There is a trend in highly industrialized countries to move production of goods to less developed ones, caused by the lower wages prevailing there. This trend is, however, not quite predominant in the capital goods/equipment industry. While consumer goods are made in the thousands or in the millions, like computers, cars or phones, capital equipment is made in very short series, maybe 10 -50 of the same machines per year.
In addition, many times those are not identical machines as they are customized to a certain degree for each customer.
The manufacturers of capital equipment therefore have unique needs regarding their workforce: (1) they need a close cooperation between the engineering/design departments, which are all in the West and the production departments to make sure that each customized machine is done well; (2) the workers making those machines need to be highly qualified to understand the intricacies of the design and the way to manufacture the equipment. This means that many of capital goods producers still have their main production facilities in the highly developed countries.
