COVID-19 and Robotics: Anticipated Changes in Short- and Near-Term Spending — Wave 1

By: Remy Glaisner, Maggie SlowikResearch Manager


This IDC Survey Spotlight focuses on the anticipated regional changes in short- and near-term spending for robotics amid the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. While robotics was a generally accepted innovation accelerator during the post-COVID-19 era, its envisioned usage has been strikingly moving from a local and tactical tool deployed by operational leaders to a much more strategic element of broader digital transformation plans. Consequently, the decision-making process is including new stakeholders versed into business flexibility and integration at scale of robotics.

This IDC Survey Spotlight is based on IDC's March 2020 COVID-19 Impact on IT Spending Survey, which surveyed over 400 organizations worldwide across industries during March 19–26, 2020.
