North American based robotics companies saw orders jump 40% in units in the first half of 2010, according to figures released by the Robotic Industries Association (RIA).

A total of 6,316 robots valued at $411.4 million were ordered by North American companies through June 2010, a rise of 40% in units and 48% in dollars over the same period in 2009. When orders to companies outside of North America are included, the increases are even larger, up 54% in units and 62% in dollars.

“In North America, the biggest gains came in orders by non-automotive companies, where units rose 51%,” said RIA President Jeffrey A. Burnstein. “This is a very positive sign for our industry as it continues to expand into a wide-range of industries such as semiconductor, electronics & photonics, food & beverage, plastics & rubber, consumer goods, and life sciences. Each of these market segments posted substantial gains in the first half of 2010, while automotive orders also grew 30%.”
