After several years of strong growth and profitability, the metals industry experienced a massive shock in the global financial crisis of 2008-2009—and it is still recovering from that shock. Market demand remains below 2007 levels in many regions, as does profitability for most producers. In many regions, the outlook for the next several years is not especially promising: Slower market growth, volatility, excess capacity, and limited leverage with raw-material suppliers will continue to put pressure on the margins of metals producers.
The Accenture metals group has more than 1,500 professionals working worldwide. We have worked in all segments of the ferrous and non-ferrous value chains, from mining and processing to finishing and distribution—and we have incorporated this experience into leading-practice process models and other tools.
As we work with metals companies, we apply field tested delivery methods that help verify quality and reduce risk, while typically accelerating implementation time frames. Our professionals draw on our Metals Centers of Excellence network, with locations in Spain, South Africa, Brazil, India and China. And because these centers are part of Accenture’s 50-Center Global Delivery Network, we can work with clients in seamless, multi-national teams to deliver consistent, high-quality services across their locations. And we extend these strengths through our long-term relationships with leading solution and content providers, such as Oracle, SAP and Microsoft.
