Industry – Manufacturing/Distribution

Overview and Current Climate:
The industrial sector is both large and diverse, with many sub-sectors and challenges. Its diversity ranges from manufacturing to distribution, from all types of products to all levels of human capital, from issues of power generation and sustainability, from more production with less cost, time to market, escalating fuel costs, and the list goes on.
Today, companies in this sector are focused on how to get maximum productivity from their human capital, technology, and supply chain investments. Recent surveys indicate that CEOs in this sector rate the top three opportunities for growth as geographic expansion, higher penetration of existing markets and new product development that is largely driven by talent. The heightened importance of innovation in general will drive greater sophistication in every element of the supply chain and every function that impacts an organization’s ability to go to market quickly and profitably.
In particular, the growing agribusiness in Brazil is worth 33 per cent of the GNP and the most economic producer of ethanol.
