As the region with the most active economic development in the world in recent years, Asia also ranks the first in the growth rate of robot installation in the world. Between 2010 and 2016, robot density grew at an average annual rate of 9% in Asia, 7% in the americas and 5% in Europe.


China, the world's fastest growing industrial robot density. From 2013 to 2016, the number of robot installations increased significantly, from 25 robots per 10,000 people in 2013 to 68 robots per 10,000 people in 2016. In the latest statistics, China's industrial robot density ranked 23 in the world, the government has been through policy support, before 2020, making China into a global top ten countries, degree of automation in the industrial policy of the robot industry development planning (2016 ~ 2020) ", planning to achieve industrial robot density reached more than 150, 2020 and 2020 years ago in domestic industrial robot sales of 100000 units (2017, according to data in China, domestic robot sales of 2. 70,000 units, foreign brand robot sales of 60,000), of which the annual output of six-axis and upper industrial robots reached more than 50,000 units.

South Korea has the highest density of industrial robots in the world. This figure has been maintained since 2010, and its robot density (631 robots per 10,000 people) has significantly increased from 531 in 2015, which is more than eight times the global average. This high growth rate depends on the number of newly installed robots in the manufacturing sector in South Korea, especially in the 3C and automotive industries.

According to IFR, much of the growth in industrial robot use in South Korea has come from continued installations in the electrical/electronics and automotive industries. The trade ministry announced in 2016 that it would spend 500 billion won ($450 million) over five years to expand its robotics industry, and the country has invested heavily in corporate research and development centers.

South Korea has a developed electronics industry, such as samsung electronics, LG and other world-class electronics industry enterprises are South Korea; In the auto industry, there are well-known brands such as hyundai motor and kia motors, as well as giants in the equipment field such as modern heavy industries and doosan machinery. The frequency of robots used in these industries is quite high, which provides fertile soil for the development of industrial robot industry.

Singapore has the second highest density of industrial robots in the world. The robot density in 2016 was 488 robots per 10,000 people, 90 more than the 398 robots in 2015, of which about 90% were used in the 3C industry. Once known as the four Asian tigers, Singapore to international trade, industry, tourism industry as the three major economic pillar, the electronics industry has become an important source of economic growth to Singapore, 40% of the world's hard disk and one over ten of the chip is made in Singapore, Singapore last year electronic industry cluster of output 33 year-on-year expansion. 5%.

Singapore is applying robotics to more industries, including healthcare, construction and services. The government has played an important role in the development of robots. In 2016, the local government announced plans to invest an additional 4 percent in the local robot industry within three years. 500 million dollars.

Japan ranks fourth globally in the density of industrial robots. Robots originated in the United States, but were first developed in Japan. The robot density in 2016 was 303 units per 10,000 people, second only to Germany's 309 units per 10,000 people, a slight decrease from 305 units per 10,000 people in 2015. The decline was mainly due to the shrinking Japanese auto market, which did not require manufacturers to expand further. In addition, Japanese auto companies are increasingly expanding production facilities overseas, especially in China and other Asian countries, as well as the United States and Mexico. In addition, auto parts suppliers are increasingly moving to customers' locations.

However, Japanese robot makers have greatly increased their robot production capacity, mainly in response to growing demand in the global market. Japan is currently the world's leading producer of industrial robots, and two of the four international families are Japanese companies (fanuc, yaskawa electric). In 2016, Japan's robot production capacity reached 15. 30,000 units, a record high, and a 52% market share in the global supply of robots. For Japan, the domestic robot market is more or less saturated, just from the perspective of the auto industry. However, increased production capacity in Japan's new materials, manufacturing processes and electronics industries will also lead to greater sales of industrial robots.

North American

The United States ranks seventh globally in the density of industrial robots. The current robot density is 189 robots per 10,000 people. In 2016, the automobile industry was still the main application field of industrial robots, accounting for about 52% of the total market sales, and it is expected to continue to develop at a growth rate of more than 15% in the next few years. The main reason for the growth of the industrial robot market is the reindustrialization strategy. The United States, which lacks the cheap labor resources, hopes to achieve the transformation of production through the high degree of automation.

The United States, with its strong scientific and technological research capabilities, has been studying robots for a long time. However, Adept Technology, the global leader and provider of intelligent vision Robot systems, has been formed in the United States, and the automotive industry is home to industrial Robot companies such as america-israel and Baxter international, American Robot, and ST Robotics.

Canada, 13th in the world. The current density of industrial robots is 145 per 10,000 people, and the country's robot sales are largely dependent on the continued development of the automotive industry.

Mexico, a hub for carmakers and car-parts suppliers, exports most of its products to the United States and is expanding into South America. Therefore, the automobile industry is still the most important application market for robots, accounting for 81%. The density of industrial robots in Mexico is 31 units per 10,000 people, far below the world average of 74 units per 10,000 people and ranking 31st.

Germany, the most automated country in Europe, ranks third globally. The density of industrial robots is 309 units per 10,000 people. In 2016, the annual supply and stock of industrial robots accounted for 36% and 41% of the total robot sales in Europe, respectively. The annual supply of robots is expected to grow by more than 5% between 2018 and 2020, as demand for robots increases in the industrial and automotive sectors.

When many people think of Germany, they probably think of cars for the first time. German automobile industry in the world's leading position, such as BMW, Volkswagen, Mercedes, porsche, audi brand has become famous in the world, but also formed such as Bosch, zf, continental auto parts enterprises. In the past, the automobile industry was the main market and the largest market for robot applications, so this is very beneficial for the robot industry.

