Publication of the report on the survey 'Identification of disruptions in value and supply chains'
In March and April 2022, the European Cluster Collaboration Platform on behalf of the European Commission ran a survey to understand our current reality and disruptions in European value and supply chains. The aim of the survey was to understand the impact of Russia’s war on Ukraine and the geopolitical situation on companies and industrial ecosystems, and to look for approaches to find solutions.
The survey received answers from industrial stakeholders that are facing specific challenges in their supply chains or operations due to the war and related factors.
The results reflect main disruptions affecting industrial operations, estimations in terms of loss of input and market, and the potential solutions for disruptions in their supply chains.
The survey received 500 answers, 69% of them coming from large companies or SMEs. The analysis by industrial ecosystem shows that the most affected ecosystems are Agri-food (17.5%), followed by Construction (14%), Health (10.8%) and Mobility, Transport and Automotive (9.8%).
Regarding the affected stages of the supply chains, 27% of the responses highlighted disruptions in inbound logistics, identifying it as the most impacted stage.
Almost 40% of the large companies that responded suffered a high impact on loss of market. Amongst SMEs, the effect is less high: 33% of medium-sized companies and 36% of micro and small enterprises report high impact on their market.
Similarly, 61.24% of the large companies signal a high level of input loss, in contrast with 44% of SMEs who say they have been highly impacted by input losses.
