By Kerstin Hinck

Das neue Wissen um die Fragilität der Abhängigkeiten in der Weltwirtschaft, ruft in den Chefetagen foreign agierender Firmen Reaktionen bei den Verlagerungs- bzw. Rückverlagerungsaktivitäten hervor.

Im dritten Kapitel werden Statistiken und cause zu Verlagerungs- und Rückverlagerungsaktivitäten vorgestellt.

Die Globalisierung ist eine globale, wirtschaftliche und politische Vernetzung, die mit einer kulturellen Annäherung einhergeht. Aufgrund der verbesserten Kommunikationstechnologien, günstigeren Transportkosten und der Beseitigung von Grenzen können Dienstleistungen, Güter, Wissen und Kapital in immer größerem Umfang und immer kürzeren Zeit ausgetauscht werden. Transnationale Unternehmen (TNC) sind die treibenden Kräfte dieses Phänomens. Im Rahmen der wirtschaftlichen Internationalisierung entstand ein neuer globaler Wettbewerb in denen TNCs konkurrieren bzw. um Marktanteile in Zielländern kämpfen wollen.

Durch die starke Vernetzung des Finanzsystems und der noch fehlenden supranationalen Regulierungsrichtlinien hatte die in den united states entstandene Subprime Kreditkrise eine Wirtschaftskrise mit globalen Auswirkungen verursacht, welche aufgrund der resultierenden Zurückhaltung der Banken hinsichtlich der Kreditvergabe auch auf die Realwirtschaft übergegangen ist.

Insbesondere in Krisenzeiten fanden in der Vergangenheit Produktionsverlagerungen mit dem Motiv der Kosteneinsparung statt. Aktuell scheinen die Unternehmen in der Wirtschaftskrise vorrangig bestrebt zu sein, Kapazitäten an bestehenden Standorten zusammenzuhalten; die Produktionsverlagerungen befinden sich auf dem niedrigsten Stand seit 15 Jahren. Die Rückverlagerungen an den Standort Deutschland befinden sich auf einem stabilen point. Statistisch kommt auf jede dritte Verlagerung eine Rückverlagerung.
