KPMG’s team of consultants has worked with manufacturers for many years, bringing insight and experience to every project. Its services help address an organisation’s big issues and market priorities. These could include business model transformation, supply chain and distribution solutions, improving operational efficiencies or enterprise risk management. KPMG offers proactive, forward-thinking solutions that will help take advantage of the manufacturing sector’s growth potential and overcome major industry challenges.

According to KPMG’s research and analysis, the manufacturing sector will be the first to unlock the value of 5G, consisting of around 5% of a typical manufacturer’s annual revenue. With manufacturing making up 11% of the UK’S GVA, it is thought to be significant, not just for individual organisations but the national economy generally.

“5G and the Fourth Industrial Revolution hold the potential to revolutionise the manufacturing process,” says Stephen Cooper, Head of Industrial Manufacturing, KPMG UK. “Our conversations with clients highlight the need for C-suite manufacturers to take an informed, strategic approach, mapping out a clear journey towards transformation that will make the most of these innovative technologies and drive lasting performance improvement.”
