Robotics drives automotive, industrial electronics manufacturing opportunities

By Staff

China is the world’s largest country consumer of industrial robots. According to Robotics Business Review, in two years there will be more industrial robots in China than either the EU or North America. China also reveals a rising trend in the annual sales of passenger car sales.

A recent report by investment bank Deutsche Bank highlights some of these emerging trends.
