The Seattle Times
Mexico is in a manufacturing boom. Exports from Mexican factories have increased 13 percent since 2012. The country already is the seventh-largest producer of cars in the world, and Chrysler, Honda and Volkswagen have major operations here.
During the next five years, another wave of big automakers, including Ford, Audi and Toyota, plan to open new plants. It's not just cars. Bombardier, Cessna and Hawker Beechcraft have opened aircraft-assembly lines in Querétaro and Chihuahua. Plastics and iron and steel exports have steadily risen.
The Washington Post
After three decades of dramatic growth, China’s manufacturing engine has largely stalled. With rising salaries, labor unrest, environmental devastation and intellectual property theft, China is no longer an attractive place for Western companies to move their manufacturing. Technology has also eliminated the labor cost advantage, so companies are looking for ways to bring their high-value manufacturing back to the United States and Europe.
With some of the most advanced manufacturing industries in the world, the U.S. and Germany in particular stand to gain much from the new "digital manufacturing era" or Industry 4.0 — that is, the integrated application of computer technology to all phases of the production process. Certainly, technological advancements are creating huge opportunities for individual manufacturers to improve the quality of production while streamlining internal efficiencies and reducing overheads.

Manufacturing continues to expand, but a lack of business spending may be a cause for concern going forward, some economists say. Manufacturing expanded for the fifth month in a row in July, while the economy as a whole grew for the 86th consecutive month. That's according to the Institute for Supply Management's July 2016 Manufacturing Report on Business. Most of the indicators in the report showed little month-over-month growth or decline.

Kato Manufacturing, based in the blue-collar enclave of Gifu Prefecture, in central Japan, is a microcosm of the country's industrial evolution.
The family-run metal shop, which was started 128 years ago, originally made simple farming tools for what was then a largely agrarian society. When Japan morphed into a manufacturing giant, churning out automobiles and electronics for the world, Kato supplied the metallic equivalent of skeletons: sculpted frames and housings that gave products their shape. Now, as Japan aggressively tries to regain some of its manufacturing might in the face of competition from lower-cost countries like China, Kato is producing parts for airplanes.
