Save-the-date: New World Robotics Report 2018 - "How the robotics boom changes industry and people's life worldwide"
International Federation of Robotics presents World Robotics Report 2018:
- Press conference - October 18th (Thursday) at 10:00 in Tokyo -IFR President, Junji Tsuda - IFR Vice President, Steven Wyatt - IFR Statistical Department, Gudrun Litzenberger
Industrial robots are the crucial part of digitalization of the manufacturing industry around the world. The new World Robotics Report by the International Federation of Robotics (IFR) shows that a record of 381.000 units have been shipped globally - plus 30 percent. Sales value increased by 21 percent to a new peak of US$16.2 billion. At the same time total number of professional service robots sold rose by 85 percent.
The new World Robotics Report 2018 shows where Asia, America and Europe now stand in the automation race. How will the conquest of industrial robots progress in the automotive and electronics sectors or even completely new fields of application until 2021 and how does the service robots sector evolve?
The International Federation of Robotics invites journalists to a press conference for the publication of the World Robotics Report 2018:

World Robotics Report - Industrial Robots: This unique report provides global statistics on industrial robots in standardized tables and enables national comparisons to be made. It contains statistical data from around 40 countries broken down into areas of application, industrial sectors, types of robots and other technical and economic aspects. Production, export and import data is listed for selected countries. It also describes the trends in relation to robot density, e.g. the number of robots per 10,000 employees in relevant sectors.
World Robotics Report - Service Robots: This unique report provides global statistics on service robots, market analyses, case studies and international research strategies on service robots. The study is jointly prepared with our partner Fraunhofer IPA, Stuttgart.
