TPP, is it beneficial to every industry?

The article posted in the OPS Rules website (http://www.opsrules.com/supply-chain-optimization-blog/the-supply-chain-impact-of-tpp) points out how the supply chain would be impacted by the TPP. The breadth of the agreement is without doubt huge, considering it will impact 40% of the global trade. But not every country and more specifically every industry benefit the same. The article in specific highlights that the TPP won’t benefit the US Automakers but will definitely benefit the Japanese counterparts. On the other hand, the Shoe industry is split between the benefits of TPP for importing after manufacturing outside the USA and making the products within the country. More over the currency volatility will play an important role too but that has not been considered in the agreement.

This increases the task on the hands of supply chain specialists to figure out which industry and supply chain will be impacted favorably and which will not!
