Era of Robotics – the helpers of the future

Era of Robotics – the helpers of the future

16 April 2021Reading time: 2 minutes

Robotics and other forms of intelligent automation are steadily advancing. To stay ahead of the game, companies can hardly avoid investing in this area. The demand for service robots in private use is also flourishing. Is the Era of Robotics finally making its way into our everyday lives? The potential for the economy is vast - and the trend could also create interesting opportunities for investors.

The first robots were already in use in the 1960s. But a lot has happened since then and the development of intelligent automation is steadily progressing. This also goes hand in hand with the increasing number of possible applications for robots. Whether in medicine or in industrial production - the helpers of the future are extremely multifunctional. While "robotics" is understood as the interface between engineering and computer science and deals with the support of humans by machines, "automation" mostly refers to the automation of work processes on the software level.

The application of robotics in industry is here to stay

Ever since the appearance of the Corona crisis, at the latest, "robotics" have been at the forefront of virtually every company's mind when it comes to investing. Sectors such as the automotive and chemical industries have been using industrial robots for a long time. But they are also increasingly finding their way into other sectors. Because of increasing competition and the need to constantly increase efficiency, companies can almost no longer get around automation and robotics. Automation therefore seems to be the trump card - and the demand for robots is likely to continue to increase significantly in the coming years.

There is also an increasing demand in private use

In addition to industrial robots, personal service robots are also flourishing. These are household robots such as intelligent vacuum cleaners, lawn mowers or window cleaners. In the area of security and burglary protection, too, there are now devices that can recognize familiar faces and identify suspicious noises with the help of artificial intelligence. If major progress continues to be made, consumer robotics could also conquer households.

Great potential for the economy

Innovations that enable the increasing use of robots in a wide range of industries as well as by private individuals have the potential to drive the economy even further. After all, they enable higher productivity as well as improved quality in many products and services. According to statista, the global market for industrial automation alone will be worth around 180 billion US-dollars by 2020. And this figure is likely to rise even further. According to a study by PWC ("will robots really steal our jobs"), the potential of this promising technology could contribute up to 14% of global GDP by 2030. The era of robots has dawned - and could also open up interesting opportunities for investors.

"The Era of Robotics" provides access to exactly these trends

Those who want to invest in robots can, for example, use the tracker certificates on "The Era of Robotics Index". The index includes stocks with a focus on long-term, structural growth trends in the field of automation and robotics. The focus is on companies that offer these services, processes and components and ultimately profit from investments in this area. Dividends are reinvested net in the index ("Performance Index"). Investors bear the risk of loss in the event of insolvency of the issuer or the guarantor (issuer risk).
