Market dynamics are shifting in unpredictable ways. There are many forces at play: climate change, political upheaval, growing economic inequality, rapidly evolving consumer behaviour, multipolar geopolitical shifts, the rise of China, and of course, the relentless march of automation across every industry. Reshoring in particular will become ever more important. Wrapped up within these massive and often unprecedented forces is opportunity.
For most manufacturers who want to gain more market share, the choice for the future is clear: you must be agile. With automation you can compete. With agility you can win. And as these cycles of change recur more frequently, in the future agility will increasingly mean standardized, modular solutions capable of a wide breadth of tasks—much like the evolution of the computer and mobile phone. Machines will need to do more than one thing and do it quickly. Agility will win the race.
