The UAE as an Industrial Hub

Countries are increasingly seeing the benefit of diversifying their energy mix in tandem with expanding – or even launching – local manufacturing. The UAE has invested heavily in both its manufacturing capabilities and energy mix to strengthen supply chains and help enhance economic diversity and energy security. By growing its manufacturing capacity sustainably, the UAE is localising and reinforcing supply chains while creating job opportunities associated with the energy transition.

Supported By

The UAE’s sustainable industrial development is underpinned by the Ministry of Industry and Advanced Technology’s (MoIAT) national industrial strategy, Operation 300Bn. The strategy focuses on more than doubling the contribution of the industrial sector to national GDP from AED 133 billion ($36.2 billion), supporting economic diversification. The strategy contains several programs, including Industry 4.0, which aims to promote the adoption of advanced technology across the industrial sector to increase sustainability and productivity.

The UAE also recently launched the Technology Transformation Program, which aims to develop 1,000 technological projects over the next 10 years and boost exports of technological products by around AED 15 billion ($4.1bn) a year. The program will add AED 110 billion ($29.9 billion) to GDP annually and draw AED 11 billion ($2.9 billion) in investments. The programs that fall under Operation 300Bn are targeted at 11 priority sectors, which include hydrogen, advanced manufacturing, and agricultural technology, among others.

Ultimately, by implementing Operation 300Bn, the UAE aims to transform into an advanced global manufacturing hub, enabled by technology and powered sustainably. 

Such a competitive hub will attract international investors. The ‘Make it in the Emirates’ campaign is one of the programmes empowering local and international investors and innovators to expand their businesses and export their products to new markets. The campaign is an open invitation to local and international investors and innovators to engage with MoIAT and to benefit from the UAE’s exceptional value proposition, including energy security, availability of raw materials, National ICV pogramme, and advanced digital infrastructure.

The Smart Manufacturing Zone at ADIPEC 2022 will help bridge the gap between the energy and manufacturing sectors to advance economic and energy security, equity, and sustainability. The Zone provides a forum for leading local, regional and global manufacturers to convene and engage with energy decision-makers. It will enable attendees to focus on developing domestic manufacturing ecosystems to build resilience, drive profitability, leverage future growth opportunities and overcome net-zero carbon emission challenges.

The 'Make it in the Emirates' campaign is an open invitation to local and international inverstors and innovators to engage with MoIAT and to benefit from the UAE's exceptional value proposition of SMEs and entrepreneurship programmes to fulfil their ambitions of developing, manufacturing and exporting their products from the UAE.

Event Core Sectors

sector1

3d Printing

The materials sector is being rapidly digitised and interconnected through Industry 4.0. New materials are being adopted and 4IR technologies are being used in material management, handling, and processing.

sector2

Additive Manufacturing

The IIoT is revolutionising many aspects of manufacturing operations. By taking networked sensors and intelligent devices that utilise big data and artificial intelligence (AI), and putting those technologies to use directly on the manufacturing floor, IIoT is making factories more efficient, safer and more cost-efficient.

sector3

Advanced Composites

In an era of Supply Chain 4.0, data optimisation using big data, AI, machine learning and blockchain across supply chains drives better efficiencies, better value and cost savings, and offers faster and leaner global logistics.

sector4

Augmented Reality (AR) & Virtual Reality (VR)

Computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software is utilised to reduce the time required to design and prototype without reconfiguring or retooling the manufacturing line. CAM is now taking on a wider role in all operations of a manufacturing plant, including planning, management, transportation and storage.

sector5

Computer-Aided Manufacturing

Customisation of instrumentation and control systems, paired with evolving technologies, allows for turnkey, precise solutions that enhance efficiency, improve production or operations, and create long-term cost savings for owners and operators.

sector6

Industrial Automation, Robotics And Lasers

The rise of digital technologies means multiplying the potential vulnerabilities of the smart factory. Therefore, manufacturers should build an effective manufacturing cybersecurity programme to identify, protect, respond to, and recover from cyberattacks.

sector7

Instrumentation and Control

Cloud computing offers significant advantages in the computational power required for applying AI and other smart manufacturing technologies. In addition, cloud solutions for manufacturing operations promise scalability, flexibility, process optimisation, and increased transparency across different assets.

sector8

Material Informatics

With the Middle East robotics market forecast to grow by $166.18 million between 2020 and 2024, robotics in industrial automation bridges traditional manufacturing with the latest smart technology, offering increased reliability, precision, consistency, and durability.

sector9

Materials Management 4.0

The manufacturing sector is integrating sustainable materials and involving renewable energy sources into their processes to lessen the burden of waste on the planet and allow for the implementation of a circular economy.

sector10

Nanotechnology

By leveraging the power of nanotechnology, the manufacturing sector will benefit from an almost infinite source of value-addition, in the form of strengthened performance of industrial products, retained at an atomic level.

sector11

Responsive and Smart Materials

Additive manufacturing such as 3D printing and rapid prototyping brings digital flexibility and efficiency to manufacturing operations by creating lighter and stronger parts and system.

sector12
