Japan is the world’s primary industrial robotic producer – delivering 45% of the worldwide provide. That is the important thing discovering of a examine revealed by the Worldwide Federation of Robotics (IFR) forward of the Worldwide Robotic Exhibition (iREX), working in Tokyo till 12 March 2022.
In recent times, the nation’s robotic suppliers have elevated their manufacturing capability significantly: Their export ratio rose to 78% in 2020, when 136,069 industrial robots have been shipped.
36% of the Japanese exports of robotics and automation expertise have been destined for China. Like different worldwide robotic suppliers, Japanese producers additionally serve the Chinese language market immediately from their factories in China. These factories on the world’s largest marketplace for industrial robots proved to be a serious benefit in 2020, when worldwide provide chains have been disrupted as a result of Covid-19 pandemic. Japanese suppliers have been capable of profit comprehensively from the Chinese language post-crisis increase that began within the second quarter of 2020 and gained momentum within the second half of the yr.
With a market share of twenty-two%, the USA is the opposite prime marketplace for Japanese exports of robotics and automation expertise. Each international locations – the US and China – are anticipated to additional rebound from the Covid-19 pandemic. Along with the home market, the foremost export locations will safe demand for Japanese robotics.
“This yr’s iREX exhibition in Tokyo will give attention to methods in direction of a friendlier society, bridged by robots. iREX will show how robots are more and more shaping our every day lives,” says Dr Susanne Bieller, basic secretary of the Worldwide Federation of Robotics.
