Robotics Is Growing Strong in Italy's manufacturing Sector
Considerable growth is taking place in Italy in terms of advancement in robotics. The nation is a great contributor to the robotics arena in the European region.
FREMONT, CA: It is predicted that within the imminent years, around 87 percent of production enterprises are likely to leverage robotics, through the use of second-generation robots in Italy. The nation is expected to play a significant role in spearheading second-gen robotics use, similar to other European nations like France and Germany. These are findings from a study conducted by BCG.
Further, the study also observes that despite the interest and ongoing integration of robotics technologies, many firms are devoid of an action plan concerning short to medium termed implementation of robotics. Only one in about five enterprises were confident of their strategy intended at digitally reconfiguring the production processes.
Although this could be a roadblock, the availability of specialized skills is a promising factor for the Italian manufacturing industry. The future will rely on this expertise, especially with respect to the initial integration of robotics in the solitary production context. Moreover, the focus would be on maintaining continuous efficiency in the long-term by leveraging the interest and expertise in robotics technology.
Another encouraging fact is that the Italian enterprises and business owners are aware of the potential of digitalisation and automation towards safeguarding the future of their enterprises and are willing to make huge investments towards achieving it.
Also, the country’s manufacturing sector is already being connected with high standards. The government is taking several initiatives towards developing a robotics-powered manufacturing sector. The Industria 4.0 deserves a special mention, and its impact is visible in the development of robotics here.
Industria 4.0 was launched by the Italian Ministry of Economic Development in 2017. The 14.0 puts in place the horizontal measures that are accessible for enterprises. The underlining motive behind this is to promote investment in innovative technologies, development, and research, and in turn, revitalise the competitive-edge of Italian firms.
