Robots will take over millions of jobs, but also create millions of jobs

An unstoppable trend is the use of robots for work that is now being done by humans. According to research, such as by Forrester, this will impact nearly 30 million jobs over the coming 10 years. The good news is that robotics will also create millions of jobs. Forrester predicts about 15 million jobs. These numbers concern the US. What the impact of robotics will be in Europe we don´t know. What we do know is that our industry does not have many jobs which can be done cheaper or better by robots. The automation of print and finishing processes has already taken jobs, a loss which unfortunately is not compensated by a bigger demand for print.
