The report suggests that the projected popularity of automated equipment may grow due to the relative infallibility of these machines as well as global adoption of equipment beginning in industrialized nations such as China and Japan.

Increased production in robots and other related automated technology are reportedly being propagated by companies such as Toyota Industries Corporation, Daifuku Co., Ltd., and Jungheinrich AG, among other companies worldwide.
