Manufacturing is indeed returning to the United States, due to several factors:

  • Less Supply Chain Disruptions: The COVID-19 pandemic exposed vulnerabilities of distant global supply chains. Supply chains are more resilient by manufacturing in closer proximity to customers and markets.
  • Shorter Lead Times: Keeping operations in the U.S. allows companies to source materials more quickly through shorter supply chains. This improves communication, decision-making, and responsiveness to customer needs.
  • Reduced Shipping Costs and Total Cost of Ownership: Companies recognize that the cost advantages of foreign manufacturing are diminishing, while automation and AI make U.S. production increasingly attractive.
  • Improved Responsiveness to Customers: Proximity to manufacturing facilities improves both internal and external communications, enabling faster time-to-market which is beneficial for when markets and customer preferences shift.
  • Reduced Threats to Intellectual Property: Manufacturing in the U.S. reduces exposure to legal and regulatory challenges, particularly theft of IP.
