The United States is the world’s second largest manufacturer, with a 2017 industrial output reaching a record level of approximately $2.2 trillion. The U.S. manufacturing industry employed 12.4 million people in March 2017. Manufacturing output has been growing more slowly in the United States than in China, South Korea, Germany, and Mexico, but more rapidly than in most European countries and Canada.
China displaced the United States as the largest manufacturing country in 2010.
U.S. manufacturers spend far more on R&D than those in any other country, but manufacturers’ R&D spending is rising more rapidly in several other countries. Manufacturers spend approximately 11% of value added on R&D an increase of more than 3% since 2002. A large proportion of U.S. manufacturers’ R&D takes place in high technology sectors, such as pharmaceutical, electronics and aircraft manufacturing, whereas in most other countries the largest share of R&D occurs in medium-technology sectors such as automotive, and machinery manufacturing.
Restoring manufacturing jobs to the United States struggling Rust Belt communities and corporate tax cuts were two of President Donald Trump’s biggest campaign promises. It is expected that Trump’s administration will follow Obama’s (2011) Industry 4.0 policy, the formation of the Advanced Manufacturing Partnership (AMP), a national effort bringing together industry and the Federal Government to invest in Industry 4.0 technologies.
The Federal Government and the private sector invest in Industry 4.0 to increase the American industrial base which has been taken over by China and low labor cost countries in Mexico, Brazil and Asia-Pacific. During Trump administration’s first year, American factories are adding jobs at the fastest pace since 2014.

Since 2002, large-scale transfers of production to other parts of the world have resulted in a sharp increase in the U.S. dependency on imports. The number of people employed in the industry fell by 33% between 2002 and 2015. However, there have been some signs of a gradual recovery since 2010 with rises in both domestic and export demand. The U.S. media has been quick to seize on terms such as re-shoring and insourcing boom to describe what it already perceives as a fundamental change.
Figure 2 – U.S. Manufacturing Employment 2000-2017
Every dollar earned in the U.S. manufacturing contributes $1.4 to the economy; and approximately 2 jobs are created in other fields for every manufacturing job. Therefore, efforts to reinvent U.S. manufacturing by leveraging Industry 4.0 technologies to create smart factories will have a substantial impact on U.S. economic growth.
The Industry 4.0 wave of cyber-physical manufacturing is done with intelligent machines and industrial IoT linked supply chains, which are forcing all industries to convert their Industry 2.0 – 3.0 businesses into Industry 4.0 infrastructure.
According to a HSRC meta research***, 63% of the respondents to HSRC, BCG, PwC, The Economist Intelligence Unit, Roland Berger, Rittal and Siemens (including 4000 industry responds) state that their business future depends on Industry 4.0 transformation. Manufacturing executives from all industries have squarely identified and, in most cases, begun addressing the need for industrial transformation. Those respondents that have implemented Industry 4.0 conversion have already seen improvements and expect more progress soon.
The global Industry 4.0 market race is led by U.S. tech giants (see Figure 4), which have invested billions of dollars in Industry 4.0 core technologies, products R&D, M&A, commercialization & internal use. The transformation of the 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.

The Industry 4.0 transformation will change long-held dynamics in commerce and global economic balance of power.
In the next decades, American 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.

Industry 4.0 holds immense potential for the American economy. Smart factories allow individual customer requirements to be met, meaning that even one-off items can be manufactured profitably. In 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.
This facilitates fundamental improvements in the industrial processes involved in manufacturing, engineering, material purchasing & usage, supply chain and life cycle management, predictive maintenance and real-time management overview. The smart factories that have already appeared across most industries employ a completely novel approach to production. Smart products are uniquely identifiable, they can be located at all times, know their own history, current status and alternative routes to achieving their target state. The embedded manufacturing systems are vertically networked with business processes within factories and enterprises and horizontally connected to dispersed value networks that can be managed in real time from the moment an order is placed right through to outbound logistics. In addition, they both enable and require end-to-end engineering across the entire value chain
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 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 appropriate data and combine them 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.
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 transformation of the 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.
