Robots are increasingly becoming the future and China is leading the race, according to data from the International Federation of Robotics (IFR).

Industrial robots in particular dominate the markets because they simply make life easier. So much so that their operational stock has tripled in 10 years.

At the end of last year, 3.02 million robots were in operation worldwide. This is a giant leap from ten years ago, in 2010, when the number of robots in operation for industrial purposes was 1.06 million.

The manufacturing industry loves robots and puts them to good use for three popular functions – material handling, welding or assembly.

Asia leads this change, according to the IFR, with China at the top of the list. In 2020, the country alone installed 168,400 industrial robots. This represented 44% of installations worldwide.
