Studies and Statistics of World Wide Robotics
The IFR Statistical Department, located at the VDMA Robotics + Automation trade association, provides industry data for the following statistical yearbooks:
World Robotics - Industrial Robots: This unique report provides worldwide statistics on industrial robots in uniform tables and enables meaningful country comparisons. It contains statistical data from about 40 countries, broken down by application, industry sector, robot type and other technical and economic aspects. Production, export and import data are listed for selected countries. Robot density, i.e. the number of robots per 10,000 employees, is also provided as a measure of the degree of automation.
World Robotics - Service Robots: This unique report provides worldwide statistics on service robots, market analysis, and sales forecasts for service robots in business and private applications. The study is prepared in cooperation with our partner Fraunhofer IPA, Stuttgart.
The International Federation of Robotics is the voice of the global robotics industry. IFR represents national robotics associations, educational institutions, and robot manufacturers from more than twenty countries. IFR was founded in 1987 as a non-profit organization. More at: www.ifr.org
