Finding the right balance: globalisation as opportunity and burden
For many years, the industrial goods sector benefited immensely from progressive globalisation, but increasingly pays the bill for international solidarity: certain sectors have to contend with low-cost inputs from emerging markets. At the same time, competitive advantages decrease due to steady productivity gains, which cause local market participants to do more regarding innovation, agility and - above all - implementation time.
Meanwhile, the timing of technological disruption is increasing rapidly. Thus, R&D investments need to be higher, while shortened product life cycles put pressure on sales departments. In addition, global demand is increasingly volatile and less predictable. Traditional understanding of business structures in the context of capital goods is crumbling - the industrial goods industry is thus forced to rethink its basic principles in all major subsectors.
