Only 10% of global manufacturing companies are championing digital transformation – PwC

Industry 4.0 is rapidly transforming the manufacturing sector and digital transformation has been on many a CEO’s agenda for a number of years, but despite this, only a small group of companies is in a position to gain real competitive advantage from this operations revolution, says PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC). PwC’s ‘Strategy & Global Digital Operations Study 2018’ shows that only 10% of global manufacturing companies are considered to be ‘digital champions’, while almost two-thirds have barely or not yet begun the digital journey.
