Spanish companies have a long road ahead before they reach the Industry 4.0. According to a study conducted by consultancy firm Roland Berger  and sponsored by Siemens, Spanish companies acknowledge that they lack the investment and training they need to make advances in digitalisation. The Industrial, Energy, Pharmaceutical and Health sectors are lagging far behind more advanced industries such as Telecommunications, Tourism and Banking.

Exhibitors and visitors to MATELEC industry will be able to see the latest advances in this field and the main keys for the future for themselves.

The Roland Berger report shows that while the Spanish economy is ranked number 14 in the world by volume of GDP, it is in 45th place when it comes to the development of digitalisation. The report also reveals that companies are increasingly aware of the importance of encouraging digitalisation, but there is still a long way to go, especially in some sectors, to advance toward the so-called 'Spain 4.0'.

The companies surveyed agree that the digital transformation towards 'Spain 4.0' offers not only quantitative benefits in the economic results of the companies (thanks to improved of the turnover and  optimisation of costs, which can be cut by up to 20%), but also qualitative benefits, because of the positive impact on employee welfare.

The report also estimates that, at the macroeconomic level, digitalisation could mean an increase of €120,000 million in Gross Added Value (GAV) in 2025 in the sectors analysed.
