Automation and Robotics as the New Growth Formula for India’s Manufacturing Sector

When it comes to markets with the biggest potential to benefit from automation and robotics solutions integrated into manufacturing, India will most likely be number one in such a list. 

According to a new report by McKinsey Global Institute, developing globally competitive manufacturing hubs represents one of the biggest opportunities for India to spur economic growth and job creation this decade. Analysts say that rising demand in India, together with the multinationals’ desire to diversify their production to include low-cost plants in countries other than China, could together help India’s manufacturing sector to grow sixfold by 2025, to $1 trillion.

India’s low-cost labour and natural resources attract international investors despite the well-known fact that Indian manufacturers tend to create limited value compared to modernised Chinese manufacturers, for example. 

And this is where automation and robotics solutions come on stage, as they could allow Indian manufacturers to achieve new levels of competitiveness and scale. In fact, they already do. Indian companies (and international investors) are increasingly investing in new technologies to transform and scale up their value chains. 

Of course, implementing automation solutions can be a complex task that requires a lot of research and planning, along with experience and knowledge about all the risks and potential mistakes. That ‘s why any company looking to transform its manufacturing with new technologies needs a professional and trusted automation partner
