The International Federation of Robotics has released a new report ranking top countries by robot density. According to the World Robotics 2022 Report, China has surpassed the United States for the first time. In China, the number of industrial robots to workers hit 322 units per 10,000 employees. In the U.S., robot density is 274, an increase from 255 in 2020. The report's top 5 most automated countries in manufacturing are South Korea, Singapore, Japan, Germany, and China.

According to Marina Bill, President of the International Federation of Robotics, “Robot density is a key indicator of automation adoption in the manufacturing industry around the world. “The new average of global robot density in the manufacturing industry surged to 141 robots per 10,000 employees – more than double the number six years ago. China’s rapid growth shows the power of its investment so far, but it still has much opportunity to automate.”
