In a global manufacturing outlook report, 49% of manufacturers surveyed were reported to be investing 6% of their revenues in R&D and innovation, in a push to transform their businesses. Asian manufacturing companies surveyed exhibited the highest investment expectations, with a majority of respondents from China, Japan and India indicating they would spend more than six per cent of their revenues on technology and innovation. 25% of the respondents have already poured investment in avant garde technologies, such as 3D printing.
Riding on a wave of renaissance in the industry, MTA2017 – Asia’s premier manufacturing technology industry will kick off a host of new features - The Optics & Photonics Innovation Hub, The Semiconductor Innovation Centre, and a 3D Printing Seminar.
“As manufacturing continues to evolve and value creation has become an integral component of the change process, many traditional manufacturing businesses in the Asian region need to become agile and embrace change. The new features, along with the recurring Capabilities Hub, are designed to serve industry players who are looking to leverage on technology and innovation to maintain their market leadership and stay ahead of the change curve,” said William Lim, project director of Machinery Events at Singapore Exhibition Services, organizer of MTA2017.
