Insurance for the Manufacturing Industry

Australia’s manufacturing sector is a diverse industry that is currently experiencing a period of rapid change, as technological advancements and the impact of globalization affect how businesses operate and trade.

As a significant driver of the national economy (the Australian manufacturing industry contributes around $100 billion to GDP annually, and employs over 900,000 people), it is important that manufacturing businesses choose the right cover to protect their operations.

At MKP Insurance, we understand the unique risks that arise in the manufacturing industry and can tailor solutions to protect your business.

Identifying Key Risks

Manufacturers face a range of complex risks. These include lost production time due to mechanical issues, supply chain failures, and product recalls. Risks will also arise that are specific to the product that a business manufactures.

Workers compensation is a major risk for all manufacturing businesses. According to icare, the manufacturing industry has the highest number of workers’ insurance claims compared to other industries.

Cyber crime is also a growing threat to manufacturing businesses. Hackers pose a risk to both systems and machine functions, as well as confidential business data. Intellectual property theft, interruption of operations and direct theft of funds are three of the biggest cyber risks facing manufacturers.
