3 ways to more confidently invest in metals technology

For many metals leaders, 2023 has ushered in a new season of uncertainty. Higher interest rates and near-constant talk of a recession have them feeling nervous and looking to take a cost-conscious approach to decision-making.

It’s too soon to tell what the future might bring for metals companies, but one trend that has been emerging is an increase in metals technology investments among those wishing to build a more sustainable future for their business.

High stakes for metals technology investments

As many metals business leaders consider investing more in technology, they face the challenge of choosing the right technology for their business needs and feel the pressure to make every investment dollar count. But knowing which metals technology investments to make can be challenging. With so many options available, investing in technology can be confusing to navigate, and there are too many horror stories of what can go wrong.

Thankfully, a tool exists that can help ease the decision-making process.

For more than a decade, Crowe has provided metals leaders with an annual technology in metals survey report (see the 2022 report) that offers insights into how technology is being used to advance the digital transformation of the industry. Metals leaders can use the data and insights from the survey to guide their investment decisions and feel more confident as they step into the future.

3 survey benefits that can help metals leaders make more confident investments in metals technology

1. Know what industry peers are doing

The survey results combine data collected from metals executives across the industry, providing a comprehensive look at how the industry is viewing critical topics and decisions. As survey responses are compiled, clear trends start to emerge, and metals leaders can easily see where they measure up against industry peers.

2. Gain confidence in knowing which metals technology fits best

When metals leaders have an inside look into where other companies are investing, they gain a greater understanding of the stakes and where they might need to increase investment to keep up with industry trends. With the acceleration of digital transformation within the industry, metals leaders should be vigilant about not falling behind.

3. Stand out from the competition

With the survey insights, metals company leaders easily can see where their companies might be ahead of the curve and which metals technology other companies have not yet adopted. This insight highlights areas where they can lean into what sets them apart to customers and gain an edge in the market.
