The Office of Director of National Intelligence, National Intelligence Manager for Science and Technology asked the Institute for Defense Analyses to identify emerging global trends in advanced manufacturing.  This study identifies key worldwide, emerging trends in advanced manufacturing. Over the next 10 years, networking will drive advances in manufacturing.  In 20 years, manufacturing is expected to advance to new frontiers, resulting in an increasingly automated and data-intensive manufacturing sector that will likely replace traditional manufacturing as we know it today. Potential developments in advanced manufacturing could help sharply strengthen the American presence in manufacturing.  To make the most of expected advances in manufacturing, the United States will need to make a major commitment to develop, maintain, and upgrade workforce skills.
