Global industrial robot revenue growth has slowed in the past two years. Robotics is still a buzzword being discussed a lot in the manufacturing world, albeit the focus has gradually moved from how quickly the industrial robots market will grow to how robotics technology will really help to reshape the manufacturing world.
This presentation will review key trends relating to robotics, discussing how these drivers are likely to impact the market as well as the manufacturing world. Topics include: evolving industrial robot technology (key components, computer vision, navigation, etc.); convergence of artificial intelligence/machine learning with robots and the impact on manufacturing; industries/applications leading the exploration of robotics technology to automate operations; the competitive landscape of supply and how this is changing; drivers of industrial robot sales growth (including a focus on China).
The connectivity of sensors is a critical factor enabling the transition to Industry 4.0.
With more data processed and captured than ever before, IoT vendors are looking to the cloud as the platform for providing analytics and ultimately driving value and new business models to their customer. But how ready are end-users for these changes, and what technologies are needed to support this? This presentation will investigate these influences and also discuss what these changes mean for automation vendors.
The manufacturing sector is going through significant change as companies from all parts of the supply chain look to improve what they do and how they do it. There is huge potential, but a lot of challenges.
This session looks at 2017 (and the short-term future) to assess the biggest changes, as companies start to implement IoT strategies for themselves and customers. Included will be a review of the automation component market and leading drivers such as machinery production and capital expenditure. Understanding this changing landscape and where the IHS Markit Manufacturing Technology team see things changing most should make for an interesting discussion!
