Automation Presence Increases in Mexico

May 4, 2017 has over 35 years of global experience in robotic integration. The experts at were pleased to hear that the automation manufacturing industries is continuing to grow rapidly into Mexico. This is an automation victory for Mexico and representatives look forward to seeing what is to come. ​


Automa­tion man­u­fac­tur­ing is rapid­ly being inte­grat­ed into Mex­i­co and sup­pli­ers here at Robots​.com couldn’t be more thrilled. The rep­re­sen­ta­tives at Robots​.com have a lot of expe­ri­ence with the inte­gra­tion and sup­ply of robot­ics in Mex­i­co. Our 35 years of glob­al expe­ri­ence of robot­ic inte­gra­tion com­bined with our large indus­tri­al robot inven­to­ry and robot part sup­ply enable us to make glob­al robot inte­gra­tion fast and pain­less. In hon­or of Cin­co de Mayo, we believe it to be fit­ting to cel­e­brate the automa­tion vic­to­ry in store for Mex­i­co by shar­ing their great suc­cess thus far. 

In just ten years, from 2002 – 2012, Mex­i­can auto­mo­tive exports increased by 152% mak­ing them 7th in glob­al auto pro­duc­tion; in 2014, Mex­i­co account­ed for 3.7 per­cent share of the glob­al vehi­cle pro­duc­tion (1). The con­tin­ued increase in man­u­fac­tur­ing in auto­mo­tive, elec­tron­ics, machin­ery, appli­ances, and aero­space offers sig­nif­i­cant invest­ment oppor­tu­ni­ties for growth. In 2015, more than 6, 320 robot­ic units (more than $243 mil­lion) were sold into Mex­i­co and the num­bers only con­tin­ue to scale at sig­nif­i­cant lev­els (1). Accord­ing to the Unit­ed States Depart­ment of Com­merce, also in 2015, Mex­i­co sur­passed Cana­da as the largest pur­chas­er of U.S. automa­tion exports (2). Mex­i­co was the largest pur­chas­er of U.S.-made elec­tri­cal relays and indus­tri­al con­trols (around $472 mil­lion) and they also account­ed for one-fifth of all U.S. elec­tric motor and actu­a­tor exports ($926 mil­lion). At $2.2 tril­lion, Mex­i­co is the 11thlargest glob­al econ­o­my and home to 20+ auto­mo­tive assem­bly plants includ­ing BMW, Mer­cedes, Audi, Ford, Chrysler, and Nissan. 

The man­u­fac­tur­ing pres­ence in Mex­i­co is ranked 8th place among 40 coun­tries in the 2016 Glob­al Man­u­fac­tur­ing Com­pet­i­tive Index (1). Their exist­ing lib­er­al trade poli­cies and open economies are favor­able for OEMs. Sev­er­al robot­ics indus­try play­ers such as Fanuc, KUKA, and ABB now have a very strong pres­ence in Mexico. 

To help the coun­try learn more about the process of automa­tion and inte­gra­tion, the Asso­ci­a­tion for Advanc­ing Automa­tion (A3) has launched A3 Mex­i­co. It will serve as a net­work­ing hub and help fos­ter rela­tion­ships between entre­pre­neurs, investors, ven­dors, cus­tomers, stu­dents, edu­ca­tors, sci­en­tists, jour­nal­ists, and indus­try ana­lysts. It is an umbrel­la group for Robot­ic Indus­tries Asso­ci­a­tion (RIA), Advanc­ing Vision and Imag­ing (AIA), and the Motion Con­trol and Motor Asso­ci­a­tion (MCMA). A3 will pro­vide edu­ca­tion ini­tia­tives, career devel­op­ment, robot installer cer­ti­fi­ca­tion, and guid­ance and sup­port for robot­ics and advanced automa­tions stake­hold­ers. Jeff Burn­stein, Pres­i­dent of A3, says We see sol­id growth in the use of automa­tion and robot­ics in Mex­i­co, which cur­rent­ly does not have an asso­ci­a­tion that can help with train­ing, guide­lines, and over­all need­ed sup­port.” This will only con­tin­ue to increase the pool of skilled Mex­i­can labor to con­tin­ue to be trained in elec­tron­ics and the auto­mo­tive indus­tries. Accord­ing to A3, the man­u­fac­tur­ing future in Mex­i­co also looks promis­ing for the food and bev­er­age indus­try and the med­ical device market.

Our experts at Robots​.com have worked hard to build rela­tion­ships with each man­u­fac­tur­er (Fanuc, KUKA, ABB, and Motoman) and because of this we can offer the most accu­rate and knowl­edge­able ser­vices to our cus­tomers. No mat­ter your loca­tion on the globe, we are ready to offer you a suc­cess­ful, quick, and pur­pose­ful inte­gra­tion on your pro­duc­tion line that will help you improve your ROI. We look for­ward to work­ing with you; con­tact us online or at 8777626881.
