QY Research offers their $2,200 report on the Global and China Vision Guided Robotics Industry and predicts steady growth for the industry segment through 2019.

Another $1,500 report by Research in China covers the manufacture of speed reducers in China, a core component of the motors and gears that are part of all robots. The report predicts a doubling of output from 244,000 in 2013 to 461,000 in 2016. Because the focus is China, many new vendors come to light in the report.

Wintergreen Research has a $7,800 report on the logistics and material handling robotics marketplace. The report predicts the market segment will reach $31.3 billion by 2020 and includes companies that provide palletizing and de-palletizing robots, material handling robots, life science and pharmaceutical logistics robots, food and beverage logistics robots, semiconductor and electronics handling robots to name just a few.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
