Manufacturing Barometer

The Manufacturing Barometer maps confidence, trends and opinions from within the manufacturing industry where the findings are used to help lobby local and national Government to ensure that SME manufacturers are receiving more of the right support they need to grow within an ever competitive environment.

The findings from these surveys will be used to help shape the future of support programmes. Each quarter the survey looks at a ‘special focus’ relating to current news or activities from within the sector and/or economy.


COVID-19 Contingency Plans

The Manufacturing Barometer is live and we’re seeking your input!

Now, more than ever, it is vital that SME manufacturers are able to communicate their business needs.
The impact of COVID-19 will vary from business to business depending on the type of product being manufactured. Whether you are experiencing a spike in demand or a reduction in sales, we want to better understand the support you need as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak.

Help reflect the voice of the sector!

Your response will help identify and call for the support you, and other manufacturing SMEs, need to help mitigate the impact that COVID-19 has on your business.
