Throughout 2023, smart manufacturing technologies, such as digital twins, 3D modelling, and IoT, were used to strengthen the metaverse.

In 2024, Deloitte anticipates that these technologies will be used to ‘scale manufacturing improvements across disparate processes and people’, as well as in their decarbonisation journeys.

Supply chain unpredictability, geopolitical uncertainty and rising costs will mean that smart factory technologies such as AI, 5G, IoT, data analytics and cloud computing will be utilized to help provide real-time insights and end-to-end visibility.
