Abstract

This paper shows the results of econometric analyses on the penetration of industrial robots from the viewpoint of the enterprise size. Penetration rates are greatly different between large and small enterprises. This paper makes the gap quantitatively clear. In addition to those fact analyses, the reason why smaller enterprises introduce less industrial robots was also qualitatively analyzed. The difference of wages according to the size of the enterprises has a great influence on the penetration rate. Another factor is related to economy of scale in the cost of I.R. usage, although this factor is not so important in the case of I.R. as in the case of computers.
