Globally, the deployment of Precision Specialist Robots is being driven across various industries by increasing blue collar wages, ageing working populations, and the falling costs of robots. Additionally, the availability of 5G and private networks is encouraging the use of robots to perform complex and time-critical tasks such as remote surgery; it is being used in the healthcare industry to support healthcare professionals in multiple use cases including minimally invasive surgery.
The Additive Manufacturing market is also growing, due to the ability to enable rapid prototyping, faster time to market, reduced material wastage, and on-demand production of customisable offerings. Some countries are promoting the use of additive manufacturing to decrease the dependency on imported parts and components, bringing greater efficiency to the supply chain.
