Global study reveals critical workforce issues, rising technology budgets, and evolving strategic priorities for CPG manufacturers

SINGAPORE, July 11, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Rockwell Automation, Inc. (NYSE: ROK), the world's largest company dedicated to industrial automation and digital transformation, today announced the results of the 9th annual "State of Smart Manufacturing Report: CPG Edition." The global study encompasses the responses of 158 leaders from CPG manufacturers, inclusive of home and personal care, as well as food and beverage manufacturers, across 17 of the leading manufacturing countries.

This year's report highlights the evolution of the CPG industry, specifically about utilizing emerging technologies to maximize workforce potential, improve forward planning and minimize risk. CPG leaders acknowledge that neglecting to adapt to the industry's transformation can stifle growth and competitiveness, especially considering that the manufacturing sector could see up to 2.1 million unfilled jobs by 2030 if current workforce challenges are not addressed.

Key global findings include:

"As CPG manufacturing leaders navigate a complex and evolving landscape, they are realizing that the ability to support their workforce will be a critical factor for success," said Steve Deitzer, vice president, Global Industry – CPG, at Rockwell Automation. "This year's report underscores the need for CPG manufacturers to prioritize workforce development, as ensuring employees are well-trained and equipped to leverage emerging technologies will be essential in overcoming industry challenges and achieving sustainable growth."

CPG manufacturers are prioritizing technologies, including smart manufacturing and automation, that enhance and augment the value of their employees to attract, engage and retain their workforce.

"With our extensive industry knowledge and a broad range of industry solutions, Rockwell is uniquely positioned to be a trusted advisor for CPG companies globally," said Deitzer. "No matter where companies stand in their digital transformation and smart manufacturing efforts, we meet them where they are so they can achieve sustainable growth."
