What is the Small Manufacturing Index?

Xometry’s Small Manufacturing Index, which takes the pulse of small- to mid-sized manufacturing shops every quarter, surveys manufacturers both inside and outside our partner network on whether they expect to see growth in business and hiring compared to previous quarters and years. These small- to mid-sized manufacturers represent more than 190,000 companies in an over $50 billion market.
