During four decades, APAC led by China, has proved to be the global factory , driven by low labor costs and globalization. With the Industry 4.0 revolution, which depends more on employees’ skills rather than cheap labor and western economies Industry 4.0 investments the tide is reversing. In order to mitigate this threat, APAC emerging economies, South Korea, Japan and China invest heavily in the 4th industrial revolution to compete with western economies Industry 4.0 ramifications. They provide government funding for Industry 4.0 projects, R&D, subsidies and tax incentives to Industry 4.0 investors.

Most of the world technology giants (see Figure 2) that recognize 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 Industry 4.0 competition is not only about technology or offering the best products, but also, about the companies that collect appropriate data and combine it to offer premium digital services. Those who know what the customer wants and can forecast consumer demand, will provide the information to develop an unfair competitive advantage.
According to the report, China is unique in the breadth and size of its Industry 4.0 strategy and funding; the PRC government commenced in 2015 the Made in China 2025 scheme, specifying ten industries including semiconductors, aerospace, agricultural equipment, quantum computing and other sectors, which are the core of government planning.
The PRC Made in China plan, an industrial-policy program is derived in part from Germany’s Industry 4.0 model, which focuses on creating a helpful environment through training and policy support but leaves business decisions to companies. China’s version is much more hands-on. The plan includes 1,013 state-guided funds , endowed with $807B, much of it for Made in China industries.
The program includes a manufacturing-subsidy program, spread across 62 distinct initiatives. According to the report, China will dominate 42% of the APAC Industry 4.0 market by 2023.
In India, the world’s fastest growing economy, it is estimated that the industrial sector will embrace Industry 4.0, and transform the Indian manufacturing economy.
Japan is a highly robotized country and the world´s predominant industrial robot manufacturer with a market share of 52%. To address its 21st century economic, social and industrial challenges Japan launched its Society 5.0 program. The Society 5.0 program includes (but is not limited to) Japan’s Industry 4.0 program.
In the next decades, Asia Pacific businesses will establish global networks that incorporate their machinery, warehousing systems and production facilities in the shape of cyber-physical systems. 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.
The Asia Pacific Industry 4.0 transformation will change long-held dynamics in the balance of economic power between the Far East, the U.S. and Europe.
