Indian manufacturers are embracing machines due to workers shortage
Indian manufacturers are embracing machines due to workers shortage for unwanted factory jobs. Today’s youth are not willing to do the shopfloor jobs like in Textile and yarn industries or metal moulding industries.
According to the bloomberg reports, Indian factories are facing shortage of manpower and can’t find enough workers for the shopfloor works. Report says that the fast pace of automation in the country. According to a survey by Willis Towers Watson that expected adoption of automation in the workplace of Indian companies over the next three years will increase from current 14% to 27% which is higher than the Asia Pacific average as well as global average – is attributable to unwilling workers who’d rather deliver food or work in hotels than sweat it out on the shop floor. Besides, the government’s job guarantee programme keeps workers away from manufacturing units that traditionally pay less than the minimum wage. Earlier, data from the International Federation of Robotics showed robots accounted for just 0.1% of India’s industrial workforce.
According to the International Federation of Robotics (IFR) and the Annual Survey of Industries (ASI), in year 2000, 1 robot per 10000 workers to 16 robots per 10000 manufacturing workers in year 2016.
