Abstract: The adoption of Industry 4.0 (I4.0) being a global technology advancement have challenged the adoption decision of stakeholders due to inadequate management strategies provided in the current literature. As a result, there exists a disparity of perception among organisations of whether or not the adoption of I4.0 should be pursued. As a part of this management strategy, this paper attempts to review drivers and barriers and characterise each as being intrinsic or extrinsic. Furthermore, these drivers and barriers are categorised according to technological, economic and regulatory, and social factors. As such, the nature of management strategy can be well-established to aid stakeholders in developing appropriate I4.0 programs and initiatives.

Keywords: Industry 4.0; drivers; barriers; intrinsic; extrinsic; literature review.
