North America extended its dominance for bot hiring among private banking firms in the three months to May.
The number of positions in North America accounted for 35.2% of total robotics employment, compared to 30.3% in the same quarter last year.
This was followed by Asia-Pacific, which saw a 2.7 percentage point change year over year in robotics roles.
The figures are compiled by GlobalData, which tracks the number of new job postings from key companies in various sectors over time. Using textual analysis, these job postings are then categorized by topic.
GlobalData’s thematic approach to industry activity seeks to group key company information by topic to see which companies are best positioned to weather the coming disruptions in their industries.
These key topics, which include robotics, are chosen to cover “any issue that keeps a CEO up at night.”
Tracking them through job postings allows us to see which companies are leading the way on specific issues and which are dragging their feet – and more importantly where the market is growing and contracting.
