This report is a result of interviews with almost 90 industry, academic, and government experts in 7 countries (US, Japan, Germany, Korea, UK, Brazil, China) in four technology areas: semiconductors, advanced materials (with a focus on integrated computational materials engineering), additive manufacturing, and biomanufacturing (with a focus on synthetic biology). Over the next 10 years, advances in manufacturing will become networked. In 20 years, manufacturing will be data-intensive, and an advanced workforce will be needed to develop and maintain these advances.

Editor review:
The findings are not surprising but are likely interesting to many in the traditional manufacturing sectors. The insights on the impact of new raw materials might have some impact.
