North American based robotics manufacturers saw new orders jump 16% in units and 30% in dollars in the first quarter of 2010 when compared to 1Q 2009 according to the Robotic Industries Association.

3069 robots valued at $208.1 million were ordered by North American manufacturing companies in the first quarter of 2010. In addition to exceeding 1Q 2009, the quarter was also up 35% in units and 45% in dollars over the last quarter of 2009.

"The good news is that business is picking up, but we still have a long way to go to emerge from the impact of the financial crisis on investments in new factory automation equipment," said RIA President Jeff Burnstein.

Especially strong gains were seen in robot sales to the semiconductor/electronics/photonics industries as well as food and consumer goods. Nearly every major user industry increased its purchases in the opening quarter of 2010.
