The Robot Revolution - How Wage Growth in China is Fuelling Greater Use of Robotic Automation

Meet the next generation of industrial robots - including robots that are making robots!

This fascinating video from the Wall Street Journal explores the rising demand for industrial robotics, particularly in China.

Yaskawa is one of the world’s main manufacturers of industrial robots. Most of the demand for Yaskawa’s industrial robots is from China which is leading investment in and use of robotics in manufacturing.  A key reason for increased demand for robotics is the rapid growth in wages in China, which has encouraged producers there to swap people for machines.
