of companies bringing production back from China to the U.S. rose from 13% to 16% over the past year, according to its own release. The number of respondents who said they would consider doing so in the near future rose from 20% to 24%. Respondents forecasted that the U.S. will account for an average of 47% of their total production looking out five years, up 7% from last year. Fifty percent of those polled said that they expect to boost their U.S. manufacturing workforces by 5% or more over the next five years. Manufacturers also see a payoff from investing in advanced technologies, such as 3-D printing, robotics and digital manufacturing.
