Robot Sales Continue Record Surge

May 31, 2022

North American companies started the year by purchasing the most robots ever in a single quarter, according to the Association for Advancing Automation. Q1 robot sales grew by 28 percent (in number of units) and 43 percent (in value) over the first quarter of 2021, and 7 percent and 25 percent, respectively, over the previous best quarter--Q4 of 2021.

Q1 2022 also marks the seventh out of the last nine quarters where non-automotive customers have ordered more robots than automotive customers. Unit sales to automotive OEMs climbed 15 percent during Q1 2022, while orders from automotive component companies jumped 22 percent.
