Capital goods and materials are essential for all businesses to meet consumer demand. In addition, the two can accelerate corporate innovation and diversify products and services. At the same time, Industry 4.0 trends continue to develop, with technologies such as sustainability, lightweighting, 3D printing, surface engineering, smart materials, nano- formulations, and advanced composites becoming more popular. This trend is motivating companies to explore new ways to remain globally competitive.
