Manufacturing and Construction
Manufacturing has not escaped the economic recession, with global production falling close to contraction levels in 2011. In the first months of 2012 this industry seems on the brink of stagnation again, with U.S. ISM Manufacturing PMI’s falling in February and growth stabilizing elsewhere. The BRIC countries, with China being the leader, are the ones that still provide inspiration and growing markets.
