Use of digital technologies rises in the brazilian industry, but industry 4.0 is still in its early stages
Among industrial companies, 69% already use at least one digital technology out of a list presenting 18 different applications. However, most companies use a small number of digital technologies, showing that they are still at an early stage along the digitalization process. Among industrial companies, 26% use between 1 and 3 digital technologies and only 7% use 10 or more. The main barriers to adoption considered by the companies are the high cost of implementation and the lack of qualified workers.
