SWMAS Q2 2021 NATIONAL REPORT
Reporting on July, August, and September 2021 – surveyed in October 2021

What does this quarter’s report reveal?
Encouragingly, for the first time in over a year, the percentage of respondents trading at increased levels is higher than the percentage who reported reduced trade (when compared to their pre-covid position). However, supply chain issues are still impacting SME manufacturers. These challenges, alongside problems retaining and recruiting staff, are affecting their ability to meet heightened demand.
