By 2027,

the use of robots in nontraditional sectors, most notably remote inspection and maintenance, will increase by 35%, resulting in a 50% drop in inspection errors.

"Robotics is entering the 'non-manufacturing' space where it's traditionally been used for automation and efficiencies. We are starting to see investments in commerce transactions and food & beverage, for example, where tasks from credit card machine testing to tray removals leverage robotics capabilities.
Can we leverage robotic capabilities to create efficiencies across manual and human-intensive, repetitive tasks? The answer is absolutely."

Tania Salarvand, Senior EVP of Strategy & Growth at Globant
