PwC international study: Will robots really steal our jobs?

22 February 2018

PwC identifies three waves of automation between now and the mid-2030s and how it will impact jobs. Transport and manufacturing sectors have relatively high potential for job automation by the 2030s, health and education are less automatable.
Education is a key factor driving risk of automation, with less well educated men at highest risk in the long run. But women could be at the higher risk over the next 5-10 years, for example in clerical roles. There should be broadly offsetting job gains provided increased investment is made in retraining. The impacts of three overlapping waves of automation to the 2030s are examined in a new report published by PwC (News Release PwC, 6 February 2018).
