2010 a Record Year for North American Robot Industry

2010 statistics released by the Robotics Industries Association (RIA) underscore the reality that more and more companies both in North America and abroad are realizing their need for industrial automation. Last year alone, combined robot orders totaled 29,034. Their total value is $1.839 billion. That's nothing to sneeze at.   

As the RIA pointed out in their report, robotics companies in North America haven't seen these kinds of robot sales since 2007! North American companies accounted for unit increases of 39% and dollar increases of 49%. Companies based outside of North America accounted for unit increases of 52% and dollar increases of 58%.

The 2010 RIA robot report also served to shed light on some of the industries that are investing in industrial automation. Leading the pack was the automotive industry with an increase of 51% in robot orders from last year. However, non-automotive industries increased their orders by 46% as well. Some of the biggest robot order increases were seen in metalworking, semi/conductor/electronics/photonics, plastics and rubber, and food and consumer goods.
