Europe is at the end of the beginning of the industry 4.0 revolution. The proliferation of industrial sensors, the expansion of radio communication and networks, the deployment of intelligent industrial robots and Industrial IoT as well as increased computing power and the development of artificial intelligence and big data analytics, will transform the way products are manufactured in Europe.

The industrial sector is important to the European economy, comprising more than 2 million manufacturing companies; it is responsible for over 33 million jobs and over 80% of the European exports.

This 4th industrial revolution holds the promise of improved flexibility in manufacturing, product customization, increased speed, predictive maintenance, better quality and improved productivity across Europe. However, to capture these benefits, enterprises will need to invest in equipment, information and communication technologies and data analysis as well as the integration of data flows throughout the industrial value chain.

Some of the world technology giants recognizing the huge business opportunities of the Industry 4.0, invested in R&D, Commercialization of Industry 4.0 technologies and acquired smaller technology companies especially in the AI and big data sector.

The European Industry 4.0 market share race is led by the global tech. giants (such as Siemens, SAP, Microsoft, HP, Intel, TI, Alphabet-Google, Samsung and IBM) who have invested billions of dollars in Industry 4.0 products R&D, M&A and Commercialization & Internal Use. The transformation of the global economy, being brought about by Industry 4.0, means that business processes such as supply, manufacturing, maintenance, delivery and customer service will all be connected via the Industrial IoT systems. These extremely flexible value networks will require new forms of collaboration between companies, both nationally and globally.

However, the relative contribution of industry to the EU economy is declining. The European economy has lost a third of its industrial base over the past four decades. This de-industrialization is partly due to the globalization and the rise of manufacturing in other parts of the globe (especially China). In response to this deterioration, the EU set a target that manufacturing should represent 20% of total value-added in the EU by 2020. As part of its new Digital Single Market Strategy, the European Commission is interested in helping all industrial sectors exploit modern technologies and manage a transition to a smart, Industry 4.0 industrial system. European governments and the private sector invest tens of billions in Industry 4.0 projects each year to increase their industrial base, which has been taken over by low labor cost countries to maintain their industrial base. European governments, also fund Industry 4.0 projects, R&D, and provide subsidies and tax incentives to Industry 4.0 investors.

European governments and the EC support Industry 4.0 through investments in R&D, infrastructure, tax incentives and Industry 4.0 projects subsidies. Member states are also sponsoring national initiatives such as Industria 4.0 in Italy and Portugal, Industrie 4.0 in Germany, the Industrie du future in France and Catapult centers in the UK. Industry 4.0 may help to reverse the decline in industrialization and increase the total value-added from manufacturing to a targeted 20% of all value-added by 2020.

Europe’s multi trillion USD manufacturing sector, yield over 80% of exports and 80% of the private sector R&D, and as such is one of the key elements of the European sustainable economic growth. Moreover, Due to the globalization and low labor costs in Asia Pacific, the relative contribution of industry to the EU economy is declining. The European economy has lost a 33% of its industrial base over the past four decades. This de-industrialization , a process which is also present in other developed economies, is in part due to the rise of manufacturing in other parts of the world (particularly China), the relocation of labor-intensive manufacturing to countries with lower labor costs and global supply chains with suppliers located abroad.
In a series face-to-face interviews HSRC conducted by Q4 2017 with European executives of 76 multi-billion manufacturing primes we learned that:

64 of the respondents said they are fully aware of the risks of a wait and see how industry 4.0 evolves policy
35 did not know the underlying business models of the Industry 4.0 and its long-term implications for their industry
14 responders stated that their enterprises are already in some stage of conversion to Industry 4.0.
Even those convinced of the value of Industry 4.0 foresaw a series of barriers ahead.
According to the report:
The Industry 4.0 transformation will change long-held dynamics in commerce and European and global economic balance of power. In the next decades, businesses will establish European and global networks that incorporate their machinery, warehousing systems and production facilities in the shape of Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS). In the manufacturing environment, these cyber-physical systems comprise smart machines, storage systems and production facilities capable of autonomously exchanging information, triggering actions and controlling each other independently. These changes add to the traditional business pressure on manufacturers, but also offer unprecedented opportunities to optimize production processes.

End-to-end transparency is provided over the manufacturing process, facilitating optimized decision-making. Industry 4.0 will also result in new ways of creating value and novel business models. It will provide European start-ups and SMEs with the opportunity to develop and provide downstream services.
The Industry 4.0 competition is not only about technology or offering the best products, but also, about the companies that gather the best data and combine them to offer the best digital services. Those who know what the customer wants, and can forecast consumer demand, will provide the information to develop an unfair competitive advantage.

The major winners might be those that control Industry 4.0 platforms , software layers that syndicate various devices, information and services, on top of which other firms can build their own offerings.

The European Industry 4.0 market will undergo a major transformation in 2018-2023 through the following drivers:

The risk of continued de-industrialization of Europe
Global competition in the manufacturing sector is becoming fiercer and fiercer
Unprecedented opportunities to optimize production processes and customer services
European governments and their private sector invest in Industry 4.0 to increase their industrial base taken by low labor cost economies
Government and EU funded Industry 4.0 projects, R&D, subsidies and tax incentives
Industry 4.0 offers start-ups and SMEs the opportunity to develop and provide downstream services
Industry 4.0 dynamic business and engineering processes enable last-minute changes to production and deliver the ability to respond flexibly to disruptions and failures on behalf of suppliers and customers
Industry 4.0 provides the link to the consumer, and can forecast consumer demand
