Apparel industry robotics hiring levels rose in January 2022

The proportion of apparel supply chain companies hiring for robotics positions rose significantly in January 2022 compared with the equivalent month last year.

By Patrick Scott

The analysis, which was conducted by GlobalData found that 18.8% of apparel companies recruited for at least one robotics-related position in January 2022, which was higher than the 6.2% of companies who were hiring for robotics related jobs a year ago and it was also an increase compared to the figure of 12.5% in December 2021.

When it came to the rate of all job openings that were linked to robotics, related job postings kept steady in January 2022, with 0.1% of newly posted job advertisements being linked to the topic.

This latest figure was the highest monthly figure recorded in the past year and is the same as the 0.1% of newly advertised jobs that were linked to robotics in the equivalent month a year ago.

Robotics is one of the topics that GlobalData has 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.

The analysis of the data shows that apparel supply chain 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 January 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.
