Robot density in US auto industry 7th worldwide – International Federation of Robotics (PHOTO)



Frankfurt (ots) – The robot density in the US automotive industry has reached a new record with 1,287 units installed per 10,000 employees. This ranks the United States seventh in the world. This result is comparable to the robot density in Germany (1,311 units) and Japan (1,248 units). China ranks twelfth with 938 units. This is what the International Federation of Robotics (IFR) reports in the current World Robotics Statistics.

“Automation is key to both post-pandemic recovery and growth and progress in the post-coronavirus era,” said Milton Guerry, President of the International Federation of Robotics. “In the boom after the 2008 financial crisis, companies like General Motors, Ford, Fiat-Chrysler and Tesla invested heavily in robotics and automation. Thousands of new jobs have been created in the automotive industry. We now have the opportunity many years and technological advances later to learn from this success story and to emerge clearly stronger from the pandemic. ”

Interest in the use of robots is increasing

The robot density in general industry is currently still comparatively low at 139 units per 10,000 employees. However, the potential for installing robots in general sectors of the economy is enormous, as shown by the countries surveyed around the world. In the United States, for example, annual orders for robots from the non-automotive economy exceeded orders for industrial robots from the automotive industry for the first time. Sales in the United States rose 7 percent in 2020 compared to 2019. Year-on-year, orders in the life sciences increased 72 percent, in the food and consumer goods industries by 60 percent and in the plastics and rubber industries by 60 percent.

How robotics are used

“To help companies successfully use robotics, AI, machine vision and related automation technologies, we launched AUTOMATE FORWARD – a virtual exhibition and conference that will take place from March 22nd to 26th,” said Jeff Burnstein, President the Association for Advancing Automation (A3) from the USA. “Top-class industry experts and more than 250 automation providers report on current use cases for automation and what they recommend to companies that are just starting with automation or want to expand it.”
