Cost pressure, shortage of skilled workers & decline in orders: Negative sales development expected for this year – take countermeasures!

In its December 2022 PwC Mechanical Engineering Barometer, leading auditing firm PwC noted that inflation continues to put pressure on the German economy. It identified a negative attitude among respondents to the economic trend in Germany, with an expected industry sales decline of -2.9%. In fact, according to the VDMA, declining order intake in the machinery and plant engineering sector will characterize the situation at the beginning of 2023. Despite a slight easing in supply chains, there are reports of inadequate supplies of resources as well as an increase in costs, which will have an impact on price development.Added to this is the dwindling supply of skilled workers; according to VDMA data, there are currently no 14,000 positions not filled.
