Reshoring cases

The reshoring database contains factsheets with data on reshoring events reported in the national media in each EU member state. Active data collection for the reshoring monitor commenced in February 2016 and some earlier reshoring cases (2014-15) have been identified from earlier data collection activities by the research team. The database was updated monthly until the end of 2018 (end of the project).

Within the scope of this initiative, the following cases of reshoring are considered:

  • Companies that reshore to their home country (within the EU) value chain activities previously offshored to another country (e.g. manufacturing by a German firm previously offshored to China or to France and now returning to Germany).

  • Companies that reshore to any EU country value chain activities previously offshored to a non-EU country (e.g. manufacturing by a German firm previously offshored to China and now returning to Italy).
