Global Industrial Manufacturing Coverage

The Industrial Manufacturing industry remains on the forefront in embracing new technologies including manufacturing 4.0, 3D printing, data-driven automation and robotics. The industry covers a wide variety of major manufacturing plants that include automotive assembly, lithium-ion battery mega factories, data centers, solar panels, wind turbines, aircraft manufacturing, ship building, and inland & deepwater ports among many others.

While Asia remains the leading manufacturer of much of the world’s goods and products, in the new post-pandemic world, other regions are pulling out all the stops to become more self-reliant and that has led to significant spending globally. This has been especially true within the Industrial Manufacturing industry due to its wide variety of types of manufacturing plants that are covered.
