Not a matter of fiction since 1960s, Automation and Robotics is one of the prominent and important thematic investment opportunities. We can see how this multi-decade set of technological developments influences every aspect of industrial economy.
So far, the demand for robots was driven primarily by factories automating their processes. It is predicted that as industrial robots become cheaper and more capable, the global installed base could double between 2019 and 2025 to more than 5m units (Bank of America, 2019). Today we witness how demand for robots spills to other industrial sectors like warehousing, logistics, healthcare, recreation and more.
