The STOXX Global Smart Factory index is comprised of companies that stand to benefit from the ‘smart factory’ trend. The companies in this index combine physical production and operations with smart digital technology, machine learning and big data to create a more holistic and well-connected ecosystem for companies that focus on manufacturing and supply chain management. An increase in the adoption of industrial robots, the evolution of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and the growth in demand for smart automation solutions are expected to drive the shift towards smart factories, benefiting the companies included in this index.
Revere (RBICS) data allow a detailed breakdown of the revenue sources of the eligible companies, helping this index to select companies with substantial exposure to the smart factory trend.
Furthermore, the index excludes companies that Sustainalytics considers to be in breach of UN Global Compact principles or to be involved with controversial weapons.
