A comprehensive overview of how changing dynamics will require MNCs to re-evaluate their production footprints. Learn how to leverage on-the-ground market insight and determine a suitable localization deployment path to win in the region.

Overview, Table of Contents & Sample Pages below


Changing global and regional dynamics are leading executives to shift from an almost exclusive focus on building efficient production networks to building more resilient production networks. Escalating US-China trade tensions have brought to light the downside of over-relying on one country for production and underlined the need to diversify. While these tensions will act as the catalyst, longer-term trends will also push many multinationals to diversify parts of their production footprints. As cost-benefit dynamics change, executives will need to re-evaluate the return on investment of their existing or planned production facilities, and assess whether past assumptions still hold in this changing environment. DuckerFrontier has developed a manufacturing prioritization tool that will enable MNCs to assess the attractiveness of Asia-Pacific economies for their manufacturing needs.
