The use of robots in U.S. manufacturing has more than tripled in the past 20 years and has doubled in the rest of the world, displacing certain categories of workers. According to research by the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, as of 2017, the automation penetration rate in the United States has risen from just 0.5 robots per 1,000 employees 22 years ago to 1.8 robots.

The report found that the automotive industry had the highest penetration of robots, with France leading the way, followed by the US and Germany. Automation has reduced the number of “middle-skilled” occupations in the middle, but the share of high-skilled and low-skilled jobs has increased, the report said. According to the report, the study found that France leads the way in using robots to build cars, with 148 robots per 1,000 workers, compared with 136 in the United States and about 120 in Italy and Germany.

The study also found that in all manufacturing sectors, Germany and Italy lead the US in the use of robotics.
