The analysis of Industrial robotics' current state-of-the-art in Russia and in world was carried out on the base of report 'World Robotics 2018 Industrial Robots' on marketing researches of industrial robots by IFR statistic department and other analitical materials. Main factors affecting modern market of industrial robotics in Russia are defined, and conclusions on causes of critical situation in national robotics are drawn. Root cause of disastrous situation for industrial robotics in Russia is low purchasing power of the main body of the population. Under current conditions the only tactics for support of concerned field on Russian Federation government's part is assignment of highest economical concessionality mode for domestic integrators and other small and medium enterprises realizing automatization of real industrial processes, alongside with Russian internal market promotion measures.

Key words
Industrial robots, robotization density, industrial robots' production, industrial robots' supply, industrial automatization, national machine building, robots' integrators.

The work is financially supported by Ministry of Science and Higher Education of Russian Federation in the frame of state assignment RTC no. 075-00924-19-00.
