During the last decade, Mexico’s industrial market has seen significant, continuous growth in size, production, and exports. The 2020 pandemic caused major disruptions worldwide, grinding global economies to a halt. Mexico turned the corner from 2019 with rapid activity in anticipation of the USMCA implementation in July.