In addition, Germany has advanced industrial technology beyond other countries, accelerating the replacement of robot products. Similarly, Germany has a strong group of robotics companies, such as kuka, one of the world's four largest families. Bosch, a supplier of auto parts, has also launched its first collaborative robot, while Festo, the world's leading automation technology provider, has introduced robots such as tentacles, elephant trunks and arms, and xiongke offers a variety of grips for robots.

Sweden ranks fifth in the world in the density of industrial robots, with 233 robots per 10,000 people. Sweden's welfare system is so good that swedes are not worried about automation taking jobs. According to an industry survey, 80 percent of swedes have a positive attitude toward artificial intelligence and robotics.

At present, Sweden has formed aviation industry, nuclear industry, automobile manufacturing industry, advanced military industry and the world's leading telecommunications industry. The development of these industries provides a good scenario for the application of robots. ABB, one of the world's four largest robotics families, is a swedish-swiss joint venture. ABB is also a global leader in power and automation technology and has a strong global presence.

In addition to ABB, Sweden also has world-renowned Volvo cars, electrolux electric, skanska engineering company, SKF group, Ericsson communications company and other enterprises. Innovation and sustainability are the key to the rise of Swedish manufacturing industry. Sweden gives priority to the development of manufacturing industry. Tongjin has invested a large amount of capital to promote the upgrading and development of industry.

Denmark has the sixth highest density of industrial robots in the world. The density of robots is 211 per 10,000 people, an increase of 10 percent from 188 in 2015. 9%. As a highly developed country, Denmark has a very small gap between rich and poor. As the hometown of Hans Christian Andersen, Denmark is known as the "fairy tale kingdom" and the most developed country in the world in wind power generation, also known as the "windmill kingdom". On the economic side, food processing and agriculture, animal husbandry and fishery are relatively developed, Denmark has made drones, robotics and 3D printing three major areas of focus, and has attracted large projects from Facebook.

Denmark has become the center of European robot industry, supported by high-quality educational resources, which plays a crucial role in the development of European robot industry and manufacturing industry. Universal Robots, the world's first collaborative robot company, is based in Denmark and is currently the world's largest seller of collaborative Robots. In addition, Denmark also has danfoss such as the world famous industrial enterprises.

Italy has the eighth highest density of industrial robots in the world. The density of robots increased from 160 per 10,000 people in 2015 to 185 per 10,000 in 2016. Italy, the world's eighth-largest economy, is known for its manufacturing and small and medium-sized enterprises. The Italian machinery industry was worth €450 in 2016 and its main customers are China, Germany and the us. Italy is home to well-known robotics companies such as comac, part of the fiat group's global enterprise, which provides industrial automation systems and comprehensive maintenance services for a wide range of industries, including aircraft and automobiles.

Machine tools and robots are Italy's most technologically advanced products and its most active exporters, becoming a major importer for many countries. In some areas, Italy has surpassed Germany and Japan in terms of technology. It is reported that there are more than 50 robot manufacturers in Italy. In addition, Italian robots are leading the world in car manufacturing.

France has a density of 132 industrial robots per 10,000 people (ranked 18th in the world), well above the global average of 74, but still relatively weak compared to other eu countries, Sweden (223), Denmark (211), Italy (85) and Spain (160). Under the new government, France is restoring the competitiveness of its manufacturing sector. This could help boost the number of new robots installed in the coming years. In 2017, the number of robots installed in France increased by about 10 percent. Between 2018 and 2020, growth is likely to average between 5 and 10 per cent a year.

Britain, with 71 industrial robots per 10,000 people, is the only g7 country with a lower robot density than the world average of 74. General industry needs to make the necessary investments in modernization to boost and increase productivity. The low density of robots indicates this fact. Despite the decision to leave the eu, there are a number of investment plans on the table to help foreign and local car companies expand capacity and modernise. It is unclear whether businesses will delay investment because of the uncertainty over tariffs.

Eastern European countries Slovenia (137 robots per 10,000 people, 16th in the world) and Slovakia (135 robots per 10,000 people, 17th in the world) both have a higher density of robots than Switzerland (128 robots per 10,000 people, 19th in the world). The Czech republic ranks 20th in the world with a density of 101 units per 10,000 people. Czech and slovak robot supplies are largely dependent on demand from the car industry. Slovenia is one of the most successful Balkan countries, with 60% of robots used mainly in the automotive industry (387 per 10,000 people, up 33% from 2015).

The progress of science and technology is changing human society, and traditional industries are facing the risk of elimination. Accelerating transformation and upgrading is the inevitable choice for the future development of manufacturing industry. Not only is the labor force rising, but the use of machines and automation can not only solve the labor gap, but also improve efficiency, but also achieve the effect of rapid manufacturing to meet the needs of individual. In the future, intelligent manufacturing will provide a new experience for human life. Instead of going to the market to buy a standardized mass-produced product with many unused or unnecessary functions, users can customize the suitable products according to their own needs.

As artificial intelligence, the rapid development of Internet of things, cloud computing technology, the future of manufacturing is smarter, customized products can keep track of their products production progress, or know when to place the orders, to which the factory can order the goods as soon as possible, on the other hand, can use more machine resources. So from the level of industrial enterprises, to improve the level of automated production can preoccupy the market.
