The hottest robot market in China will exceed tril

  • Detail

China's robot market will exceed trillion yuan, and domestic robots need to break through the high-end

according to the statistics of the International Federation of robots, the total number of industrial robots sold by foreign-funded enterprises in China exceeds 27000, an increase of 20% over the previous year. According to the statistics of the International Federation of robotics, nearly 37000 industrial robots were sold in the Chinese market in 2013, accounting for about one fifth of the global sales. The total sales exceeded Japan and became the world's largest industrial robot market. The International Federation of robotics predicts that China's global robot ownership is expected to exceed 130000 units in no more than 2016, and it is also the world's largest market

I. current situation of industrial development

since 2014, although China's economy is facing great downward pressure and the industrial economy is slowing down, the overall strength of China's equipment industry has been continuously improving, especially the high-end equipment manufacturing industry such as intelligent manufacturing, which is poised to become a new highlight of the integrated development of science and technology and industry

1. China's robot market will exceed trillion yuan

according to the data of the Ministry of industry and information technology, in the first half of 2014, the output value of high-end equipment manufacturing industries such as intelligent manufacturing, high-end rail transit and ocean engineering accounted for more than 10% of the equipment manufacturing industry. Among them, the robot based intelligent manufacturing industry is widely concerned. In the context of a new round of scientific and technological revolution and industrial recovery, the competition among countries around the commanding heights of scientific and technological and industrial development is becoming increasingly fierce. Industrial robots, known as the Pearl on the crown of manufacturing, will bring great changes to the mode of manufacturing

in 2013, industrial robots showed a vigorous development trend. According to the International Federation of robotics, more than 300000 industrial robots were equipped and sold worldwide in 2013, and Asia has become the region with the highest growth rate of industrial robots in the world. According to the data, 100000 industrial robots were sold to Asia in 2013, with a year-on-year increase of 18%; China has become the largest industrial robot market in the world. In 2013, China purchased and assembled nearly 37000 industrial robots, including more than 9000 domestic robots, with the output three times that of 2012

with the improvement of technology, the advantages of robots such as low cost, high work quality, high accuracy, energy conservation and emission reduction will become more and more obvious. China's robot market will exceed 1 trillion yuan in oneortwo years. Qudaokui, chairman of China robot industry alliance, said

2. Domestic robots need to break through to the high end

it is understood that robots are most widely used in the automotive manufacturing industry. Arturo baronseli, President of the International Federation of robotics, believes that the demand for robots in the automotive industry will continue to increase in the future, especially in China, and the rapid growth of the automotive industry will become a huge driving force for the development of the robot industry

Qu Daokui predicts that after the automotive sector, electronic products, electronic communications, etc. will become an important robot market; Sanitary ware, kitchenware, ceramics and other industries are facing difficulties in recruiting workers and rising labor costs. A large number of robots will inevitably enter; In chip, photovoltaic, led, biochemical pharmaceutical and other industries, there are many conditions that are not conducive to manual work in the workshop, and the advantages of robots are also beginning to appear

however, domestic robots are far from meeting the market demand. Li Xiaojia, director of the data statistics center of China robot industry alliance, said that China purchased and assembled nearly 37000 industrial robots in 2013, of which foreign robots are generally high-end industrial robots with 6 axes or more, almost monopolizing high-end industries such as automobile manufacturing and welding, accounting for 96%. Domestic robots are mainly used in handling and loading and unloading robots, which are in the low-end field of the industry

Wang Ruixiang, President of the China Machinery Industry Federation, said that there was still a big gap between domestic robots and robots from developed countries. Previously, we could only import robots. We began to explore after the cat, but the quality and life of products did not go up, and the international brand popularity was not high. The fundamental reason was the lack of core competitiveness of technology

3. The robot industry is poised for development

the brewing and promotion of a new round of technological and industrial changes will also provide China with a rare opportunity to catch up and surpass development. Su Bo, Vice Minister of the Ministry of industry and information technology, said that the high-end equipment manufacturing industry is the core of the equipment manufacturing industry and an important symbol to measure the core competitiveness of a country's industry. We must attach great importance to it, accelerate its promotion, and strive to achieve major breakthroughs in several key areas

Su Bo proposed that we should speed up the development of key components and devices such as industrial robots, sensors, intelligent instruments and meters, focus on breaking through a number of CNC generation products and intelligent manufacturing equipment for important industries of the national economy, speed up the implementation of the special development project of intelligent manufacturing equipment, select key industries to carry out intelligent manufacturing pilot before 2020, and comprehensively implement intelligent manufacturing after 2020

international robotics experts generally believe that the development of robots will be the beginning of the third industrial revolution. At the same time, experts put forward the problems that need to be solved urgently in the robot industry in the next step: man-machine cooperation, that is, workers and robots work together in the workshop at the same time, people do more creative work with the help of robots, and robots do work with high accuracy and repeatability

