ReWalk and Corindus were among the recipients of funding in February 2019. Robotics investments totaled at least $4.3 billion in February 2019 in a steep increase from January, which had about $1.4 billion . In addition, companies reported approximately $3.9 billion worth of acquisitions this past month. Any political or economic jitters have not yet harmed the mood for robot deals. The Robotic Industries Association noted yesterday that robot sales in the U.S. continue to grow, especially in areas outside of automotive manufacturing. It cited demand in food and consumer goods, plastics and rubber, life sciences, and electronics. Surgical robots, autonomous vehicles, wearable devices, and military robotics led investments for February 2019.
