OK, got it, so there is a distinct difference between machines for automation and robotics, of course, and the two aren't directly related in terms of demand. Makes sense. And Ann also made the point about the cyclic nature of industrial robotic demand. Still interesting to note!

As we discuss in my blog on the robot report, and the blog's comments, the demand for industrial robots is cyclic because of their use in specific vertical markets, mostly automotive and electronics, due to cycles in the products they assemble. But that demand also fell overall by only 4%.

I know, elizabeth Interesting variance. Not sure what the difference is. Could be that the robot numbers are a brief dip in an otherwise growing market. With the huge emphasis on automation (given increases in labor costs across Asia) I would think all products related to automation would be on the rise.

This is quite interesting, coming on the heels of Ann's report that industrial robotic demand worldwide is falling. What's the difference here? I'm a bit confused.
