Reshoring/insourcing decisions have been widely discussed in the popular press, yet coverage of these topics in the academic literature is limited. The purpose of this research is twofold. First, it seeks to explore the underlying drivers of reshoring and insourcing decisions to move beyond anecdotal evidence to theory-based analysis. Second, it seeks to provide an agenda for future research to further analyze the impact of reshoring and insourcing decisions on supply chain structures. Through an in-depth examination of the literature and grounded in TCE and OBB, a theoretical framework of reshoring and insourcing decisions is developed and supported by practical examples from business press coverage. The ensuing analysis of the framework yields seven future research implications.
