The Future of making things
Manufacturing is no longer simply about making physical products. Changes in consumer demand, the nature of products, the economics of production, and the economics of the supply chain have led to a fundamental shift in the way companies do business.
Customers demand personalization and customization as the line between consumer and creator continues to blur.
Added sensors and connectivity turn “dumb” products into “smart” ones, while products increasingly become platforms—and even move into the realm of services.
As technology continues to advance exponentially, barriers to entry, commercialization, and learning are eroding.
New market entrants with access to new tools can operate at much smaller scale, enabling them to create offerings once the sole province of major incumbents.
While large-scale production will always dominate some segments of the value chain, innovative manufacturing models—distributed small-scale local manufacturing, loosely coupled manufacturing ecosystems, and agile manufacturing—are arising to take advantage of these new opportunities.
