Robotic Automation in manufacturing is driving US growth. According to a survey recently released by Boston Consulting Group, companies that sell goods in the US and plan to add production capacity, plan to add that capacity in the US more than in any other country. One driver of this shift, according to the survey, can be attributed to increases in automation technology.  This includes robotic automation in manufacturing. Increases in automation combined with other advantages such as skilled labor, supply chains, and customer proximity are driving companies to bring or return their production to the US.

Industrial robots have been around for over 40 years and have advanced robotic automation in manufacturing.  But, according to BCG, 90% of all tasks in manufacturing are still performed manually. 

“There’s no question industrial robots have had a large impact but we believe in the coming post pandemic times, there will be even larger opportunities and markets to develop which will extensively expand into digital robotics enhancing the maturing Internet and the Blockchain revolution. We are on a 4th generation of automation - what is known now as ‘Industry 4.0’,” commented Paul Rosenberg - BOTS, Inc. CEO.

About First Bitcoin Capital Corp
