Are robots the saviors of manufacturing?
Five current trends show how the use of robots can promote digitalization and prevent a shortage of skilled labor:
- Digitization of production;
- Automation against the lack of skilled labor;
- Increasing demand for so-called low-cost robots;
- Automation of older machinery;
- Used industrial robots.
The demand for industrial robots is higher than ever before. About 570,000 new industrial robots in 2022 – a new record. The industrial trend points in the direction of personalized products. This leads to an ever-decreasing volume of profit margins. Such production is only affordable if it is automated and digitized.
Eastern Europe is included in the trends, too; it tries to be at the forefront. The robot density of the Czech Republic is outstanding in international comparison, but Slovakia and Hungary are also catching up quickly.
