Manufacturing: A New Era of Opportunity & Challenge

Foresight project looking at the long-term picture for the UK manufacturing sector between now and 2050.

The manufacturing sector makes significant contributions to the economy, accounting for over 10% of the UK’s gross value and employing around 2.5 million people. It accounts for more than half of the UK’s exports (53%) and around 3 quarters of business research and development (72%).

This project - from the Government Office for Science and Department for Business, Innovation & Skills - looked at the long-term picture for the UK manufacturing sector up to 2050, investigating global trends and drivers of change. It explored how the UK could maximise these opportunities and developed an evidence base to help policy-makers prepare for the challenges ahead.
