The Information and Decision Support Center in the Council of Ministers highlighted the latest reports of the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) for the year 2022 on “The Future of Manufacturing in the Post-Pandemic World”, as the report predicted three future trends for the industry as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, and one of the most important These trends are accelerating the digitization and automation of industrial production, allowing remote control of factories, and reducing dependence on the human element.
In this regard, the report pointed out that the use of industrial robots per 1,000 workers increased from only 1.7 industrial robots per 1,000 workers in 2000 to about 6 robots per 1,000 workers in 2020, as this trend became especially evident after 2010 when the robot density began to grow at a pace Much faster globally.
The second trend is the transformation of global economic power. The report indicates that Asia will become a dominant center of industrial production. The share of the Asia-Pacific region in global manufacturing value added increased from 15% in 2000 to 45% in 2020.
As for the third trend, it represented a shift towards a green industry to ensure efficiency and sustainability through a reduction in the amount of carbon dioxide emissions.
