The paper begins by discussing the concepts which are associated with the topic and the various progressions to which it occurs. The drivers to which have caused repatriation to the UK are similar to other counties but a few factors have being identified to be specific to just the UK. Hence, the factors to which drives reshoring were addressed while UK specific drivers such as brand name, quality, skill base and regulated legal frameworks which protects manufacturers were elaborated upon; some barriers which included high labour cost, taxes and energy cost were also identified by manufacturers whom considered repatriation to the UK.
