The sports and entertainment market is undergoing significant change spurred on by the global pandemic, accelerating trends in digital adoption, and shifting cultural attitudes and behaviors.

Together, these changes have the potential to redistribute power within the sports and entertainment market and create new pathways for unprecedented growth.

The US federal government has now invested billions in bringing manufacturing back home. In response, manufacturing titans, including Intel, Samsung, and TSMC, currently have new US fabrications under construction. The Biden Administration's 2021's report, Building Resilient Supply Chains, Revitalizing American Manufacturing, and Fostering Broad-Based Growth, arose in response to escalating supply chain disruption and semi-conductor shortages. Many would say it reads like a virtual manifesto for US manufacturing self-sufficiency.
At Pivot International, we are a US-based one-source product development firm with advanced DFM expertise and 320,000 square feet of global EMS capability, including options in the Philippines and the American Midwest. We are proud to carry on the Made In the USA tradition while providing clients with globally diversified sourcing solutions. As we continue contributing to the industry conversation on the future of American manufacturing, we hold the position that US interests are best served with a balanced perspective on the benefits vs. risks of reshoring.

Developing any complex product comes with challenges, but one can argue that medtech takes these challenges to their limit. And understandably. Few other product categories face stakes measured not only in market metrics but in human lives. By definition, medtech occupies an intersection of opposing tensions (this vs. that questions) that represent uniquely formidable obstacles to successful development. The key to success lies in taking an integrative, whole-systems approach to reconciling these tensions.

Semiconductors supply shortages are about far more than supply chain disruption. They have exposed complex geopolitical risks and sustainability issues that require systemic coordination to solve. Without a sophisticated accounting of the broader issues that transcend supply chain bottlenecks, the crisis will remain intractable and likely escalate.
