I know both are different career paths but at this point in my career (8 years), fortunately I have got an opportunity to switch to either Mulesoft or UIpath based on company restructuring. Also, it would be helpful if I get to know the demand/compensation/future for these technologies in India as I am based out of India currently and willing to relocate to India in couple of years.
I had to Google UIPath. It's a RPA (Robotic process automation) tool. So you are deciding between ESB and RPA. Both require different interests and skills. So you should pick the one that suits you best.
RPA is a newer "field" so there is more risk. Either way, remember to learn the concepts. A specific product isn't what gives you career growth. It's understanding what is behind it so you can apply that skill to other things.
Their is Huge scope in RPA.
The major considered community of RPA careers are developers with this RPA skill set. Developers with RPA knowledge are getting hired in top multinational companies with 120% hike from their current package. Professionals from another relevant technical background, who are mostly considered are Testers, Process Associates and anybody with domain process knowledge
If you go chance to chance your field,Then I will Suggest you to go with RPA..
All the Best!!

+1 on what Jeanne said. Both are just products or technologies - neither of which provides anything remotely resembling a career by itself. In the course of a career you will need to learn many different products, tools and technologies - constant learning is a cornerstone of a career in software development.

In my perspective all the discussion's core end up in that sentence "the concepts" are the important thing to focus firstmost
