With a growing world population and increased demand for materials, water, energy and land, supply chains will become much more volatile and manufacturing closer to home will make the country more resilient to these effects. Reshoring production, where manufacturers who had previously moved their production overseas bring it back to this country, is already a reality, with it now much easier for Britain to compete with lower cost locations on quality, delivery speed and customisation.
A booming sector
Britain is the birthplace of the industrial revolution and remains a leading manufacturing nation today. The country is also a world leader in hi-tech sectors such as aerospace. There are 2.6 million people directly employed in manufacturing in the UK, and British manufacturers saw product sales of £364.7bn in 2016, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS).
