The Industries of the Future series explores how emerging and enabling technologies are transforming key industries around the world, assessing the challenges and opportunities for UK businesses, and considering what more we can do to accelerate digital transformation so that innovation is applied to the real economy in ways that change lives.

Technology can also play a huge role in helping manufacturing businesses operate more sustainably. However, barriers to digital transformation continue to hold back UK manufacturing, including skills and access to investment.
