Future development of New Zealand’s industry 4.0

  • The comprehensive report "Beyond commodities: Manufacturing into the future", published by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment of New Zealand, highlighted several current key strengths and challenges faced by the manufacturing sector of New Zealand. The report showed the highly diversified manufacturing sector in New Zealand but also identified some challenges, for example, the lack of scale relative to some international competitors. It also highlighted the increasingly digitised and automated manufacturing sector, namely Industry 4.0. Industry 4.0 refers to the current trend of automation and data exchange in manufacturing technologies such as 3D printing and artificial intelligence. These technologies improve the flexibility and profitability of manufacturers as they can utilize the technology to differentiate themselves through innovation, quality, brand and service. Economic development minister David Parker commented and suggested the New Zealand government to engage in establishing a new policy platform to promote Industry 4.0 in New Zealand and create a competitive edge in the international market.
