Robotics in the automotive industry sales value worldwide 2017-2021, by country

The automotive robotics market is the second largest industrial robotics market and is estimated to keep growing due to an increased complexity and degree of individualization in car production.
However, the stagnating or even decreasing trend in all markets but China and “other countries” is related to the market saturation of robots in the automotive sector.
In 2018, the sales value of the market in China amounted to 1.6 billion U.S. dollars and is estimated to surpass 2.2 billion U.S. dollars in 2021. The sales value in Germany, in contrast, is estimated at 380 million U.S. dollars in 2018 and 360 million U.S. dollars in 2021.

In industrial robotics, hardware and software are often sold separately, with an increasing tendency to be sold together in the future. The current market therefore does not include the cost of software, peripherals, and systems engineering.

The DossierPlus on robotics provides further information on the methodology and the global robotics market and application areas of industrial and service robotics.
