COVID-19 has had a significant impact on global supply chains, inadvertently pushing North American businesses towards reshoring. Our 2021 State of North American Manufacturing Annual Report estimates that reshoring could generate as much as $443 billion for the economy over the next year, with over $204 billion in sourcing requests placed through our website in the last twelve months alone.
