The upheaval of the pandemic has inevitably shaped the trends and outlook for the industrial sector. Areas that stand out as trends across sectors include accelerated reliance on digital technologies; growing concern about exposure to further trade issues; finding new growth markets or applications and making supply chains more robust.
The pandemic has helped accelerate reliance on digital technologies across sectors. In oil, gas, and chemical companies, remote monitoring and increased analytics have assisted in opening up new cost-saving avenues. For smart manufacturers, digital technologies have helped improve worker safety and have also facilitated ecosystems, which provide measurable benefits to manufacturers. In the power, utilities, and renewables sectors, the move to digital solutions is motivated by the growing role of distributed energy resources on the grid.
