I view it a little differently. It means in the near future, many things could potentially be built on demand to fit the exact specifications / needs of the customer. This paradigm could also extend to industries that typically carry a lot of inventory that ends up being discounted if it cannot be sold immediately, or sent off to landfill if there are no buyers (in this case it could be clothing, shoes, etc. using automated CAD-tailoring systems). Customization will be expected, not the exception.
