Growth of CLPA
These figures are self-explanatory about the development and growth on the global level.
Many member firms come crossing the boarders to join CLPA.
Though starting with only 134 member firms when CLPA was established, it is expected to reach more than 2971 member firms in financial year 2016 (as of the end of March 2017). The overseas firms account for as much as 70 % of the memberships, providing a solid evidence that the world has recognized that CC-Link IE and CC-Link have become true global standards.
A line of diversified CC-Link compatible products, as many as the number of user voices.
With the increasing number of vendor firms joining CLPA, the accumulated number of CC-Link IE and CC-Link compatible products is now over 1,600 models. Partner companies also receive the benefit of their products being promoted in various CLPA activities free of charge, including the CC-Link Product Catalog.
As a sign of our global acceptance, the total number of shipped devices is around 19 million.
The growth of the installed base is being driven by the automotive, semiconductor and LCD panel industries. We expect that this growth will continue to accelerate as industries such as food and beverage, consumer packaged goods and others adopt our technology.
