Use of robotics in the manufacturing sector in India has been steadily growing. Robots have been playing integral roles in some day to day activities like River Cleaning, Construction, car manufacturing, Defence, etc. Indian markets are competing globally for automation is need of the time. As per the current scenario, manufacturing the required components within the country rather than importing them will drastically bring down the costs and promote the whole ‘Make in India’ ideology. “As per the World Industrial Robotics Report 2017 by International Federation of Robotics, sale of robots in India increased by 27% in 2016. This is expected to triple by 2020 with a compound annual growth rate of 26%. We are hoping that combined efforts of the Government, the industrial sector and various training institutes, industrial robotics can grow in India steadily and put the country on a fast track to unprecedented progress and development,” said Mr Raj Manek, Executive Director and Board Member of Messe Frankfurt Asia Holding Ltd.
