Manufacturing: a key driver for UK exports

Earlier this month, the EEF association cut its forecast for factory output growth in 2014 to 3.3 percent from 3.5 percent following a quarterly survey of its members. This, however, would still represent the sector’s fastest expansion since 2010 as SMEs are encouraged to export and seize opportunities to explore new markets.

Latest figures state that 85% of UK exports are manufactured products with the largest markets in the US and Europe. The UK Government has called for UK companies to double export to India over the next two years and with 1,000 Indian companies in the UK their investment here is more than in the rest of Europe combined.

Given the high value of products being exported with transport equipment, chemical products, machinery and equipment leading the way then getting started in the world of exporting can be daunting.
