Industrial Goods & Services
In recent years, unprecedented technological advancements as well as the rapid globalization of industry and expansion of manufacturing have led to the development of ever more efficient worldwide supply chains. As a result of this rapidly changing business landscape, Industrial Goods & Services firms competing on a international scale are confronted with an increasingly crowded and competitive global market.
To beat the competition, industrial companies must be aware of global macroeconomic trends, especially those that may impact private consumption. Within a context of heightened global uncertainty, accurate forecasting of macroeconomic trends across countries and regions is therefore essential to an industrial firm’s competitiveness.
