Financing For Manufacturing Businesses

Despite the recent years of economic downturn, manufacturing in the UK is strong. The UK is currently the 11th largest manufacturing nation in the world. The manufacturing industry makes up 11 per cent off GVA (gross value added) and employs 2.6 million people.

Despite years of ups, downs and transitions, manufacturing in the UK boasts an average annual productivity increase of 3.6 per cent, two-and-a-half times greater than the UK economy as a whole. And among its leading manufacturing sub-sectors:

  • The UK is second globally in aerospace manufacturing.
  • The UK-based auto industry exported a record-breaking 84 per cent of its production in 2011.
  • The chemical and pharmaceutical industries add £20 million per day to UK balance of trade.

The sector is also quite diverse, comprising a wide variety of different industries, technologies and activities: Established industries such as food and drink, aerospace, pharmaceuticals, electronics and automotive, but also new industries developing around emerging technologies—low carbon, industrial biotechnology, nanotechnology, digital and advanced materials like composites.

With the globalisation of the manufacturing value chain, manufacturers can now execute different activities in different global geographies. Competition in domestic and international markets for manufactured goods has intensified. UK manufacturers face competition from countries in the West, as well as emerging economies, such as Brazil, Russia, India and China.

Looking ahead, trends expected to affect domestic and global demand for products and services will also impact the long-range growth prospects for UK manufacturing. These include

  • Rising incomes
  • Growing demand for higher environmental standards and greener products
  • Changes in demographic and lifestyles
  • Continuing technological progress
  • Rapid growth in emerging markets

These could very well help revive those manufacturing industries which previously may have been stagnating or in decline.
