On the verge of the Industry 4.0 revolution, measurement in manufacturing technology, alongside connectivity and big data, is playing an enabler role to transform manufacturing process into highly flexible and intelligent operations.

The UK has been a leader in measurement in manufacturing technology development since the first industrial revolution. Many of the key manufacturing technologies have been invented in the UK, and the UK is still a key global innovation centre in advanced manufacturing technologies.

China is now the world’s largest manufacturing hub and forecasts project the Chinese manufacturing industry as the most positive for continued growth. Therefore, China presents huge export opportunity for UK measurement products into their manufacturing. In addition, for UK companies to stay ahead of innovation in developing future manufacturing technologies, it is important to understand the development trends of Chinese manufacturing industry by engaging with potential customers in China.
