How ExxonMobil Is Using Data-led Insights for Lubricant Innovation

The Indian manufacturing sector is witnessing a boost due to government initiatives like Production-Linked Incentive (PLI) schemes and a planned increase in public investment. Manufacturing has emerged as one of the high growth sectors in India, and the government's initiatives intend to make the country a global manufacturing hub.

With increase in vaccinations being rolled out across the country, India’s growth projection seems stable at 8.3% as per the World Bank’s June forecast while influencing its economic prospects for the current year and coming years. Further, by 2022, the Indian government aims to create 100 million new jobs for the manufacturing sector.

The recent Covid-19 pandemic has partly enabled the manufacturing industry to embrace the digital way. Manufacturing companies globally, including in India, are converting their processes into digital ones and are adopting the use of technology in manufacturing, as we see in industrial IoT (IIoT). The manufacturing industry is undergoing rapid digital transformation with the coming of Industry 4.0.

Today's manufacturing industry aims to leverage the power of advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and Big Data to achieve increased efficiency and productivity in supply chain and operations.
