Stocks crept higher in early trading to start the final day of the first week of Q2 earnings season. Though many of the institutions that have reported this week have exceeded analyst expectations, Wall Street seems unimpressed. The Dow has gained 0.3% so far this week. The S&P 500 has seen a loss 0.2% and the Nasdaq composite has suffered a weekly loss of 1%.
The robotics industry seems to be at the cusp of recovery in 2021 as the world adjusts to new trends post pandemic. Notably, as the COVID-19 pandemic led to the practicing of social distancing norms, the demand for robotics and automation increased. Moreover, even after the pandemic is over, such trends are expected to continue as the rapid shift to digitization maintains its upward trajectory. In fact, Elisabeth Reynold, the executive director of Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s task force on the work of the future, stated that some firms, which have learned to maintain productivity with fewer workers “will not be willing to unlearn it”.
Automation was already an area of focus before the pandemic. In areas such as manufacturing, robotics has been an integral part of the process. The demand for industrial robotics in automotive and electronics is set to make a comeback in 2021, following the slump last year due to the pandemic. Per a report by Robo Global, by the end of 2021, the installed base of factory robots is estimated to exceed 3.2 million units which will be double the level seen in 2015.
Our trade alert for today highlights a robotics firm which provides automation solutions to lead players in the semiconductor industry.
