This revolution is characterized by the addition of disruptive technologies and methods. These aspects of Industry 4.0 have a significant impact on marketing and have led to an evolution to ensure that marketing activities align with technological advancements and address consumers' current needs. The purpose of this paper is to formulate and discuss future research avenues for marketing considering the changes brought by Industry 4.0. The approach taken in the paper is to review the relevant literature and focus on the key themes most important for future research on industry 4.0 and marketing.
