By processing industry we mean companies in the metals, paper and pharmaceutical industries. To meet their challenges PwC can assist in:
- Restructuring/capacity reduction
- Further integration of the value chain
- Increased investment in research and development to identify/develop new alternative uses
- Development of new technologies to ensure more efficient production and higher product quality.
The processing industry is one of the largest and most global industries with production and competition spread across the world. The different parts of the processing industry are characterised by individual differences, but there are also some similarities and trends among them. PwC recognises both differences and similarities.
