Ed Moss, spokesman for the Manufacturing Institute, said that there is "certainly" positivity returning to the industry as orders increase and the reputation of British produce is restored in the face of some poor quality overseas alternatives.
His comments follow the publication of a report by the Confederation of British Industry, which noted that the improving demand for goods made in the UK has boosted manufacturer expectations regarding output growth.
Ms Moss explained: "We have to admit that because of the recessionary times we're not all jumping up and down, but certainly there seems to be a little bit of buoyancy – possibly related to a little bit of a return to what I've nicknamed the 'British lion' effect."
Last week, Bank of Scotland chief economist Donald MacRae said that the increased order levels seen in the Scottish manufacturing sector in January has been reflected in the creation of new jobs in the industry, which includes sales recruitment positions.
