Industry 4.0, which started as a result of the information and technology age, includes systems that receive, transmit, evaluate and manage data. All kinds of movements of the devices in these systems are monitored in real time. These monitoring data are transmitted and stored through various channels, evaluated using information systems and necessary mechanisms are activated by cyber physical systems. For this reason, the concepts of these technologies are frequently included in the scientific articles about Industry 4.0. Based on this idea, the basic concepts and new trends in Industry 4.0 are investigated in this study. For this purpose, highly cited 75 Industry 4.0 articles are selected to reveal the basic concepts of Industry 4.0, bigrams and trigrams in these articles are found. Later, the bigrams, that are not included in the scientific articles belonging to the years until 2017, but are seen in the articles of at least two different years in 2017 and after, and are also among the top 100 most used bigrams are identified. In the last stage, in order to see which of these bigrams usage frequency have increased over the years, these bigrams were queried using the Google Books Ngram Viewer platform. By applying this method, new trends in Industry 4.0 were found as "additive manufacturing", “3d printing”, "cyber security", "circular economy", "sustanaible business" and "digital twin". Thus, it was aimed to raise awareness for these bigrams, which are expected to be studied more in the industry in the future.
