Summary of Manufacturing

The manufacturing sector plays an important role in Canada’s innovation-driven economy. Canadian factories employ over 1.7 million people in industries ranging from transportation equipment and chemicals to food processing and machinery. Manufacturing accounted for over $450 billion or 10% of Canada’s GDP in 2021– demonstrating its significance.

The industry faces challenges from globalization pressures and disruptive technologies. Rising costs, skilled labor shortages and supply chain issues impacted production during the pandemic. Additionally– shifts in consumer demand, decarbonization efforts, and geopolitical tensions introduce uncertainties. To maintain competitiveness – Canadian manufacturers must embrace new technologies, streamline operations and develop sustainable practices.

The industry size of manufacturing market of Canada is estimated to reach $559.18 billion by 2029 from $502.66 billion in 2023 with a CAGR of 2.70%. it accounts for about 14% of the market size within this region.

The North American region has considered that the manufacturing sector is an essential part of its economy. And leads to innovation, productivity and displays an increased rate of employment. Nevertheless – the manufacturing industry in North America faces several challenges and opportunities in the 21st century – such as: global competition, technological change, environmental regulations, trade policies and labor issues. Based on our estimates, we can say that the North America’s regional manufacturing industry is forecasted to be a $4045.39 billion industry in 2029 from $3696 billion in 2023 with a CAGR of 2.50%.

Recent Trends and Insights

Recent data indicates a recovery is underway with manufacturing sales up over 8% year-over-year in 2022. Reshoring trends are also benefiting Canadian plants as companies seek to shorten supply lines. Sectors like– transportation, fabricated metals and machinery experienced strong growth. Meanwhile – policy support for cleantech is driving expansion in electric vehicles, batteries, renewable energy components and other advanced industries.

Adoption of automation alongwith robotics and 3D printing is accelerating across subsectors to boost productivity and flexibility. This allows production of customized low-volume items more affordably. Data analytics also helps optimize plant performance. A focus on sustainability involves integrating renewable energy, green chemistry processes, zero-waste initiatives and closed-loop material recovery.

Skills shortages remain an obstacle– though talent development programs in partnership with colleges are helping address this. Going forward – innovation, digital transformation and a renewed focus on North American trade will be pivotal for the manufacturing industry in Canada to capitalize on new opportunities in the global marketplace.                                    

Product insights

To reduce energy costs and carbon footprints, industries such as food and beverage are using solar, wind and other renewable energy sources to power their factories. Renewable components are also being prioritised by electric car makers.

Companies explore new revenue streams through product recycling, refurbishment and reuse to reduce waste. For example – consumer electronics brands now offer trade-in programs for older devices.

Bioplastics, plant-based fabrics and green chemicals allow substitution of petrochemicals and other resource-intensive inputs. Firms also focus on recyclability in product design. Emerging digital technologies continue transforming factory floors.

Overall– sustainability-driven innovations as well as technology adoption will remain key drivers shaping the future of Canada manufacturing domain. The Industrial Internet of Things connects machines to analyze production data and enable predictive maintenance.
