Fortune is one of the most respected business magazines in the world. It is known for its unrivaled access to world’s most influential leaders and decision-makers. In a world of business long on information and short on time, Fortune stands out with trusted insight, deep reporting and provocative story telling. Few publications cover the world of business with as much depth, breadth, wisdom, and panache. That’s why Fortune is recognized as ‘the best magazine in the world that just happens to be about business’. Fortune 500 is perhaps the best-known brand in business journalism and the ultimate hallmark of corporate success. Launched in India in October 2010 in a licensed partnership between ABP Group of Publications & Time Inc., Fortune India retains the spirit of the global brand with respect to thought leadership and practice from across the world every month while adding an Indian dimension. It is the only truly global business magazine dedicated to the global success of Indian business leaders, offering actionable insights to propel their businesses.
SMART COMPANIES are always looking for ways in which to improve their processes, be it manufacturing or delivery, so that the end result is both cost competitive and provides a good customer experience. Whether it is the use of the latest technology, artificial intelligence, or machine learning, the biggest companies the world over—across sectors—are pushing the boundaries to become more nimble and efficient. As these changes become a part of manufacturing or services, they make life easier for the consumer. In this issue, which we at Fortune India refer to as The Future Issue, we take a close look at one such trend sweeping sectors from manufacturing to aviation and healthcare: 3D printing. Invented more than three decades ago, 3D printing was, for long, seen as an industrial process. But today, the technology has come into widespread use and is being seen as a game changer in several sectors. Constant innovation and developments have made 3D printing a game changer which is disrupting industry and affecting lives in waysnever thought of before.
