Anticipating Robotic Automation Growth in 2024

During global economic shifts, the manufacturing landscape is evolving, and at the forefront of this transformation is the accelerating growth of robotic automation. As we step into 2024, the trajectory for the robotics industry points skyward, with various factors converging to drive unprecedented advancements.

Meeting Demand Amid Global Restraints

Despite global investment limitations, leading robotics manufacturer FANUC, who has announced the delivery of its one-millionth robot, provides insights into the anticipated substantial increase in demand for factory automation over the medium-to-long term. Marco Ghirardello, President and CEO of FANUC Europe, emphasises, “Workers and companies alike can benefit by reassigning their employees to more challenging tasks where they can better use their cognitive skills” by embracing factory automation.

Through advancements in robotics, businesses can optimise energy consumption, seamlessly integrate digital technologies, and mitigate the impact of workforce shortages. Recognising the transformative potential of automation solutions, industries worldwide are embracing these technologies and addressing challenges unique to the contemporary manufacturing landscape of the 21st century.

Digitalization and Industry 4.0: Driving Forces of Change

Industry 4 0

The era of Industry 4.0 is well underway, and digitalisation remains a pivotal force in shaping the future of manufacturing. Robotics, as a cornerstone of this industrial revolution, is set to play a central role in enabling businesses to harness the power of data, connectivity, and smart technologies.

In their article, McKinsey & Company states, “This wave of change in the manufacturing sector began in the mid-2010s and holds significant potential for operations and the future of production.

From automated production lines to collaborative robots working alongside human counterparts, the possibilities are boundless.

This transformative era is characterised by advanced analytics, automation, and cutting-edge manufacturing technologies. The Fourth Industrial Revolution builds upon the innovations of its predecessor, the Third Industrial Revolution or digital revolution, bringing forth four foundational disruptive technologies:

  • Connectivity, data, and computational power
  • Analytics and Intelligence
  • Human–machine interaction
  • Advanced engineering.

This shift not only revolves around technology but emphasises the critical role of upskilling and reskilling the workforce. Companies must navigate the end-to-end skill transformation with a focus on scouting the skills required, shaping talent gaps, and implementing content and delivery mechanisms for large-scale worker training. As we delve into the opportunities and challenges of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, we must understand that sustainability is inherently intertwined with these advancements.

Outlook for 2024: A Growth Spurt

As we look ahead to 2024, the growth prospects for robotic automation are nothing short of promising. The demand for more sophisticated, adaptable, and user-friendly robotic solutions is rising. From small and medium enterprises to large-scale manufacturers, the accessibility and versatility of robotic automation are driving a shift in how industries operate and innovate.
