About the Survey

Understanding the challenges that today’s manufacturing executives foresee for the future not only helps leaders develop higher level of preparedness, but also fuels their vision and focuses their strategic plans to achieve competitive success and longevity for their companies in the years ahead.

That’s why the Manufacturing Leadership Council launched the Manufacturing in 2030 Project to enable manufacturers to envision what manufacturing might look like by the year 2030. As part of the project, the MLC surveyed more than 260 senior manufacturing industry executives, spanning multiple functional roles, and representing large, small, and medium-sized manufacturing companies from multiple industry sectors.

Armed with this rich combination of real-world predictions and forward-thinking insights, the MLC hopes that manufacturers can better plan their longer-term future and find ways to enhance their value, competitiveness, and contribution to society.
