  • Scope
  • Background

    The global recession in 2008 and 2009 has triggered significant changes in the global manufacturing sector which will impact the metalworking fluids industry. The on-going shift in manufacturing from advanced economies of North America and Western Europe to the growth economies of Asia, South America, and Eastern Europe seems to have halted and may even reverse in the coming years. China faces a manpower shortage which is driving up wages and undercutting the rationale for off-shoring. In an age of lean inventories, long supply chains are more prone to disruptions. Long supply chains lead to higher logistics costs and slower response to demand changes. Manufacturers are more aware of risks to intellectual property (IP) when operating in countries with poor IP protection. For their part many governments are following an explicit industrial policy making aid contingent on domestic manufacturing. While a large scale reversal of manufacturing to advanced economies is probably unlikely, the current environment will stimulate a small scale re-shoring of manufacturing activity and may protect existing manufacturing units. This will directly impact growth rates for metalworking fluids in different parts of the world. At the same time, health and environmental issues, technological factors, and M&A activity continue to pose new challenges and opportunities to suppliers.
