The U.S. economy was undeniably strong in 2018 and was a productive year for many manufacturing companies. It’s not surprising to see that almost 40% of manufacturers surveyed expect their growth rate to be the same as the predicted industry growth rate of 6.6%. These findings coincide with the Spring 2018 Semiannual Economic Forecast, who expected to see strong growth in the manufacturing sector.

On average, manufacturing executives forecasted 6.6% revenue growth for 2018, with an increase in production capacity of nearly 5% and an increase in capital expenditures of nearly 10%. However, finding and onboarding qualified labor and being able to pass on raw material price increases will ultimately define manufacturing revenues and profitability.
