Peter Marsh Bio

Peter Marsh is the Financial Times’ manufacturing editor, reporting on developments in industries relating to manufacturing. He is the author of The New Industrial Revolution: Consumers, Globalization and the End of Mass Production, which considers the relationships between old and new economies and the global future of manufacturing.The rapid emergence of China and India as prime locations for low-cost manufacturing has led some analysts to conclude that manufacturers in the “old economies”—the U.S., U.K., Germany, and Japan—are being edged out of a profitable future. But Peter argues that if these “old economies” can adapt adroitly, opportunities are by no means over.The New Industrial Revolution combines a historical overview of manufacturing with a close look at contemporary developments. These contemporary changes include advances in technology, a greater focus on tailor-made goods aimed at specific individuals and industry users, participation of many more countries in world manufacturing, and the growing importance of sustainable forms of production. Peter considers the implications of these changes both for consumers making purchase choices and for manufacturers assessing how to participate successfully in the new industrial era.Peter has written at the Financial Times for a range of subjects, including technology, economics, the chemicals industry, and manufacturing. In the Business Journalist of the Year Awards, Peter was named the winner in the manufacturing category. His previous books are The Silicon Chip Book, The Robot Age, and The Space Business.Contact a speaker booking agent to check availability on Peter Marsh and other top speakers and celebrities.
