Review Paper

Abstract

Sustainable manufacturing has become of great importance in various fields include manufacturing, mechanical engineering, materials science, environmental science, and energy science. In this paper, we analyzed and reviewed the research trends of sustainable manufacturing technologies and suggested future perspective. Specifically, the state-of-the-art and historical trajectory of sustainable manufacturing are analyzed using data obtained from the Web of Science library and the Journal Citation Reports (JCR). Selected journals and research categories are evaluated by the number of publications, the number of citations, impact factor (IF), and H-indices. To suggest future perspectives on sustainable manufacturing research, growth rate of each research objects are evaluated and historically followed. Sustainable manufacturing is likely to be change in its nature in the era of digital transformation. It is expected to provide the status and future of research trends of sustainable manufacturing to the both manufacturing researchers and journal publishers.
