In a study from 2019 that tracked the density of automated workers per 10,000 manufacturing industries found that South Korea led the international community by a sizable margin with 855. South Korea tops the list because of Samsung Electronics, Hyundai Motor Company, and Kia Motors Corporation. Trailing South Korea is Japan with 364. What was especially interesting was to see the progression that these countries have made since 2017 where both China and South Korea have grown the most. It will be interesting to see the global landscape in five years and if the United States has moved up the list from their current spot at number five.
