Expansion of the proportion of manpower of new industry from electric/autonomous vehicles to robots

https://korean-electronics.com//inquirySince new technology leading the 4th Industrial Revolution is changing quickly and highly unreliable, the demand for future R&D/designing manpower in the field of new industry is rapidly increasing. It is expected that 380,000 new jobs will be created in 12 new industrial fields by 2025.

The number of workers in 12 new industries from electric/autonomous vehicles to smart ships, IoT home appliances, robots, bio health, aviation/drone, premium customer goods, energy new industry, new material, AR/VR, new-generation display, and new-generation semiconductors is predicted to increase by over 11.2% annually from 203,000 in 2015 to 362,000 in 2020 and 585,000 in 2025.

In particular, it is expected that the proportion of work of ‘industrial technical manpower’ possessing professionalism such as R&D/product quality verification/producing technology, etc., among the entire workforce, will increase exponentially from 40% in 2015 to 50% in 2025.

This means that work will be reorganized focusing on high-quality technical manpower with professionalism rather than supporting manpower such as clerical work/service work, according to changes of industrial structures and development of new technology in the era of the 4th industrial revolution. Accordingly, the government will constantly expand business education and training industrial manpower of practical business in accordance with demand from the industrial field.

The Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy recently held an industry-university-institute expert meeting seeking ways to create jobs by promoting future promising new industry. The meeting was intended to mainly discuss job creation prospects and successful cases and difficulties regarding jobs in companies investing in new industry.

Representatives of companies investing in new industry such as big data, telemedicine, driverless vehicles, etc. who participated in the meeting emphasized the need for creating private sector jobs focusing on the industrial field, along with creating public sector jobs by the new government.

As it seems that most jobs (380,000 jobs) willl be created in 12 new industries which have a huge effect of job creation, it was requested that the government should try more, led by the ‘Job Committee,’’ to create an environment that companies can create more jobs. It was also requested that capable expert manpower, be trained to support the flexible transfer of manpower from other industries, expand infrastructure such as laws and systems and support new technology development (R&D) of the government and institutions.
