Financing opportunities increased by robotics
Increased robotics utilisation among manufacturers and end-users will generate greater financing opportunities for asset financiers as robotics continue to change how business is conducted in the future, according to a new study, “Robots, Cobots, and Finance” by the Equipment Leasing & Finance Foundation in the US.
The study reveals that the key elements affecting future financing for robots are their level and autonomy, with autonomous robots creating the largest financing opportunities.
The study features a wide-ranging examination of the challenges and growth potential of robots and collaborative robots (“cobots”) including the financing risks for credit, residuals, legal, regulations, and accounting.
It also provides in-depth analysis of the current and future state of robotics in key equipment finance industry segments.
