Key Findings

Supply problems and higher energy prices add to inflation

The Eurozone is forecast to face higher inflationary pressures over 2022-2023, largely due to rises in energy prices and potential energy supply disruptions from Russia. Any energy supply disruptions would place more pressure on the profit margins of businesses.

Pinching pennies to fight inflation

Reusing old parts and designs, removing accessories and offering affordable models are some of the measures manufacturers are adopting to ease inflationary pressures and avoid increasing prices.

Exploring new business models

Manufacturers are pivoting their businesses towards services and accessories, which offer higher margins, instead of raising prices.

Adding more features to justify increases in prices

Businesses need to continue to grow their revenues and maintain margins, and will be reluctant to absorb cost increases. Adding more features or new technology can help to mask the increase in product selling prices.
