Digitalized production technologies are transforming business models and changing market structures. Concepts like Industrie 4.0 and the Internet of Things represent a paradigm shift in business and society, generated by a growing number of increasingly connected and automated devices, machines and products.
Forecasts indicate that by 2020, 32 billion objects will be connected to the Internet. The economic impact of digitalization is staggering: studies show that in six economically important industries alone, Industrie 4.0 will give rise to productivity increases in the tens of millions by 2025.
The future of Industrie 4.0 rests upon our ability to pool knowledge and resources. Fraunhofer’s interdisciplinary systems expertise sparks new ideas that meet the challenges of a changing world – and helps create customized solutions right along the value chain.
