This document contains the detailed findings for the manufacturing sector from PAC’s “SITSI® CxO Investment Survey 2020”, in which IT decision makers in user companies all over the world were interviewed to get their views on current IT trends, key requirements and investment plans. The survey was conducted in October 2020.

The findings are broken down by region, by company size (<10; 10-99; 100-499; 500-999; 1,000-1,999; 2,000-4,999; 5,000-9,999; 10,000 or more employees), by sub-sector (automotive; aerospace & defense; electrical engineering & high tech; mechanical & plant engineering; construction; metal; chemicals; pharmaceuticals; oil, gas and mining; food & beverage, tobacco; textile, paper; agriculture, forestry and fishing), and by LoB vs. IT.

In the manufacturing sector, 582 companies participated in the survey. The interviews were conducted with IT department managers and line of business managers who are involved in decisions concerning (local) IT budgets, IT investments or IT sourcing. The survey sample comprised different sized companies from all over the world.

This Excel document accompanies PAC’s InSight Analysis report “CxO Survey - Investment Priorities 2020 – Manufacturing” (part 1 and part 2), which presents and analyzes the key findings from the survey for the manufacturing sector.
