Exploiting manufacturing opportunities with quality foam
It’s certainly true that trading conditions in the UK and many other countries around the world have been tough over recent years, but it seems as though demand for manufactured goods may be set to rise and if you’re keen to make the most of opportunities as and when they present themselves, you may benefit from considering the potential of foam as a material.
There are many different foams to use and they can offer the perfect solutions in a range of scenarios. By collaborating with an effective and reliable foam producer, you might be able to reap significant rewards.
Business sentiment on the rise
According to research conducted by the Confederation of British Industry (CBI), business sentiment among Britain’s small and medium-sized manufacturers rose during the last financial quarter.
A total of 356 firms responded to its survey and a balance of +22 per cent said they were more optimistic regarding the business situation in the three months to April. This figure represented the first rise in sentiment in a year.
Demand to increase
The organisations polled noted a rise in the volume of new orders of eight per cent during the three-month period and this is expected to rise to 27 per cent during the current quarter.
With this in mind, now could be the perfect time to investigate the potential of foam products. Harnessing this material could help you to capitalise on the potential increases in trading activity.
Responding to the figures, the CBI’s Lucy Armstrong said: “Small and medium-sized manufacturers are feeling more optimistic for the first time in a year, an encouraging development given the important role that they play in our economy.
“Indeed, firms expect orders and output to rise strongly in the coming quarter and plan to invest more in the year ahead, pointing to growing momentum in manufacturing activity.”
