Industrialization is the process by which a society or country transforms from an agricultural or handicraft-based economy to one based on large-scale manufacturing, industry, and technology. This process usually involves the adoption of new manufacturing technologies, such as the use of machines and automation, and the development of new systems of production, transportation, and communication.

The Industrial Revolution of the late 18th and early 19th centuries in Europe and North America was a key period of industrialization that transformed these regions and had a profound impact on the rest of the world. Industrialization has continued to be a major force shaping economies and societies around the world, with many countries undergoing their own processes of industrialization in the 20th and 21st centuries.

Now, the industrial world is going through another revolution. Manufacturers, supply chain managers and engineers need to keep up with the growing demands of a globally connected world.

How will industry leaders keep up with these every-increasing changes? They read about what’s working in their industry. Discover the latest industrialization trends now!
