Metals & Electronics

Industrial production is undergoing a radical shift towards more connectivity and automation, while the rise in labor costs in emerging markets has triggered the demand for industrial robots. Challenges in the automotive manufacturing industry, including the global semiconductor shortage and increased climate awareness, are putting further pressure on the metals and electronics sector to innovate.

In light of growing environmental consciousness, alternative propulsion and powertrain technologies are gaining momentum, leading to investments and innovations in the battery market. However, this interest in sustainability and mitigation of carbon dioxide emissions is not limited to the transport sector. Metal manufacturing is also facing the same obstacles and opportunities, with the added strain of the Russia-Ukraine war impacting prices and demand.