Wang Ruixiang suggested that Chinese robot enterprises should establish a global vision, modestly learn from international advanced technology and management mode, rationally plan investment and research direction, cultivate their own core competitiveness, and strengthen the construction of the whole industrial chain. It will no longer be a distant dream for Chinese robots to realize man-machine cooperation and go abroad

second, industrial development is facing challenges: the gap is widened risk

1. China's strategy in the global robot industry competition

developed industrialized countries and regions are relying on their technological advantages to launch a new round of strategic layout for the robot industry. As the world's largest potential demand market, only by accelerating the pace of catch-up, can China not be pulled further and further. In recent years, with the accelerating pace of innovation and integration between artificial intelligence technology, digital manufacturing technology and mobile Internet, the development of the global robot industry is showing a new trend

according to the statistics of the international robotics Association (IFR), the average annual growth rate of newly installed industrial robots in the world reached 9% from 2002 to 2013. In 2013, the global sales of industrial robots reached 168000. Among them, thanks to the rapid growth of demand in developing countries represented by China, Asia has become the world's largest demand market. According to statistics, from 2007 to 2013, the annual compound growth rate of industrial robot sales in Asia reached 20%, and that in China reached 25%

in the face of this situation, the developed countries and enterprises in the robot industry in the world are stepping up their strategic layout to seize the commanding height of robot technology and industrial development, which makes the development of robots in China worse than that in foreign countries, and then shift the focus to other positions that need to be corrected, which is at risk of further widening the distance

therefore, it is necessary to deeply analyze the development situation and trend of foreign robot industry, in order to provide reference and Enlightenment for the development of China's robot industry

2. Developed countries seize the commanding height of industrial development

in recent years, the integration and innovation of the new generation of information technology and robot technology represented by big data, cloud computing and mobile Internet have accelerated, which will not only develop new intelligent robots with more autonomous learning ability and autonomous problem-solving ability, but also establish corresponding cloud space of interconnection and knowledge base for robots to interact through interconnection, And improve the intelligent level of robots through cloud computing

in the face of the new situation, developed industrialized countries and regions have made strategic arrangements to seize the commanding height of the development of the robot industry. The United States implements the Reindustrialization strategy. In the advanced manufacturing Partnership Program (AMP) launched in 2011, it is clear that it will revitalize the U.S. manufacturing industry through the development of industrial robots, and with the advantage of information network technology, it will invest $2.8 billion to develop a new generation of intelligent robots aimed at realizing mobile interconnection

the European Union has invested US $600million in the research and development of robots through the seventh framework plan, and plans to invest US $900million in the 2020 Horizon Project for robot manufacturing. Japan has formulated a long-term development strategy for robot technology, taking the robot industry as one of the seven key supported industries in the new industry development strategy, and increasing investment. It plans to invest 350million US dollars in the field of humanoid robots alone in 10 years. South Korea has formulated the "basic plan for intelligent robots", and released the robot future strategic outlook 2022 in October 2012, focusing on expanding the Korean robot industry and supporting domestic robot enterprises to enter overseas markets

among them, the field of service robots has gradually become the focus of development in developed countries. The United States released the robot technology roadmap: from Internet to robot in March 2013, emphasizing the important role of robot technology in the field of health care services and its potential in creating new markets, new jobs and improving people's lives. The EU said that it would work out the R & D roadmap and schedule of EU robotics, especially home service robotics, as soon as possible

Japan established robot special zones in Kanagawa and Ibaraki prefectures in 2013, with an investment of 1billion yen to promote the R & D and application of service robots such as nursing robots and disaster relief robots. South Korea put forward the development strategy of service robots in 2010, and plans to narrow the gap with developed countries by opening an innovative market. In 2012, the ten-year robot development plan was issued, with the goal of realizing one robot for each family

3. China faces the risk of widening the gap

as China has become the world's largest potential demand market, the degree of foreign well-known robot enterprises entering China continues to strengthen. The international robotics Association predicts that China is expected to become the world's largest robot market in 2014 or next year. In view of this development trend, major foreign robot enterprises are no longer satisfied with taking China as a product sales and technical service market, and begin to take China as a robot production base and go deep into the production of key components from machine assembly

for example, KUKA company of Germany built a new factory in Shanghai in October 2012, Yaskawa electric of Japan established its first overseas robot production base in Changzhou, Jiangsu Province, China in July 2012, edep robot Trading (Shanghai) Company of the United States was established in 2012, and Reis robot company of Germany established a new factory in Suzhou in 2013. Since 2013, Hyundai Heavy Industries has sought to establish production bases in China

it is worth noting that while western developed countries and major enterprises rely on their existing technological advantages to seize the commanding heights of industrial development, there is a risk that the gap between the development of China's robot industry and foreign countries will be further widened

first of all, the innovation and development of a new generation of intelligent robots is more urgent. Although China has made initial progress in the R & D and industrialization of traditional robot technology, it still lags behind in the integration of information network technology and robot technology. Internet enterprises are not aware of the development of robot technology, and no enterprise has participated in the development of robot technology and industry, which is bound to further expand the gap between China's robot technology and industry development and developed countries

secondly, foreign-funded enterprises and brands occupy the development space of China's robot enterprises. China's robot industry is still in its infancy on the whole. Industrial robots lack brand recognition. The largest robot enterprise produces only a few thousand robots a year. The robot market is basically occupied by foreign-funded enterprises and brands, including ABB in Sweden and Fanuc in Japan,
