What Investors Need to Know about Robotics ETFs

Robotics and artificial intelligence will transform our future.  They will change the way we work, the way we connect, the way we invest, our homes, our work places, factories, transport and healthcare among others.

In fact, there are growing concerns that robots will steal our jobs or even threaten the future of humanity. And it’s possible that intelligent machines could themselves design more intelligent machines, leading to ultra-intelligent machines that could outsmart human beings but I don’t think that’s going to happen anytime soon.

There is an exponential pace of improvement in these technologies and their contribution to economic growth will continue to rise.

According to IDC, a tech research firm, robotics market will grow at approximately 17% per year and will be worth $135 billion by 2019.

Robotics ETFs provide a convenient way to gain diversified exposure to robotics, artificial intelligence and automation companies.

In this short video, we take a look at Robo Global Robotics & Automation ETF (ROBO) and Global X Robotics & Artificial Intelligence Thematic ETF (BOTZ).
