Once the Euro-Franc exchange rate gets somewhat back to normal, the prospects for the Swiss machine tool industry will look rosier again. It is now time to make use of the opportunities that Industry 4.0 has to offer and to transform traditional Swiss strengths such as innovation capacity, precision and reliability into competitive advantages.
Swiss machine tool manufacturers appear to have overcome the difficult market situation that has predominated over the last few years. The weakening of the Swiss franc has made them more competitive again in the export markets, but for the majority of companies, the margins are still not satisfactory.
In order to increase revenues, Swiss companies need to quickly forge ahead with the implementation of Industry 4.0 on the one hand and adopt a pioneering role. On the other hand, they need to increase efficiency in the development and production of their products and reduce costs.
