Trends for Life

The Siemens technology flow – the basis of some key-innovations and artistic contributions present at the Universal Exhibition – is shaping current and future trends across the main theme of Digitalization, which is further cascaded into fundamental topics such as Future of Manufacturing, Sustainable Energy and Intelligent Infrastructure.


Everything starts from data. It feeds industries and countries and has a strong impact on successful development, focusing on effective and efficient management. That’s where the Siemens competence comes in, drawing on unique know-how to combine effective and efficient management with engineering technology. This means pioneering hardware, software and data, giving customers the best information to make smart decisions. Proven outcomes of existing software solutions show how crucially they impact on the entire lifecycle of a product, increasing productivity in manufacturing and bringing up to a 50% reduction in time-to-market.


The Future of Manufacturing is among best examples of this increasing seamless connection between virtual and real words of product development and production, and it’s no surprise that Siemens is paving the way in this extraordinary evolution. Manufacturing is becoming more and more digitalized, reflecting the need for more customized requests against less resources, and Siemens’ software-based innovations are helping to lay the foundations for the next industrial revolution.



A similar scenario is emerging in the energy field, impacting around 40% of global GHG emissions. Global energy systems have to face growing energy demand, scarcer resources and climate change. In this case smart data systems paired with innovative products and solutions by Siemens can help customers provide stable, reliable and cost-efficient energy. This ranges from oil and gas to efficient and clean power generation, up to reliable and low-loss power distribution, including intelligent networks and storage as well as efficient energy consumption.


The need for efficient and resilient infrastructure is even more evident if we consider the relevance of these systems as real backbones of national economies, since they are moving people and goods, powering lives and fueling growth. Once again this increasing need doesn’t cope at all with the current frequent situation of ageing and increasingly under pressure infrastructures due to population growth and financial constraints. Through digitalization and automation, Siemens helps its customers to increase efficiency, reduce operation costs, improve safety and resilience, and lower environmental burdens.
