Growth of CLPA

These figures display the development and growth of CLPA related activities on a global level.

Firms from every corner of the globe join CLPA.

Though starting with only 134 member firms when CLPA was established, it peaks at just over 3300 member firms at the end of 2017. Non-Japanese 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.

As a sign of our global acceptance, the total number of shipped devices is around 22 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 the latest CLPA technology.
