The soft economic recovery has produced several challenges for E&IP companies, especially as maintaining profitability becomes harder to do in light of intensifying competition and still sluggish demand. E&IP companies must now look for new ways to take fixed costs out of the business and exercise greater due diligence when acquiring assets and brokering partnerships. The ability to globalize effectively is fast becoming a differentiator within the sector and KPMG’s E&IP practice can put its global reach to work, helping companies pinpoint waste and respond to changes in the business, regulatory and consumer environment.
