CEOs of manufacturing companies around the world offer their views in a survey.
UK CEOs are at the forefront of understanding what next-generation technologies can do for their business according to our latest global survey of manufacturing CEOs, pointing to an ambitious, but potentially bright future ahead for UK manufacturing.
In this 8th edition of the Global Manufacturing Outlook report, our findings from a survey of 300 global CEOs and interviews with manufacturing industry executives and KPMG partners show manufacturers have no time to waste in building a comprehensive digital transformation strategy. As Industry 4.0 lowers barriers to entry and traditional industries begin to blend and merge, undoubtedly manufacturing will look very different over the next decade, compared to the previous century.
While the scale of change may be unprecedented, it’s an exciting time to be a part of UK manufacturing. There may be a long journey ahead, but the opportunities for growth are there for those who embrace the new and grasp the benefits digital transformation will bring.
UK highlights include:
Manufacturing industry primed for cyber-attacks
Territorialism is top threat to growth
Investing in skills of the future
