From a Quercus perspective, the Industrials sector includes companies that manufacture and distribute capital goods in support of industries such as aerospace and defence, automotive, chemicals, construction and engineering, and electrical equipment and heavy machinery.
The UK Industrials and Manufacturing sectors still account for over 10% of GDP, but the industry is under increasing pressure from cheaper imports from overseas, whilst the aerospace and defence segment has been hit by defence budget cuts and aircraft safety concerns following multiple issues with Boeing’s 737MAX aircraft.
The COVID-19 situation has piled additional pressure on the industry with many manufacturing facilities forced to close due to lockdown, and the global slowdown in the tourism industry leading airlines to cancel aircraft orders, with the resultant impact on the entire supply chain. However, those businesses manufacturing PPE or cleaning products will have been positively impacted by the pandemic, as will those who were able to quickly adjust their facilities to help support the manufacture of ventilators.
