Global Robot Investments Reach 16.5 billion USD - IFR presents New World Robotics Report

(PresseBox) (Frankfurt / Shanghai, )

Press conference - September 18th (Wednesday) at 10:20 hrs in Shanghai, China
Outlook 2019-2022 for Asia, Americas and Europe


Global robot investments reached a new record of 16.5 billion USD in 2018. A total of 2.4 million industrial robots now operate in factories around the world – an increase of 15 percent. These results come as a surprise because the main customer industries, automotive and electrical/electronics, had a difficult year. Two of the main destinations, China and North America, are in a trade conflict.

Where do Asia, America and Europe invest in the global automation race, how does the service robots sector evolve and what is the outlook for 2019-2022?

The International Federation of Robotics invites journalists to a press conference for the publication of the new World Robotics Report 2019:

When: Wednesday, September 18th, 2019, 10:20-12:00 hrs Shanghai local time

The IFR Statistical Department provides data for two annual robotics studies:

World Robotics - Industrial Robots: This unique report provides global statistics on industrial robots in standardized tables and enables national comparisons to be made. It presents statistical data for around 40 countries broken down into areas of application, customer industries, types of robots and other technical and economic aspects. Production, export and import data is listed for selected countries. It also offers robot density, i.e. the number of robots per 10,000 employees, as a measure for the degree of automation.

World Robotics - Service Robots: This unique report provides global statistics on service robots, market analyses, case studies and international research strategies in service robotics. The study is jointly prepared with our partner organization Fraunhofer IPA, Stuttgart.
