Advanced Manufacturing Industry

The opportunity

In a world of seismic shifts driven by geopolitics, economic instabilities, climate change, and tech innovation, the advanced manufacturing industry is emerging as a game-changer. Transforming the manufacturing cycle from the ground up can unleash untapped opportunities.


The advanced manufacturing ecosystem – including leading core manufacturers, disruptors (such as companies involved in robotics, industrial automation, and additive manufacturing) and enablers (such as software, research and testing) – is attracting a growing number of investments and new entrants.


An Advanced Manufacturing New Narrative

Advanced manufacturing solutions, once perceived merely as tools for increasing efficiency and productivity, warrant a new narrative. This is why the World Economic Forum’s Advanced Manufacturing Industry community developed a New Narrative, committing to five guiding principles and built on the idea of re-imagining five core tenets of global operations: resiliency, efficiency, sustainability, people and innovation.


It acts as a powerful tool for engaging, changing mindsets and increasing collaboration with various stakeholders through consistent, concise and compelling messaging supported by concrete examples. The community is ready and welcome you to engage.
