Industrial Robots Global Study:

China to overtake EU and North America by 2017

By 2017, more industrial robots will be operating in China's production plants than in the European Union or North America. Operating unit numbers there will double from today's 200,000 to more than 400,000. To compare: In North America, numbers will rise to about 300,000 - with 340,000 predicted for Europe's five largest economies.   So says the International Federation of Robotics (IFR) in its 2014 World Robot Statistics.
