LONDON, Jan. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com just published a new market research report:

Asia/Pacific Manufacturing 2014 Top 10 Predictions

"2014 will continue its pace as Asia/Pacific Manufacturers continue to seek new opportunities for either lower-cost manufacturing centers or new emerging markets. IDC Manufacturing Insights expect to see more manufacturing activities coming to Southeast Asia as manufacturers based in China increasingly seek to reduce cost by moving to lower-cost Asian countries," says Dr. William Lee, senior research manager, IDC Manufacturing Insights Asia/Pacific.

"From a technology perspective, innovation in emerging economies will be a hot topic for 2014 and beyond, driven by an ever more demanding customer and increased competition from Western companies. Focusing on innovation from both internal and external sources will require improved means of collaboration. With ever increasing vertical and subvertical specific applications being introduced, IDC Manufacturing Insights expects the continued transition to packaged applications and the increased involvement in the line of business (LOB) making technology decisions. The use of a social business approach will be seen within forward-thinking organizations to facilitate the instantaneous spread of information and the reformation of the organization. This will drive visibility into the supply chain and facilitate the ability to take decisions in real time, based on actual information within specified time limits," adds Dr. Lee.
