  4. 4. Trend 4: Cross-disciplinary technology integration …Integration aims for innovations based on user needs Cross-disciplinary Technology Integration. In terms of industrial development, individual technologies already cannot satisfy needs, driving the creation of major cross-disciplinary technology integrations that are more and more strongly connected to social and human aspirations.
  5. 5. Trend 5: Environmentalism …Value environment / low-impact manufacturing Agile Manufacturing and environmental concerns. Raising precision manufacturing ability with increasing automation and flexibility has already become a main method of competition between countries facing labor shortages. This kind of agile manufacturing is also necessary to meet today’s need for commodities of various types but small volume.
  6. 6. Trend 6: Natural Resource usage efficiency …Sustainable usage and allocation Natural Resource Usage Efficiency.
