Swiss Manufacturing Survey
Process and Chemicals
The Process sector in Switzerland includes metals, chemicals and forest, paper & packaging companies.
In light of an increased economic volatility and uncertainty, many of these companies are faced with continued cost pressures and are forced to make ongoing operational adjustments.
Supply chain efficiency and optimisation (e.g. bundling of purchasing, bundling of suppliers, improvement of planning etc.) as well as the expansion of global procurement using low-cost country (LCC) sourcing harbour significant potential for further reducing costs and increasing the overall competitiveness of Swiss companies operating in this sector.
