Robotics hiring levels in the packaging industry dropped in June 2022

We've analysed hiring patterns using data from GlobalData

By Data Journalism Team

The proportion of packaging companies hiring for robotics related positions dropped in June 2022 compared with the equivalent month last year, with 26.7% of the companies included in our analysis recruiting for at least one such position.

This latest figure was lower than the 34.5% of companies who were hiring for robotics related jobs a year ago and a decrease compared to the figure of 33.3% in May 2022.

When it came to the rate of all job openings that were linked to robotics, related job postings dropped in June 2022 from May 2022, with 0.4% of newly posted job advertisements being linked to the topic.

This latest figure was the lowest monthly figure recorded in the past year and is a decrease compared to the 0.6% of newly advertised jobs that were linked to robotics in the equivalent month a year ago.

Robotics is one of the topics that GlobalData, from whom our data for this article is taken, have identified as being a key disruptive force facing companies in the coming years. Companies that excel and invest in these areas now are thought to be better prepared for the future business landscape and better equipped to survive unforeseen challenges.

Our analysis of the data shows that packaging companies are currently hiring for robotics jobs at a rate lower than the average for all companies within GlobalData's job analytics database. The average among all companies stood at 0.6% in June 2022.

GlobalData's job analytics database tracks the daily hiring patterns of thousands of companies across the world, drawing in jobs as they're posted and tagging them with additional layers of data on everything from the seniority of each position to whether a job is linked to wider industry trends.
