The new World Robotics report recorded 553,052 industrial robotic installations in factories world wide – a progress price of 5% in 2022, year-on-year. By area, 73% of all newly deployed robots had been put in in Asia, 15% in Europe and 10% within the Americas.

“The world record of 500,000 units was exceeded for the second year in succession,” says Marina Bill, President of the International Federation of Robotics. “In 2023 the industrial robot market is expected to grow by 7% to more than 590,000 units worldwide.”

Asia, Europe and the Americas – overview

China is by far the world´s largest market. In 2022, annual installations of 290,258 items changed the earlier document of 2021 by progress of 5%. This newest acquire is exceptional because it even tops the 2021 outcome that was a 57% soar in comparison with 2020. To serve this dynamic market, home and worldwide robotic suppliers have established manufacturing crops in China and repeatedly elevated capability. On common, annual robotic installations have grown by 13% every year (2017-2022).

Robot installations in Japan had been up by 9% to 50,413 items, exceeding the pre-pandemic degree of 49,908 items in 2019. The peak degree stays at 55,240 items in 2018. The nation ranks second to China in measurement of marketplace for industrial robots. Annual installations gained 2% on common per 12 months (2017-2022). Japan is the world´s predominant robotic manufacturing nation with a market share of 46% of the worldwide robotic manufacturing.

The market within the Republic of Korea rose by 1% – installations reached 31,716 items in 2022. This was the second 12 months of marginal progress, following 4 years of declining set up figures. The Republic of Korea stays the fourth largest robotic market on this planet, following the United States, Japan, and China.

Europe

The European Union stays the world´s second largest market (70,781 items; +5%) in 2022. Germany is without doubt one of the prime 5 adopters worldwide with a market share of 36% throughout the EU. Germany´s installations went down by 1% to 25,636 items. Italy follows with a market share of 16% throughout the EU – installations grew by 8% to 11,475 items. The third largest EU market, France, recorded a regional market share of 10% and gained 13%, putting in 7,380 items in 2022.

In the post-Brexit United Kingdom, industrial robotic installations had been up by 3% to 2,534 items in 2022. This is lower than a tenth of Germany´s gross sales.

The Americas

In the Americas, installations had been up 8% to 56,053 items in 2022, surpassing the 2018 peak degree (55,212 items). The United States, the most important regional market, accounted for 71% of the installations within the Americas in 2022. Robot installations had been up by 10% to 39,576 items. This was simply shy of the height degree of 40,373 items achieved in 2018. The fundamental progress driver was the automotive business that displayed surging installations by +47% (14,472 items). The share of the automotive business has now grown again to 37%, adopted by the steel and equipment business (3,900 items) and the electrical/electronics business (3,732 items).

The two different main markets are Mexico – right here installations grew by 13% (6,000 items) – and Canada, the place demand dropped by 24% (3,223 items). This was the results of decrease demand from the automotive business – the strongest adopter.

Brazil is a crucial manufacturing website for motor automobiles and automotive elements: The International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (OICA) studies an output of two.4 million automobiles in 2022. This reveals the massive potential for automation within the nation. Annual set up counts grew fairly slowly with cyclical ups and downs. In 2022, 1,858 robots had been put in. This was 4% greater than within the earlier 12 months.

Outlook

The 12 months 2023 might be characterised by a slowdown of the worldwide financial progress. Robot installations in 2023 will not be anticipated to observe this sample. There is not any indication that the general long-term progress pattern will come to an finish quickly: fairly the opposite would be the case. The mark of 600,000 items put in per 12 months worldwide is anticipated to be reached in 2024.
