UK manufacturing is in a good place. Out of every pound the UK spends on business R&D, manufacturers spend 69 pence. Around one seventh of UK investment goes into the sector.
In addition, with 2.7 million employees, more people work in manufacturing than in local government.
The UK is the world’s ninth-largest manufacturing nation. However, 70% of UK adults say Britain should aim to be a top-five manufacturing nation.
The good news is discrete manufacturing could grow by as much as 33% over the next couple of years. So, the UK could be in the top five by 2020.
If you’re a discrete manufacturer, there are probably a few questions you’re asking yourself. How do we tackle the challenges associated with growing? Once we’ve done so, how do we sustain our growth? How do we gain a competitive advantage?
Although technology isn’t the only solution to these problems, those organisations embracing the cloud are adapting to these challenges much quicker than their competitors.
