Offshoring's second wave

Companies in the business of making car parts, communications gear, industrial machinery and medicine may soon join their compatriots in the electronics and apparel industries in tapping cheap overseas factory labor, according to a new McKinsey report.
The consulting company predicts that a new wave of offshore outsourcing is coming, and it's aimed straight at "skill-intensive" industries such as these. India and China stand to gain many of these jobs, the report said.
"Some industries will feel substantial pressure for the first time, and competition will lead many U.S. manufacturers to source products from these countries or even move plants abroad," McKinsey reports.
