How will robotics and automation impact industries?

The reason is obvious: the automation of more and more areas of the economy is causing concern not only among people, but also among states that are worried about declining tax revenue. So far, however, this has been an imaginary concern. Throughout history, people have used machines to automate things that they used to do themselves. Just think of automatic production lines for cars or computers.

Why invest in robotics and automation?

There are a number of potential pros and cons with regards to the potential future direction of the robotics and automation industry.

  • Automation creates a new mass market that increases productivity
  • Companies with the right products help other companies to do more with less, thereby meeting the goals of their shareholders
  • The environmental aspect promotes using resources more sparingly, and automation helps to achieve environmental goals
  • Automation addresses the shortage of skilled workers, since qualified and complex work can be done by robots
  • Robots help automate repetitive and boring tasks, which can help people take on more important tasks
  • Job security can be improved through automation
  • Governments could slow down growth in the industry through regulation or taxes
  • Large job losses due to automation could cloud public perception and slow growth
  • Devices can only do what they are programmed to do, while humans are able to adapt
  • If the area of ??application for the machine ceases to exist, it is likely to become redundant
  • The electricity requirements and potential pollution
