As is known to all, profound changes are happening to the development trend and pattern of global manufacturing industry at present, with technological upgrading speeding up continuously, and industry development and market demand changing with each passing day. In order to reflect the new trend, new situation, and new problem of the development of manufacturing industry in a timely manner, and provide reference and guidance keeping pace with the times, the National Manufacturing Strategy Advisory Committee began the revision of technological roadmap at the beginning of 2017. On the basis of conducting in-depth investigation and research on the development status of the technical fields of China’s key industries, closely following the latest development global industrial technology, and carefully organizing the weakness and bottleneck existing in each field, the over 400 academicians and experts participating in this revision carefully revised the technical requirements for enterprise and the development goal, key link, key material, and key equipment for technological development in each field, which ultimately led to the 2017 edition of technological roadmap.
