 Junji Tsuda, chairman of the International Federation of robotics, said: "robot density is a good comparison standard to compare the difference in the automation of manufacturing in various countries". "Because of the large increase in the number of equipment demand in Asian robots in recent years, the region has the highest growth rate." From 2010 to 2016, the average annual growth rate of Asian robot density was 9%, the Americas 7%, and Europe 5%.
The main kinetic energy of the growth of the global industrial robot is from Asia. The industrial robot applications in Asia are: Korea, Singapore, Japan and China (including Taiwan, China), and the industrial robots in Korea and China are strong.
The development of robot density in China is the most dynamic in the world. As a result of the significant growth of robot sales, especially between 2013 and 2016, the density of Chinese manufacturing robots increased from 25 per 10000 in 2013 to 68 per 10000 in 2016, the twenty-third place in the world. The Chinese government intends to make China one of the top 10 countries with the highest level of automation before 2020. By 2020, the density of China's manufacturing robots will increase to 150 per 10000. In addition, China's goal is to sell 100 thousand domestic industrial robots in 2020 (27 thousand sales of China's robot suppliers in 2017, and 60 thousand foreign robot suppliers).
Korea is by far the highest density robot in manufacturing industry in the world, which has been in the leading position since 2010. South Korea's robot density is eight times that of the global average (reaching 631 units / 10000 people). This high growth rate is the result of the massive installation of robots, especially in the electrical / electronic industry and the automotive industry.
Singapore ranked second in the world, and the density of manufacturing robots in 2016 was 488 units / million. In Singapore, about 90% of robots are used in the electronics industry.
Japan ranked fourth. In 2016, the density of manufacturing robots was 303 units / million, second only to Germany. Japan is a famous robot manufacturing country in the world. In 2016, it produced 153 thousand robots and set a new record in history, accounting for 52% of the global robot supply in 2016.
North America
In 2016, the density of robot manufacturing in the US increased significantly to 189 units / 10000, ranking seventh in the world. Since 2010, the modernization of domestic production facilities has promoted the sale of robots in the United States. The main impetus for this growth is the continuous trend of production automation, which aims to strengthen the status of American industry in the global market and to maintain its manufacturing industry at home and, in some cases, back to the manufacturing market abroad. As the main customer of industrial robots, the automobile industry still occupies a leading position. Sales in 2016 accounted for about 52% of total sales. Robot sales in the United States will continue to grow between 2017 and 2020, averaging at least 15% annually.
The density of manufacturing robots in Canada is also on the rise, reaching 145 per 10000 in 2016 (the thirteenth place in the world). The growth momentum is mainly from the auto industry.
Mexico is the main production center of automobile manufacturers and auto parts suppliers, exporting to the United States and more and more South American countries. Mexico's automobile industry is the main customer of robots. In 2016, the share of robots in the automotive industry accounted for 81%. At present, Mexico's manufacturing robot density is 31 Units / 10000, still far below the global average, ranking thirty-first.
The highest degree of automation in Europe is Germany, and the manufacturing robot density ranks third in the world, to 309 units / million. In 2016, the annual supply and operational stock of German industrial robots accounted for 36% and 41% of the total European robot sales respectively. In 2018-2020 years, the annual supply of German robots will continue to grow at least 5% a year, the main driving force of growth is based on the increasing demand for robots in the general industry and the auto industry.
The density of French manufacturing robots is 132 units / 10000 (eighteenth in the world), much higher than the world average level, but relatively weak compared with other EU countries. EU member states such as Sweden (223 units / million), Denmark (211 units / million), Italy (185 Taiwan / million people) and Spain (160 Taiwan / million) are all higher than France. But under the leadership of the new government, France is restoring the competitiveness of the manufacturing sector, which may, to a certain extent, push the speed of installing new robots in the next few years. In 2017, the number of robot equipment in France is expected to increase by about 10%. In 2018-2020 years, the average annual growth rate may be between 5% and 10%.
As the sole G7 country, the density of British manufacturing robots is lower than the global average, with only 71 units / 10000, ranking twenty-second. In order to improve the modernization and productivity, the general industry needs to increase investment in robot demand. The lower density of the robot shows the fact. Despite the decision to leave the European Union, there are many investment plans for the expansion and modernization of foreign and local car companies. It is not yet clear whether the company will recover its investment due to uncertainty in tariffs.
The Eastern European countries, Slovenia (137 / 10000, sixteenth) and Slovakia (135 / 10, and seventeenth in the world), have a higher density of robots than Switzerland (128 / 10000 people, nineteenth). Czech Republic (ranked twentieth, 101 / 10). The sales of robots in Czech Republic and Slovakia depend largely on the needs of the automotive industry. Slovenia is one of the most successful in the Balkans, which accounts for 60% of the total number of robots in the automotive industry.
