New Business Models enabled by Advanced Manufacturing

As organizations in the manufacturing and production ecosystem are rethinking and reimagining their business and operating models to rebuild from covid-19, there is now a window of opportunity for shaping more resilient, sustainable and inclusive ways of creating value to all stakeholders.

Firms that emerge from the pandemic disruption will have some choices to make.


  • What is the role of advanced manufacturing and production technologies in shaping new operating and business models?

  • What are the successful and responsible business models that companies should adopt, scale or develop?

  • What are the operating and business model innovations worth keeping once the crisis will be over?

  • What new public-private partnerships are needed to inform the next generation of industrial policies and strategies to build resilience, inclusiveness and sustainability?

The organizations engaged in the World Economic Forum’s Platform for Shaping the Future of Advanced Manufacturing and Production are working together to advance the above priorities and support an inclusive transformation of businesses across industries and geographies.
