North American Robotics suppliers reported first quarter gains of 48 percent in robot units, the industry's best start since 1999, acording to the Robotics Industry Association (RIA).

A total of 3,500 robots valued at U.S. $219.5 million were ordered by North American manufacturing companies, with another 132 robots valued at $11.4 million ordered from North American robot suppliers by manufacturing companies located outside of North America.

The RIA numbers reflect strong gains in applications such as spot welding, assembly, coating/dispensing, material handling, and material removal. RIA estimates that some 128,000 robots are now being used in the U.S., placing the U.S. second only to Japan in robot use.
