2018 North America Food & Beverage Spending Outlook
Presented by Industrial Info
Wednesday, August 8, 2018
The U.S. Food & Beverage Industry's growth has been on an upward trajectory since the end of the global recession, and for many firms, much of that growth has been the result of strong gains in export markets and duty-free imports. While underlying trends and key market dynamics in domestic markets influence the outlook for capital expenditures, recent disruptions to trade flows and the imposition of tariffs on food products will have the biggest impact.
What once seemed like just rhetoric and posturing over trade agreements has since turned into the volleying of tariffs by trading partners and the seeking of new partnerships. U.S. firms and their manufacturing bases are responding to the potential for an all-out trade war.
The prospects of new trade deals, particularly for the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), and concerns over less export demand, could derail growth projections for an industry that relies heavily on growth and sustenance in offshore markets.
The webinar will cover the following topics and more:
- » A focus on key market drivers influencing future spending
