With the growing volatility in the resource prices, industrial product manufacturers are developing frameworks and tools to improve transparency and mitigate supply chain risks. The industrial products manufacturing sector at large comprises of products and services to meet the growing demands of the end-user segments. The rising competition from the end-user segments is forcing leading industrial products manufacturers to realign their business models with the changing market dynamics. Although the industrial products manufacturing space is witnessing a promising growth, owing to the relentless demand from the Asia-Pacific region, additional factors may influence the growth of the market. These include:

  • Shortage of skilled talent: Since the manufacturing sector is in the early stages of production, prominent industrial products manufacturers are relying on innovations to offer market leading products and related services. The top-line and bottom-line objectives in the industrial products manufacturing space can only be met through adequate skill talent. So, it becomes essential for the manufacturers to invest heavily on skill empowerment to address the rising concerns from the end-users.
  • Regulatory risks: The industrial products sector at large is a victim of stringent government regulations. With the growing environmental concern, prominent organizations are facing the need to comply with the regulations while maintaining the product quality. Moreover, it becomes essential for the organizations to meet the regulatory concerns before offering the products to the end-users.
  • Commodity price fluctuations: The recent economic slowdown has greatly affected the manufacturing space with frequent fluctuations in the prices of the commodities. To meet the growing demand, manufacturers are forced to shift their operations and supply base to their end-user segments to reduce costs and risk.
