Industrial robot installations in leading regions worldwide 2017-2019

Worldwide industrial robot shipments dipped to around 373,000 in 2019. Asia/Australia was the region with the highest number of units installed; an estimated 245,000 units fitted in 2019 alone.

Digital transformation spurs increased use of industrial robots

The global market for industrial robots, which was at around 46 billion U.S. dollars in 2018, could reach up to almost 70 billion U.S. dollars by 2024, as more businesses undergo a digital transformation of incorporating technological equipment into the production process. A market for industrial automation software has since developed and is expected to grow to just under 40 billion U.S. dollars by 2024.

A new type of robot: collaborative robots

This process of digitalization can also be seen in the blending of industrial and service robots’ functions into a new type of robot: collaborative robots. These co-bots, intended to work in close proximity with humans, could become a large market by 2025. Collaborative robots are used for actions such as handling material as well as assembling.
