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 sectors.
European governments and the EC are supporting 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.

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.
