Decoding the Key Transformative Forces set to Reinvent the Economic Engine of Europe
European manufacturing is at a crossroads. The growing dominance of emerging markets and the rapidly changing consumer landscape are spearheading a major manufacturing renaissance in the region. Though Europe has been at the forefront of manufacturing excellence - its manufacturing sector currently accounts for 15.0% of its GDP and 33 million jobs - global transitions, such as declining energy prices, diminishing resources, new competition from emerging markets and an aging workforce, have diminished its growth. Rejuvenation of the existing manufacturing setup is Europe’s key agendum to encouraging industrial growth in an effective, efficient, and sustainable manner. ‘Manufacturing in Europe’ analyses the transformative forces already at work in Europe’s manufacturing scenario.

Executive Summary - Key Findings:

- The Europe2020 strategy aims to increase the contribution of manufacturing to European GDP from % in 2013 to % by 2020.

- The European structural and investment funds (ESIFs) has allocated XX Billion out of its XX Billion budget for ICT investments between 2014 and 2020.

- Poland remains the largest and strongest growing economy in Eastern Europe; it is expected to become the growth engine for Europe by 2025.

- Members of the European Union pledged to reduce green house gas emission by %, by 2030. Sweden has pledged to become first fossil-fuel-free nation by 2050.

- The demand for high-skilled workforce is set to expand, although overall manufacturing employment in the EU-28 economies is poised to witness a decline by 2025.

- The 3D printing market potential in Europe is estimated to be about XX Billion by 2025.

- Nanotechnology is a key area of focus for various R&D initiatives, such as the Graphene Flagship project which has an investment of XX Billion.
