While German foundries were already struggling with a downturn, the corona crisis has further shaken the industry. The challenge now is to provide assistance and make concrete recommendations for action.
The ongoing corona pandemic is dominating the world and is not stopping at the foundry industry. We have surveyed the industry and identified current and upcoming challenges facing foundrymen, suppliers, manufacturers and service providers.
After years of continuous growth, the global economy has recently begun to shrink. Especially the automotive industry as the most important customer of the foundry industry is affected by this.
We made the reality check and asked 560 users from different industries. The evaluation of the results confirmed our theses, but also surprised us. We have summarized all results in a white paper for you.
