Manufacturing Risk Index 201802/03/2018

The EMEA accounts for five of the top 10 markets. In Central Europe, close proximity to Western European economies and improved infrastructure in the form of new motorways have significantly boosted the appeal of Hungary (ranked 7th), Czech Republic (8th) and Slovakia (9th). Whilst labour costs have increased in recent years, they are still below those further west.

These wage hikes, as well as growing labour shortages, have in turn increased the attractiveness of locations further east, including Lithuania (2nd), Turkey (10th), Romania (16th) and Bulgaria (19th). As well as the lowest labour costs, Lithuania was only beaten by Estonia for ease of doing business. In emerging manufacturing locations Turkey, Romania and Bulgaria comparatively weaker infrastructure and geopolitical uncertainty continue to act as a deterrent from manufacturers locating their plants. Poland took 17thposition.

Joanna Sinkiewicz, Partner, Head of Industrial and Logistics Agency, Cushman & Wakefield Poland, said: “Manufacturing Risk Index is our annual publication that presents the world’s most attractive manufacturing locations and changing trends. The report looks at key factors which face companies when deciding where to locate new manufacturing facilities, including business environment, risks and costs. Poland has been consistently ranked high in the global manufacturing risk index for years, but has now slipped four places to 17th compared to 2016. We should work on reducing investor risks as improving the perception of Poland will clearly add to the attractiveness of our country.”
