The World Robotics Report states that during the year 2020, there were more robots produced in Asia but fewer in Europe and the US. The global pandemic was the main reason for the production decrease compared to 2019.
With the pandemic subsiding, we expect production to pick up in 2022. This creates pressure for workers to quickly learn and acquire the latest technology.
That’s why there’s a new trend towards simplicity in programming and user interface in robotics. Now workers require hardware and software solutions that lower the learning curve and time for implementation. This trend falls in alignment with the creation of low-cost robotics models.
