2015 Indiana Manufacturing Survey Results: Back to Uncertainty

State of Hoosier Manufacturing

2015 Survey Results

The results from the 2015 Indiana Manufacturing Survey: Back to Uncertainty reveal that over the last year, the post-recession bounce seems to have cooled…and so has manufacturing sentiment.

Katz, Sapper & Miller and the Indiana University Kelley School of Business conduct the annual Indiana Manufacturing Survey, now in its ninth year, in partnership with the Indiana Manufacturers Association and Conexus Indiana.  Respondents range from small machine shops to global corporations, making industrial equipment, automotive electronics, lifesaving medical products, cutting-edge aerospace technologies and more.

Designed to provide insights into management choices made by manufacturing and distribution companies across Indiana, the annual Indiana Manufacturing Survey offers a better understanding of current market trends and best practices in the following categories:

  • Business environment
  • Manufacturing and distribution methods
  • Performance metrics
  • Relocating, offshoring and onshoring
  • Regulatory concerns
  • Workforce issues
