4 Prominent Trends Transforming European Robotics
The European robotics industry is on the rise, with new technologies merging and new enterprise users emerging.
FREMONT, CA: One of the leading regions in the world when it comes to robotics, Europe, is consistently delivering innovations in the field. Apart from technology leaders, several robotics startup companies have emerged in the region, driving the robotics development efforts forward. As the demands for robotics grow, the industry is now looking to cater to an ever-increasing user-base. In addition to manufacturing, design, and development, support and expertise services for robotics have also shot up. Some of the most defined trends within European robotics are summarized in this article.
• The Growth of Robotics Startups
Driven by growing demands, the robotics sector in Europe has seen a continuous emergence of startups. Most of these startups focus on robotics innovations that leverage the European approach of interdisciplinary research in science and technology. European robotics startups lead the way in ambient intelligence, speech and haptics, learning, locomotion, and in several other advanced areas.
• Increased Adoption by Manufacturers
According to a report, 25 percent of the large enterprises in Europe with more than 250 employees use robots. For medium and small enterprises, the figures reduce to 12 per cent and 5 per cent respectively. In the European manufacturing sector alone, robotics has become a key driver of automation and competitiveness. Both service and industrial robots have performed increasingly well in Europe.
• Growing Significance in Non-Service Sectors
Although the service sector accounts for most of the robotics applications, even the non-service sector in Europe is now adopting robots. New avenues in robotics are opening up with industries like transportation, agriculture industry, and utilities looking to deploy service robots. Robotics is also making inroads into the field of European healthcare.
• More Countries Adopting Robotics
Previously, the adoption of robotics was limited to a few advanced countries in the region. Today, according to reports, enterprise use of robotics is distributed across Europe, with countries like Spain, Denmark, and Finland, leading the way. Countries like Greece, Hungary, and Romania have recorded a smaller share in the usage of robots, which is expected to grow further in the near future.
Europe enjoys a strong position in robotics, and with the right strategies, it can maintain its reputation and revenues successfully.
