INDIANAPOLIS - Some business experts in Indiana say manufacturers have survived the coronavirus pandemic better than other industries, even as some factories have been challenged by changes in consumer spending amid the public health crisis.
The Indianapolis Business Journal reports that because the companies that make up Indiana's key manufacturing industry are designated as essential businesses, most have remained in operation, even as stay-at-home orders forced other industries to pause operations.
According to the Associated Press, manufacturers last year accounted for 26.9% of Indiana's cross domestic product and more than 16% of the state's workforce.
Top officials with the Indiana Manufacturers Association, say the industry is doing well "compared with other sectors."
