IDC Manufacturing 2020

Improving Competitiveness in Manufacturing: Digital, Automation, Effectiveness, Ecosystems

Wrocław, September 16 - September 17, 2020


Today, survival of the fittest is linked not to size or strength but to an ability to change — to move quickly, adapt, seize opportunities, and be agile. In their attempts to move faster, many manufacturers struggle due to a legacy of silos, and thus innovations stagnate with redundancy and inconsistency.

  • In essence, business strategy must now involve capturing a degree of digital transformation opportunity. Digital transformation’s impact is being felt across all functional domains and is changing how companies judge success and source talent. Creating differentiation from digital leaders and new digital native competitors is essential.
  • Across all industries, when quantified, digital transformation-related business activities are worth around $18.5 trillion per year — nearly 25% of global GDP. For the manufacturing industry, the opportunity is higher than in most other sectors, representing $4.5 trillion of the $18.5 trillion opportunity.

Because the stakes are so high, manufacturers have made concerted efforts to accelerate their digital transformation journeys.
