Europe was the fastest growing region for robotics hiring among healthcare industry companies in the three months ending September.
The number of roles in Europe made up 9.6 per cent of total robotics jobs – up from 4.8 per cent in the same quarter last year.
That was followed by Asia-Pacific, which saw a 1.8 year-on-year percentage point change in robotics roles.
The figures are compiled by GlobalData, who track the number of new job postings from key companies in various sectors over time. Using textual analysis, these job advertisements are then classified thematically.
GlobalData's thematic approach to sector activity seeks to group key company information by topic to see which companies are best placed to weather the disruptions coming to their industries.
These key themes, which include robotics, are chosen to cover "any issue that keeps a CEO awake at night".
By tracking them across job advertisements it allows us to see which companies are leading the way on specific issues and which are dragging their heels - and importantly where the market is expanding and contracting.
