The construction industry, which includes residential construction, roadway and bridge construction, and industrial construction, accounts for approximately $10 trillion in annual revenue —about 6 percent of global GDP— yet the sector is one of the least automated. While construction productivity improved over the past few decades, it is vital that the construction industry become much more efficient. To illustrate, it has been estimated that roughly 13,000 new buildings alone must be constructed per day between 2020 and 2050 to accommodate the world’s growing population. Robotics and automation can help.
In this RoboBusiness Direct session, suitable for construction professionals, robotics entrepreneurs and engineers alike, attendees will learn about construction robotics solutions available today, what is on the horizon, and the critical need for new construction automation technologies. Challenges and functional gaps in the construction sector which are opportunities for robotics solutions providers, will also be discussed.
