Shifting of Manufacturing Bases to Low-Cost Countries Poses Challenge

The increasing globalisation of European economies is bringing with it some key challenges for vendors of calibration services. With the need to cut production costs in order to compete with global companies, end-user industries are moving their manufacturing bases to low-cost regions such as Asia. This shift among manufacturing industries, that form major accounts for calibration vendors, has lead to a fall in the demand for calibration services in western Europe as well as a dip in the associated revenues. Further, fragmentation of the market is leading to pricing and margin pressures and vendors will need to update their technical know how and expand beyond existing geographic markets to stay competitive.

This Frost & Sullivan research service examines the European markets for calibration services. It includes market opportunities and industry trends that have been evaluated following extensive interviews with market participants. Also, the study provides exhaustive analysis across key product segments and end-user groups such as communications, electronics manufacturing, industrial and automotive, READ MORE >
