Hinging on trade: Manufacturers will look for growth abroad amid high import penetration
Hardware Manufacturing in the US
The Hardware Manufacturing industry is struggling, yet fighting, as it faces various problems, most stemming from international competition. Revenue fell every year from 2003 to 2010, but this trend has since reversed. The rapidly rising tide of low-cost imports continues to erode industry revenue and reinforce a focus on price-based competition. The level of price-based competition prevents domestic manufacturers from implementing price increases despite rising production costs. Furthermore, many companies are moving operations to countries where operating costs are lower, allowing them to earn better profit margins. The industry will continue to experience growth over the next five years. IBISWorld anticipates that industry revenue will increase over the next five years.
