How do I invest in robotics stocks?

Machines are already indispensable in many industries and economic sectors. In many companies, the manufacturing processes are largely automated, while human labour is hardly required. In other parts of the economy, human activities are supported or even improved by machines, too.

Better technologies and more powerful processors drive this development incessantly. The possible applications and efficiency of machines and robots are constantly increasing. As a result, even in areas where the use of machines was unthinkable or not profitable a few years ago, automated production chains are now emerging.

This trend will continue in the future and may even be intensified. Technically experienced companies will claim more and more branches of industry and larger parts of the economy for themselves.

In this investment guide, you will find all ETFs that allow you to invest in the megatrend robotics. Currently, there are 3 indices or 4 ETFs available for investment.
