Market Data

The German robotics and automation sector cannot escape the economic slowdown in the mechanical engineering industry: For 2019, the industry expects sales to fall by 5 percent to 14.3 billion euros.
Every six months (in January and in August) reports on the economy of the packaging machinery as well as of the automotive and supplier’s industry for important countries are issued by bfai on behalf of VDMA.


Exclusively for our members: In cooperation with EAC (Euro Asia Consulting), VDMA Robotics + Automation has elaborated a new study.
China is an important emerging market for robotics and automation. The VDMA Representative Office in Shanghai (and also in Beijing) supports VDMA R + A members with questions relating to business in China.


Just like China, India is also an important emerging market regarding robotics and automation. Therefore, the association is very much involved with the VDMA offices in India and is locally represented. The Mumbai office branch is responsible for R+A.
In India networking and exchange of ideas amony locally based members plays an important role.
