IFR: World Robotics 2013 Industrial Robots – gratis samenvatting rapport
Robot sales slightly decreased in 2012 by 4% to 159,346 units, the second highest level ever recorded for one year. The decline of robot sales to the electrical electronics industry was the main cause for the slight sales reduction.
Sales of industrial robots to the automotive industry continued to increase. The chemical, and the rubber and plastics industries, as well as the food industry, increased their robot orders while the metal and machinery industry slightly reduced them. About 70% of the total robot sales in 2012 went to Japan, China, the United States, Korea and Germany (IFR Persbericht, 18 september 2013).
