Global Manufacturing Outlook 2014: Performance in the crosshairs  

The 2014 Global Manufacturing Outlook: Performance in the crosshairs report examines the continuing evolution of the strategies that manufacturers are deploying to drive value and performance across the enterprise.

Manufacturers are entering into a new era of ‘disruptive complexity’ which is fundamentally changing the way manufacturers compete and succeed, according to KPMG’s 2014 Global Manufacturing Outlook.


New strategies also bring new challenges and complexities. Based on this year’s report, there is clearly much work still to be done to leverage the power of these business models, tools and technologies to ultimately overcome the complexities of data proliferation, the accelerating pace of change and disruptive innovation across the sector.


Key findings from the 2014 report include:


  • Manufacturers are focused on understanding their product cost and profitability
  • Organizations are rethinking their product development strategy
  • Supply chain transparency and visibility remain a key challenge for manufacturers
  • A majority of respondents think that they could achieve a globally integrated supply chain within the next three to five years.
