Where Should Your Robot Go?
The industrial robot, as an important part of "machine replacement", has been paid more and more attention by more and more domestic manufacturers in recent years. Driven by the strategic initiative of "Made in China 2025" and the structural shortage of labor market, China's robotics industry has entered a period of rapid growth.
China has become the world's largest consumer market for industrial robots since 2013, and it remains so far. At present, China's industrial robots have formed four industrial agglomeration areas around Bohai Rim, the Yangtze river delta, the pearl river delta and the central and western regions. Domestic industrial robot manufacturers are gradually rising and beginning to compete with YASKAWA, KUKA, FANUC and ABB in the domestic and foreign markets.
The figures show that the sales volume of industrial robots in China was 57,000 in 2014, up 55% year-on-year.Sales reached 68,000 in 2015, up 19% year-on-year.Nearly 90,000 units were sold in 2016. Based on the above factors, it can be predicted that the sales volume of China's industrial robots will reach 127,000 in 2018, and the annual compound growth rate will be about 23.24% in the next five years (2018-2022). The sales volume of China's industrial robots will reach 293,000 in 2022, which can be said that China's industrial robot market has a considerable prospect.
In recent years, with the advancement of localization of robot ontology and core parts and the acceleration of cost reduction (investment payback period shortened), artificial substitution and import substitution, a large number of domestic robot enterprises are facing the golden period of development.
With the improvement of people's requirements for product quality in the future, China's industrial manufacturing will also carry out industrial upgrading towards the direction of intensification and intelligentization. The degree of automation will be higher and higher, and the demand for automation equipment will be gradually released.
