One very good argument presented in this article for Manufacturing's return to the US is the trend towards 'Mass Customization'.  Off-shore suppliers are very good at making high-volume, low-mix products.  However, as this trends towards mass customization grows, customers will demand more and more products specifically tailored to their personal desires and uniques needs.  All of this will drive individual product mixes towards high-mix, lower volume, which in turn will favor domestic manufaturing.

When you think of the DARPA Robotics Challenge, you may imagine complex humanoid contraptions made of metal and wires that move like a Terminator Series T-90. But what actually happened at the much-vaunted event was something just a bit different.
The machine is claimed to be the largest and most powerful electric pipe-bender on the market, exerting nearly 500,000 lb-ft of torque.
Traditional dev kits are based on a manufacturer’s microcontroller, radio module, or sensor device. The idea is to aid the design engineer in developing his or her own IoT prototype as quickly as possible. A not-so-traditional IoT development kit released by Bosch aims to simplify IoT prototyping even further.
This consulting firm has put together a report detailing the growing biomimicry design field in the US and around the world, from naturally bacteria-repelling surfaces to keratin-inspired polymers.
Here's a list of engineering and tech jobs ranked by outlook, work environment, stress, and income.
