The use of artificial intelligence in industry - trends in 2024

The rapid development of artificial intelligence (AI) is reshaping all sectors of industry. From manufacturing to logistics to customer service, AI-based solutions revolutionize work processes, improve efficiency and increase productivity. The application of AI in industry has now become a key factor in competitiveness. Let's see what new trends and developments can be expected in the industrial application of AI in 2024!


Production and process optimization

AI-assisted process optimization and manufacturing systems continue to play a leading role in the industry. Using automation, digitalization, data analysis and machine learning, systems are emerging that can fine-tune production processes, improve productivity and reduce the number of errors. With the help of AI, manufacturers become more and more flexible in terms of production, because these systems enable the rapid and efficient transition of production lines, so they can more easily respond to changing market conditions and consumer needs.


Predictive maintenance

Further progress is expected in the field of predictive maintenance models in 2024. AI-based systems analyze machine and equipment data to predict potential failures. This enables proactive intervention before failures occur, minimizing downtime and repair costs.


Intelligent robots

Intelligent robots are becoming more and more sophisticated and are able to perform more and more complex tasks. AI-controlled robots are capable of operating automated production lines, but their application is increasingly widespread in the fields of logistics (warehousing and transport) and quality control (identification of product defects).


Sustainability and environmental protection

The application of AI in optimizing industrial processes and increasing the efficiency of production not only serves economic aspects, but also has a significant impact on sustainability and environmental protection. Artificial intelligence can be used to optimize the use of energy and resources, thus reducing the carbon footprint of industrial activities.


Personalized production and consumer experience

The application of artificial intelligence enables a more personalized production and consumer experience. Based on the analysis of the data, manufacturers are able to offer customized products and services, so they can better meet the unique needs and preferences of customers.


Based on the trends expected in 2024, AI will remain a key player in industrial innovation. Companies that successfully adopt the opportunities offered by artificial intelligence can gain a competitive advantage in the global market. thyssenkrupp Materials Services, which distributes steel, light and non-ferrous metal, and plastic products, is committed to development, and is therefore at the forefront of the use of artificial intelligence in order to provide the widest possible range of services to its partners, while also keeping sustainability aspects in mind.
