Market Trends: Manufacturing

See the latest news on manufacturing facilities and related pollution issues

The manufacturing industry has changed significantly over the last few decades, and even more so in recent years. Between the supply chain issues our country has experienced this past year (leading to changes in the manufacturing sector), and the increasing concern over emerging contaminants of concern used at many manufacturing facilities, insurance companies have changed the way they underwrite these insureds. Public awareness about the impact of pollution from manufacturing has also resulted in an uptick in lawsuits relating to air & water pollution and human health. Check out some recent news stories relating to these developing concerns.
