Industry 4.0 has long been on everyone's lips and promises attractive opportunities. One of its greatest challenges is to recognize relevant technological trends and their economic impact. The new study "Technological Trends in the Industry 4.0" with evaluations of 106 decision-makers from industrial companies can help to give answers for these challenges. In the study the maturity level of the participating companies was examined with regard to 39 selected technologies in the areas of "smart factory", "smart operations", "smart products" and "data-driven services". Also their current and future impact for the companies was assessed. The study thus provides a picture of the current situation in the I4.0 and shows which technological trends have the greatest potential for companies. Based on the results a deduction of the direction the industry 4.0 will develop in the nearer future can be made.
