Some Robot Statistics
Note that the IFR have been exceedingly optimistic in previous forecasts with sales ending up 50% of the forecast. 2009 was a praticularly bad year for robot sales because of the financial problems caused by banks. However sales have been climbing since then, approx 50% up on 2009 although still less than the boom years. Sales of ST robots are increasing because the shortage of money has led people to look at lower cost robots.
