In 2013, Japan purchased 26,015 industrial robots, and America purchased 23,679, ranking the third in world.
In 2008-2013, the average annual growth rate of import volume of industrial robot reached as high as 36%. The growth of robot market in China was the fastest, and the market scale was far larger than the second and third largest markets.
After throughout the decline in 2009, in recent years, the industrial robot market in China has maintained strong growth all the time. In 2012, the market scale in China reached CNY 7.99 billion, and will increase to CNY 8.83 billion in 2018 with the compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10%.
