Manufacturing is a vital part of the global national & local economy, but it is not immune to political, economic and technology driven challenges. In 2023, the industry will continue to face new and ongoing obstacles that will impact production, profitability, and growth.
From changes in consumer demand to technological advancements, the manufacturing industry is part of a dynamic and ever-changing landscape. A number of key challenges face the manufacturing industry around technology, data security & high customer expectations:
Technology: The sector faces increased challenges from automation and other advanced technology (e.g. Artificial Intelligence, Augmented and Virtual Reality, 3D printing). Robotic technology continues to improve, allowing manufacturers to produce goods promptly and efficiently. While this is great news for consumers, it is also making it more difficult for manufacturers to compete in their industry if they aren’t able to keep up with the latest and greatest technologies, but their competitors are.
Data security: Data security remains a critical challenge for the manufacturing industry in 2023. With an increasing reliance on technology and digitalization, manufacturers are collecting and storing vast amounts of sensitive data. This includes everything from customer information to trade secrets, making the industry a prime target for cyber attacks. Companies face financial penalties for data breaches, as well as regulatory pressure to protect personal data. To address these risks, companies must invest in cybersecurity measures such as firewalls, encryption, and threat detection systems, as well as develop and enforce data security policies. Failure to secure data can result in financial losses, legal consequences, and damage to reputation
With the rise of e-commerce and the increasing availability of products and information online, customers are not only demanding a higher convenience of products, but also more personalized experiences. Meeting these expectations requires significant investments in technology, and failure to do so could result in decreased market share, reputation damage, and lower profits for manufacturing companies.
