Frozen Capital in Industry
Frozen capital is defined as inefficiently deployed capital or untapped liquidity potential that could be freed up in industry across the globe. This paper focuses mainly on the manufacturing industry, which is a key wealth producing sector of economies. Many countries around the globe depend significantly on the manufacturing industry. Any limitation on the ability to invest in the latest technology and equipment has a disproportionately large influence over the ability of industry to compete on increasingly globalised markets, whether achieving additional efficiencies or funding new product development.
