Report Shows Offshoring Uptick 美国制造业离岸生产呈上涨趋势


Global strategy and management consulting firm A.T.


Kearney, Chicago, has released its 2014 Reshoring Index. Te change in ratio between U.S. manufacturing imports and gross output is expected to show a year-over-year decline, lower by 20 basis points from 2013, as offshoring to foreign manufacturing markets outpaces reshoring. “While the so-called reshoring trend has helped improve the mood of U.S. manufacturing since the recession, the reality is that the import value of manufactured goods into the U.S. from 14 low-cost Asian countries has grown at an average of 8% per year in the last five years,” said Pramod Gupta, A.T. Kearney principal and study coauthor. Te top three reshoring industries are electrical equip-


ment, appliance and component manufacturing at 15%, transportation equipment manufacturing at 15% and apparel manufacturing at 12% of the cases in the study. Improvement in delivery time led the reasons executives


gave in favor of reshoring, with quality improvement a close second followed by brand/image. While there has been an overall lift in U.S. manufactur-


ing for five straight years since 2009, imports of offshored manufactured goods into the U.S. have increased at a faster rate than any return of manufacturing operations to our soil and, for the 14 top offshoring locations combined, amounted to $630 billion in 2013. 


芝加哥的全球战略和管理咨询公司A.T. Kearney,发 布了2014年“回岸指数”报告。由于离岸生产超出了 回岸生产,美国制造业进口量和本土总产量的比例变化 显示同比下降趋势,2014年比2013年同比降低20个基 点。


A.T. Kearney的负责人及研究者之一Pramod Gupta 说:“虽然所谓的回岸趋势已帮助美国制造业走出经济 萧条的阴影,但事实上,在过去的5年里,从14个低成 本亚洲国家进口的制造业产品总额平均每年以8%的速 度增长。”


“回岸”排名前三位的行业是电气设备及配件制造, 交通运输设备制造和服装行业,分别占总行业的15% ,15%和12%。


交货时间的缩短是管理者支持回岸生产的最大理由, 其次是质量提高,再次是品牌/形象。


在2009-2013年期间,美国制造业连续五年获得了总 体提高,其中,离岸制造业产品的进口增速比任何回归 本土的制造业发展速度都快。2013年,14个主要离岸 生产地的产值合计达6.3亿美元。 
