Efficiency: The Path to Success for the Danish Manufacturing Industry in 2023

Jun 6, 2023

In 2023, the Danish manufacturing industry finds itself in a challenging situation. Global macroeconomic events such as the COVID-19 crisis and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine have created instability in the world market and impacted the Danish economy. Inflation has been on the rise for a prolonged period, component shortages continue to affect delivery capacity, and consumer prices put pressure on real wages and investment willingness. In light of these challenges, many companies have been hesitant to invest in digital and green transformation, raising concerns about the economic future.

Digitalization and automation

Nevertheless, it is precisely now that the Danish manufacturing industry should look towards cost efficiency, resource consumption, and overall production as an opportunity to navigate through the crisis while building healthy consumption habits that reduce waste and overconsumption. Digitalization and automation are key elements in this process of efficiency, and it applies not only to large corporations but also to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Although SMEs may be reluctant to make investments, they should take a closer look at the many benefits that come with digitalization and automation.


A crucial factor is the use of data. By collecting and analyzing real-time data from production, companies can identify bottlenecks and inefficient processes, enabling them to make informed decisions about optimizing their manufacturing processes.

Data is an invaluable resource that can lead to increased productivity, reduced downtime, improved preventive maintenance, and minimized repair needs. By harnessing data to its full potential, companies can achieve a more efficient and reliable production that contributes to enhanced competitiveness.

However, data can also play a crucial role in green transformation. By analyzing and utilizing data from production, companies can identify and reduce waste, optimize resource consumption, and minimize energy usage. This not only results in environmental benefits but also brings economic gains in the form of less waste and lower electricity bills.
