Manufacturing Barometer special focus: COVID-19 Contingency Plans

Manufacturing Barometer special focus: COVID-19 Contingency Plans

The last Manufacturing Barometer, covering Q3 2019/20, was largely optimistic, with 60% of respondents expecting sales to grow over the coming months. Three months later the outlook across the UK, and indeed the world, is very different.

COVID-19 will have a drastic impact on the global economy. How has this already impacted the SME businesses who make up over 98% of the UK manufacturing sector, and what are their predictions for the future?

This special focus report:

  • Uncovers how SME manufacturers are performing since the UK introduced measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
  • Reveals the support they require to enable recovery, and details their business expectations going forward.
