  IFR study: Robots are expected to double worldwide by 2020

30. May 2018 – Almost 70 percent of employees believe that robotics and automation offer the opportunity to qualify for higher skilled work. This is the result of a worldwide automated survey of 7,000 employees in seven countries. Technological change requires targeted training and further education of employees. According to the International Federation of Robotics, by 2020 more than 3 million industrial robots will be deployed in factories around the world. This means that the operating stock will more than double within seven years (2014-2020).

"IT-like automation of robotics processes is by far the largest contributor to workplace transformation," comments Junji Tsuda, president of the International Federation of Robotics. "Businesses and governments need to work together to ensure that the workforce has the skills required by technological change."

As far as education is concerned, Singapore is one of the advanced countries with its SkillsFuture initiative. Employers in the city-state are asked to name the changes expected by industry over the next three to five years in each industry and to identify the qualifications required. Their answers are used to create "industrial transformation maps" designed to show people the way.

Since January 2016, all Singaporeans over 25 years receive a $ 345 loan, which can be used for free for the courses offered by 500 approved providers, including universities and MOOCs
