1. They are planning to tap the indigenous as well as the international markets from UK. .Assignments 1] TASK I A multi core business unit from US would like establish its operations in UK in the Chemical industry. As a result of improvements in global transport infrastructure. At the same time. competition in domestic and international markets for manufactured goods has intensified. 3. It plans to employ around 5000 people at various levels from the globe. including the UK. This has enabled them to enhance their productivity and reduce costs while at the same gaining important access to fast growing emerging markets. As the rate of globalisation has accelerated. and significant progress in the elimination of tariff and non-tariff barriers. have responded to the rise in globalisation and increased international competition by outsourcing and offshoring to emerging countries lower value activities in the company’s value chain such as production.1. UK manufacturers are now facing increasing competition from emerging economies which are steadily moving up the value chain into higher value activities and industries. As well as competition from other leading manufacturing countries such as the United States. 3.3. Germany and Italy. 2. the UK manufacturing sector accounted for around 14% of the total value of services exports. manufacturers are now able to separate the different parts of the manufacturing value chain and carry out particular economic activities in different geographical locations around the world. manufacturers in developed countries have sought to differentiate themselves further by shifting away from traditional business strategies based around the sale of a particular product to new models where the sale of a product is combined with associated services. France. Manufacturers in developed countries. In 2005.

knowledge and intangible investment such as branding. marketing and training. increased demand for higher environmental standards and greener products.

Faced with increased competition from emerging economies. capital. the UK has increasingly specialised in higher-technology manufacturing industries such as aerospace and pharmaceuticals. Over time. goods and services to travel over longer distances much more quickly and cheaply than before. so the characteristics of UK manufacturing have changed significantly. Germany and the United States. Improvements in global transport infrastructure. continuing technological progress and rapid growth in emerging markets. Manufacturing industries which could benefit from the expected changes in global and domestic demand include Life Sciences. space. advancements in information and communication technologies. This compares with emerging economies including Brazil. In some cases. these trends could lead to a revival of those manufacturing industries which previously may have been stagnating or in decline. Engaging in other markets can prove highly beneficial for UK manufacturers since it enables them to keep at the forefront of ongoing developments in innovation and technology through greater exposure to new ideas and knowledge and access to customers/ suppliers and skills around the world. This has led to the development of new. and significant progress in the elimination of tariff and non-tariff barriers on manufactured goods has enabled information. In common with leading manufacturing countries such as Japan. Much of the activity in modern day manufacturing involves high levels of technological and non-technological innovation and investment in skills.Over the next few decades. the competitive advantage of different countries in dynamic industries characterised by high levels of innovation and technological progress will change as new improved products are developed and brought to market. better quality and more sophisticated products. Strengths and capabilities in UK manufacturing As globalisation has gathered pace. UK manufacturers must continue to develop their productive capabilities in order to remain internationally competitive. This will be driven by a range of factors including rising incomes. The new product and geographical market opportunities generated as a result of these trends could lead to the emergence and expansion of new industries. biotechnology/ pharmaceuticals and medical technology and weaker in the areas of electronics. automotive. The impact of globalisation on UK manufacturing A key feature of the latest phase of globalisation has been the globalisation of the manufacturing value chain. . The proportion of firms which are exporting is also increasing in many manufacturing industries. particularly those based around new technologies. labour. and more innovative business models and processes. demographic and lifestyle change. aerospace. electronics. Russia. composites and low carbon. domestic and global demand for products and services is anticipated to change. optics and nano-technology and information technology. India and China which have specialised to a greater extent in lower technology industries such as textiles. The UK compares well against the leading industrialised countries on various measures of innovation including research and development and investment in intangible assets. Current patent activity suggests that the UK is presently relatively strong in the areas of organic chemistry. These trends will influence the long-term growth prospects for UK manufacturing.
This will need to include the economic and social dimensions of globalisation. including research and development. Focus needs to be on economic and legal dimensions with examples drawn from specific workplace policies and procedures. manufacturers are now able to separate out the different parts of the manufacturing value chain (as shown in Box 2 below) and carry out particular economic activities in different geographical locations around the world. the UK is increasingly facing stronger competition from the emerging economies. skills. Discuss the effects of globalisation 2. Russia. Box 2: The manufacturing value chain Manufacturing is often perceived as merely production – the process of transforming raw materials and semi-finished products either into new more complex goods or for final sale to consumers.

Based upon the above situations: 1. For many years.3) In the assignment the learners need to explain the effects of globalization on national economies.2. in particular Brazil.
