2021 B2B Manufacturing Report

Manufacturers get it—the global COVID-19 pandemic changed the very nature of how U.S. companies do business. What was once physical and manual—in-person sales calls, manual order processing, swinging by a distribution branch for an order pick-up—is now entirely more digital.

And this trend is not a temporary one. Manufacturers are starting to understand that business buyers are now making digital purchasing a permanent change in how they procure products and services for their organizations.

The pandemic had an impact on manufacturers’ B2B ecommerce sales. In 2020, B2B ecommerce sales for manufacturers grew year over year by 6.7% to about $458.7 billion from $430.0 billion in 2019, based on an estimate by Digital Commerce 360.

The certainty for U.S. manufacturers is this: The coronavirus will permanently accelerate the pace of B2B ecommerce, creating digital winners and losers in its wake. The 2021 B2B Manufacturing Report gives all the players a chance to read the scorecard, get into the game in a bigger way—or get left behind.
