Manufacturing within the scheme of nearshoring, or proximity, positions Mexico as one of the best destinations for this industry.
The nearshoring scheme is created when a company seeks to transfer work to companies that are less expensive and that are geographically closer to the main consumer markets of the goods they produce, with the objective of generating benefits in logistics and transportation.
Thus, companies can increase their responsiveness to their customers’ needs, with shorter delivery times and greater flexibility in the face of crises that may disrupt the supply chain.
Mexico is among the top 20 manufacturing centers within the nearshoring scheme worldwide.
Mexico is an attractive country for the nearshoring scheme because of its low labor costs, which has made the country an important manufacturer near the large U.S. consumer market, establishing itself as a key destination.
In addition to labor costs, service costs, infrastructure and trade openness are determining factors in making Mexico a key player in the nearshoring scheme.
Another aspect that can make up for labor costs is the automation of production processes, which is important in high cost markets and can provide protection against possible labor market disruptions.
Additionally, with the entry into force of the new United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), Mexico became a key player for global companies seeking to maintain a competitive position in the North American market.
The following are advantages of the Mexican industrial market:
