The Engineering and Manufacturing industry will become increasingly global by 2020, with around 80% of manufacturers expecting to have international operations, according to Capgemini.

The Engineering & Manufacturing industry has been facing very tough competition for more than 10 years, and has been under pressure to reduce costs and improve production efficiency.

With the rise of emerging markets offering more cost effective and time saving solutions, the E & M industry must innovate and be more responsive to market changes. Furthermore, nowadays consumers are expecting product personalization and customization, meaning E & M must offer added value to ever more demanding clients. Advances in Robotics may help decrease production expenses, by reducing time and cost and adding more flexibility.

Furthermore, the progress of technology is increasing exponentially; it may generate a shortage of workers on the factory floor. The manufacturing sector will become highly skilled, and successful firms will hire qualified leaders and managers with solid commercial and technical expertise.

McKinsey & Co has stated that innovations create additional demand, and that global manufacturers will have substantial new opportunities for years to come – but in a much more uncertain environment.

Emerging technologies are overcoming these new challenges and providing a host of opportunities to rethink industrial plants, paving the way for new industries:

  • NTIC and the digital revolution: built-in sensors, connected machines and products, online communications, mobile devices, virtualization
  • New materials: composites, nanomaterials, etc…
  • New production techniques: additive manufacturing, metal casting, etc…
  • “Combinatorial processes”: recovery, integration, etc…
  • Human reinstated in industrial plants: robotics, augmented reality, etc…
