Are Industrial Companies Cutting R&D and Capex Too Deeply?
en

Most industrial companies have reduced their spending on R&D and capital expenditures this year, compared with 2019, according to a recent Bain & Company survey of senior executives worldwide. It’s no surprise: The economic shock from the Covid-19 pandemic has made conserving cash and containing costs urgent priorities. Less than a third of companies surveyed have increased their R&D and capex budgets this year, while many have made dramatic cuts that could stunt their company’s growth potential once the economy rebounds.
