Quest TechnoMarketing investigated both aspects. The economic situation of the industry is examined in a current industry report, published in the Quest Trend Magazine on http://www.quest-trendmagazine.com/en/machinery-industry/robotics-and-automation/robotics-and-automation-production-and-sales.html
Production and sales in the Robotics and Automation sector had already exceeded the pre-crisis level in 2010 – sales in mechanical engineering did not achieve this until 2014 and production failed to do so annually until 2017. In numbers: Sector production rose by 80% compared to the pre-crisis year 2008, and industry value resp. turnover even rose by 93%. In contrast, the machinery industry increased its sales by 9% compared to 2008, with production still 2% in 2017 below pre-crisis levels.
The industry report identifies the value of each of the four product segments like assembly lines, automatic assembly machines, assembly machines and industrial robots in euros per unit from 2008 to 2017, which can be used to derive the positioning of these product segments in the market. The average value of industrial robots has fallen continuously by 16% that of assembly lines has risen by 50%.
When Quest TechnoMarketing investigated in 2015 the use of robots in the German machinery industry until 2018, the growth expectations of machine-builders from the Robotics and Automation sector were 8% per year. The dynamic development of the sector has even exceeded these high growth expectations. The industry’s annual production growth between 2015 and 2017 was 11%.
Quest TechnoMarketing’s market survey about the use of robots shows that 51% of machine-builders in the ten automation-relevant mechanical engineering industries will use robots in 2018. Machine-builders, who use or intend to use robots, have significantly higher growth expectations than machine builders without robots. 13% annual growth in the number of machines with robots is expected until 2018.
A short report to this market survey is published in the Quest Trend Magazine on http://www.quest-trendmagazine.com/en/machinery-industry/robots/robots-in-machinery-industry-to-2018.html
The industry reports about the economic situation and the trends in automation technology make it easier for machine-builders to both classify their experiences and planning into long-term context and determine their position.
Quest Trend Magazine publishes trends in automation from the users’s point of view mainly in machinery industry, automotive and F&B industry. The economic backdrop of these trends are highlighted as well.
The trends are based on market surveys by Quest TechnoMarketing, Bochum, London, specialized in market surveys and marketing for the automation technology for more than 20 years and the publisher of the Quest Trend Magazine in English and German language.
The economic backdrop is analyzed by Quest Research, a department of Quest TechnoMarketing.
