In 2023, the service robotics industry enjoyed continuous strong growth. But how was it in 2024? To find out, the International Federation of Robotics invites all service robot suppliers to participate in the annual IFR service robot survey World Robotics Service Robots. Our definition of service robots also includes industrially used AMRs. Fore details, please see definitions below.

If you are interested in participating in World Robotics Industrial Robots, please refer to this page or contact [email protected]


What is your benefit?

If you contribute to the statistics, you will receive the results for free.

IFR statistics are a globally recognized source of market data that will serve you in your marketing and public relations activities as well as in your negotiations with investors and credit institutions.

As a global industry association, IFR is a not-for-profit vendor-neutral institution. You can be sure that your data is safe and that IFR complies with antitrust and privacy regulations that guarantee that individual company data will neither be revealed nor be retrievable from statistics. We also guarantee that we will never provide company rankings of any kind.

IFR members even receive a complimentary copy (PDF) of World Robotics Service Robots 2024 for free.


Here is how it works:

Participation requires just the submission of 8 numbers: Robots sold and robots offered for as-a-Service business models (fleet size), by application and type of movement, each for 2022 and 2023. There are no forward-looking items. We are going to conduct a separate forecast survey later this year.

We now offer data submission through an online tool (Netigate). Of course, traditional Excel-based submission is still available. As announced in the Robot Suppliers Committee meeting during iREX in Tokyo, we are now collecting data on mobile manipulators as a field trial. This Questionnaire is only available as Excel form.


How to participate:

Either use this link to submit your data through our online tool (Netigate) or fill your company’s data in the Excel questionnaire below and send the file to Ms. Anne Jurkat ([email protected]).


You are cordially invited to include case studies and photos (incl. captions) of your robots. Please remember to complete the permission form so that we can use these photos.

Thank you for your cooperation and support!
