UiPath: RPA Sector Will Create 200,000 Jobs in India by 2021

Robotic process automation (RPA) provider UiPath estimates that the sector will create 200,000 jobs in India alone by 2021.

“We see a great pool of RPA talent emerging from the country,” said Daniel Dines, CEO and co-founder of the New York-based company, at a company event last week in Bengaluru.

The UiPath event included more than 650 participants, according to the firm, and featured discussions from UiPath customers and partners including HCL, KPMG, IBM, and Robert Bosch Engineering.

“India is reaping the benefits of a new genre of jobs created from RPA,” said Dines. “The Indian mind is apt for this technology. Indians have the right ability for workarounds and out-of-the-box thinking that works well for RPA.”

The jobs needed to support the growing industry will include traditional process engineers and managerial roles in addition to more niche positions such as robot managers and infrastructure staff.

Dines added that such growth offers great potential for the economy. “RPA will help build India’s middle class,” he said. “Currently only 1% of the Indian population earns above $20,000 a year. RPA is right now creating jobs that will push a higher percentage of the population into this segment.”
