The Robotic Age is Here – Industrial Robot Market Statistics

September 2013 – Industrial robots are a common sight on the factory floor, particularly in automotive markets. They offer high-precision handling and speed, and reduce operator risk, such as worker exposure to hazardous materials, and to production dangers in general. In the near future, industrial robots will include those that cooperate with humans, instead of replacing them. This will open up new potential for utilizing robots in factories and in the agricultural market, as well as for domestic purposes.

Heavy Industry Drives the Industrial Market

September 2013 – Year-over-year heavy duty transportation market sales growth slowed substantially starting in 4Q11 and has been negative in 1Q13 and 2Q13, while sequentially, 2Q13 sales increased 3.8% vs 1Q13.

Industrial Robotics Market Sales and Growth Forecast

May 21, 2013 – A record number of industrial robots were sold in 2011, with a worldwide increase of 38% over 2010, reaching 166,000 units. Arthur Visser looks at the potential for industrial robots in 2012 and beyond.

What’s Next in Factory Automation?

August 2013 – The Internet of Things (IoT) will allow every thing with a unique identifier to communicate over the Internet or a similar network. Microprocessors will be embedded in everyday objects and the factory floor will be no exception. How far along are these developments? And what will they mean for the connectors of the future?
