Robots have become increasingly popular across all industries. While the manufacturing sector remains the most prominent, other areas are recognizing the benefits of these machines too. Robots in the pharmaceutical industry are playing an increasingly crucial role in the sector.  The pharmaceutical robot market was worth $64.37 million in 2016 and could surpass $119 million next year. Considering how these machines have supported the industry through the COVID-19 pandemic, that number could be higher.
