Abstract: Industry 4.0 is an advanced, non-conventional phenomena that, if implemented with care and vigilance, has the potential to change the future of the Indian manufacturing industry. The present work is aimed at highlighting the obstacles of Industry 4.0 to help Indian manufacturing, as the available literature indicates that the manufacturing sector still has reservations about the implementation of Industry 4.0. A fuzzy TISM model is established to recognise the significant barriers affecting Industry 4.0. The results depict that 'top management support, employee resistance, insufficient maintenance support systems and need for specialised training and skills' are the key barriers because of high driving power.

Keywords: Industry 4.0 barriers; TISM; fuzzy TISM; MICMAC analysis; fuzzy MICMAC.
