Evidence-based analysis for the manufacturing sector.
Manufacturing has been through a difficult decade, culminating in the end of car production in October 2017. But there are opportunities at home and abroad, with rising demand in emerging markets, government policy changes and new technology all presenting opportunities for the sector.
BIS Oxford Economics has developed a range of services and techniques for analysing macro and sector trends for the manufacturing sector, supported by our wider global team of 250 economists and industry experts:
The world’s most widely used frameworks for macroeconomic and industry simulations, our economic and industry models cover 80 countries and more than 100 sectors and support the creation of custom forecasts and scenarios.
