Abstract

The robotics industry, as with many other business sectors, has been greatly affected by the current economic crisis. We examine the performance of the robotics industry by tracing its operation over the past decade, through the analysis of quarterly reports by trade groups, and incorporating the knowledge and experience of industry leaders. This project: 1) assesses the current health of the robotics industry, 2) predicts its outlook for the future, and 3) reports hiring trends for robotics-related companies.
