North America-based robotics companies reported strong growth in 2010 and had their best year since 2007, according to statistics released by the Robotic Industries Association (RIA).

North American robot suppliers reported orders of 13,174 robots valued at $845.6 million from North American companies, for increases of 39% in units and 49% in dollars. When orders from customers outside North America are included the totals are 15,860 robots valued at $993.2 million, gains of 52% in units and 58% in dollars.

“It was a great year for the robotics industry, not just in North America, but worldwide,” said Jeff Burnstein, president of RIA. “The demand for robotics took off once the ‘Great Recession’ ended, as companies resumed investments in technology that improves productivity, quality, flexibility and time to market, key benefits of robotics.”

RIA estimates that some 200,000 industrial robots are now used in the United States, placing the United States second only to Japan in overall robot use. More than one million industrial robots are used worldwide.
