Na­tion slows global ro­bot sales growth

China Daily (Canada) - - BUSINESS -

Global in­dus­trial ro­bot sales growth slowed to 12 per­cent in 2015 weighed by a sharp fall in top buyer China, data from the In­ter­na­tional Fed­er­a­tion of Robotics showed on Wed­nes­day. The fig­ure was less than half the 29 per­cent ad­vance seen in 2014 but re­vised up from a pre­vi­ous IFR es­ti­mate of 8 per­cent due to more data from na­tional as­so­ci­a­tions. Growth in ro­bot sales in China slowed to 17 per­cent from 56 per­cent but the coun­try still ac­counted for more than a quar­ter of the 248,000 ro­bots sold.
