IFR Statistical Department is collecting data for the annual international industrial robot statistics and invites all suppliers of industrial robots to participate in the annual survey World Robotics Industrial Robots. For details, please see definitions.

What is your benefit?

If you contribute to the statistics, you will receive the results (statistical data) 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.


Here is how it works:

Participation requires the submission of 2 questionnaires: Robot installations worldwide by applications and by industrial branches in 2023. Additionally we collect the number of Cobots in a separate questionnaire. There are no forward-looking items. We are going to conduct a separate forecast survey later this year.


How to participate:

Please fill your company’s data in the Excel questionnaires below and send the files to Ms. Nina Kutzbach ([email protected]) by the end of March.
