A landscape for the future of high value manufacturing in the UK

This study sets out to understand the global manufacturing context in which UK companies must compete and how that context is expected to evolve over the next 15-20 years. It draws upon a wide consultation with industry, academe and institutions, to identify competencies that can allow companies to successfully deliver innovation in manufacturing across a broad range of industry sectors. It provides a landscape against which industrial companies, government agencies and other key stakeholders can develop a shared view of emerging opportunities that can create long-term value within the UK economy.
