Cash, Credit and Continuance: The state of liquidity in the manufacturing sector

Since the pandemic hit, business confidence has fluctuated more rapidly than most can remember. Input cost inflation, supply shortages and liquidity issues continue to hamper the manufacturing sector’s recovery. Our survey and subsequent report run in partnership with Make UK brings together the thoughts of more than 200 manufacturers from across the UK.

Senior manufacturing leaders gave their views on:

  • the severity of the financial damage to hit their business since the outbreak of COVID-19;
  • the financial risks that are of utmost concern to them now; and
  • the actions they plan on taking to protect their organisation and optimise their cash position.
