North America is seeing a hiring boom in clinical trial operations industry robotics roles

Some parts of the world are investing more heavily in robotics roles than others

By Data Journalism Team

North America extended its dominance for robotics hiring among clinical trial operations industry companies in the three months ending February.

The number of roles in North America made up 72% of total robotics jobs – up from 66.1% in the same quarter last year.

That was followed by Asia-Pacific, which saw a 1.5 year-on-year percentage point change in robotics roles.

The figures are compiled by GlobalData, who track the number of new job postings from key companies in various sectors over time. Using textual analysis, these job advertisements are then classified thematically.

GlobalData's thematic approach to sector activity seeks to group key company information by topic to see which companies are best placed to weather the disruptions coming to their industries.

These key themes, which include robotics, are chosen to cover "any issue that keeps a CEO awake at night".

By tracking them across job advertisements it allows us to see which companies are leading the way on specific issues and which are dragging their heels - and importantly where the market is expanding and contracting.

The fastest growing country was the United States, which saw 65.8% of all robotics job adverts in the three months ending February 2021, increasing to 70.9% in the three months ending February this year.

That was followed by India (up 1.5 percentage points), Poland (1.1), and Canada (0.8).
