As we approach the end of 2015 our thinking is turning towards 2016 predictions for US manufacturing and what they mean for you, your customers and for us at CDS. How and where will our 2016 growth come from? With the help of many experts as references, here are two predictions for US manufacturing market growth and how you could get market-share growth. We recommend you do both and here’s how!
1. eCommerce has Hit the Tipping Point
We predict that industrial suppliers that don’t offer an excellent eCommerce (online product search and purchase) customer experience in 2016 and beyond can likely expect a Wal-Mart 2015 experience.
2. Economic Predictions for 2016 and Beyond
We were impressed by the predictions, logic and balanced views of MAPI (Manufacturers Alliance for Productivity and Innovation) Chief Economist, Dan Meckstroth and below link to his recent presentation and list a few bullet points from it:
From the MAPI economic forecast model most, but not all, manufacturing sectors will grow in 2016 and 2017 and you can grow with the market as long as you maintain your market-share. The other way to grow is to gain market-share from your competitors and we believe eCommerce is a key to achieving that type of growth as well as to defend your existing market-share. Don’t let your competitors do to you what Amazon has done to Wal-Mart!
