Robotic gross sales surge in Europe, Asia and the Americas

Written by admin


Gross sales of commercial robots have reached a powerful restoration: A brand new report of 486,800 models had been shipped globally – a rise of 27% in comparison with the earlier yr. Asia/Australia noticed the most important development in demand: installations had been up 33% reaching 354,500 models. The Americas elevated by 27% with 49,400 models bought. Europe noticed double digit development of 15% with 78,000 models put in. These preliminary outcomes for 2021 have been printed by the Worldwide Federation of Robotics.

“Robotic installations all over the world recovered strongly and make 2021 essentially the most profitable yr ever for the robotics business,” says Milton Guerry, President of the Worldwide Federation of Robotics (IFR). “Because of the ongoing development in direction of automation and continued technological innovation, demand reached excessive ranges throughout industries. In 2021, even the pre-pandemic report of 422,000 installations per yr in 2018 was exceeded.”

Robust demand throughout industries

In 2021, the primary development driver was the electronics business (132,000 installations, +21%), which surpassed the automotive business (109,000 installations, +37%) as the most important buyer of commercial robots already in 2020. Metallic and equipment (57,000 installations, +38%) adopted, forward of plastics and chemical merchandise (22,500 installations, +21%) and meals and drinks (15,300 installations, +24%).

Europe recovered

In 2021, industrial robotic installations in Europe recovered after two years of decline – exceeding the height of 75,600 models in 2018. Demand from an important adopter, the automotive business, moved at a excessive stage sideways (19,300 installations, +/-0%). Demand from metallic and equipment rose strongly (15,500 installations, +50%), adopted by plastics and chemical merchandise (7,700 installations, +30%).

The Americas recovered

Within the Americas, the variety of industrial robotic installations reached the second-best end result ever, solely surpassed by the report yr 2018 (55,200 installations). The most important American market, the USA, shipped 33,800 models – this represents a market share of 68%.

Asia stays world’s largest market

Asia stays the world’s largest industrial robotic market: 73% of all newly deployed robots in 2021 had been put in in Asia. A complete of 354,500 models had been shipped in 2021, up 33% in comparison with 2020. The electronics business adopted by far essentially the most models (123,800 installations, +22%), adopted by a powerful demand from the automotive business (72,600 installations, +57%) and the metallic and equipment business (36,400 installations, +29%).

Video: “Sustainable! How robots allow a inexperienced future”

At automatica 2022 commerce honest in Munich, robotics business leaders mentioned, how robotics and automation allow to develop sustainable methods and a inexperienced future. A videocast by IFR will characteristic the occasion with key statements of executives from ABB, MERCEDES BENZ, STÄUBLI, VDMA and the EUROPEAN COMMISSION.
