The manufacturing industry has enjoyed a decade of healthy growth since the financial crisis. But now a new wave of megatrends, ranging from new technologies to pressing environmental issues, will cause fundamental transformation – not only of the industry itself but also of the way we work and live. Firms will need to rethink the way they operate in order to seize the opportunities these megatrends bring. Our 2017 edition provides a broad overview of which steps companies need to take now to be prepared for the challenges ahead.
PERSPECTIVES ON MANUFACTURING INDUSTRIES is Oliver Wyman’s annual journal representing viewpoints on industrial companies’ challenges and trends, as well as their opportunities and potential courses of action.
