Where are robots used?

When looking at the global market, about 384,000 units were sold in 2018. The global market for industrial robots is projected to grow through 2023 and is around 7.6 percent of the total robotics industry. The enormous growth in worldwide shipments is driven by the automotive sector, which accounted for the majority of installations of robots. Consequently, the robot density is particularly high in countries with a robust automotive industry, such as China and the United States. However, Singapore and South Korea are the countries with the largest robot density in the manufacturing sector, perhaps due to tech-savvy environment with many people having a favorable opinion on technological advances and artificial intelligence.
