6 ConclusionIndustrial robotics: 2011 most successful year ever, however only small growth (~2.3%) in EU expected in standard applications.New trends create additional opportunities of using industrial robots.Service robots on the rise in 2011 (and beyond): 4.56bn (professional SR, +9.2%) bn (domestic SR, +14.6%) US$5.2bn sales (IR: 8.5).Professional service robotics:Strong European positionStrong components base enabling professional service robots designsHowever, extensive SW-costs constitute a major risk in SR developmentDomestic service robots: still relatively weak EU position.
