Industrial robots are the key to China's manufacturing industry to become intelligent, improve production efficiency and product quality. However, under the background of the soaring sales of industrial robots in China, the market share of self-owned brand industrial robots has been low.

At present, with the advancement of China's industrial upgrading, industrial intelligent robot technology has also become a focus of manufacturing upgrades. As the branch technology in the field of intelligent manufacturing, it has the biggest gap with foreign countries, but it is also the most basic and most tested overall industry. At the level, industrial intelligent robots should undoubtedly be the focus of the future of major robotics companies. The field of industrial robots, which shoulders the possibility of subverting traditional manufacturing, still faces the challenge of rapidly improving the quality and level of robots and competing with foreign companies.

The domestic industrial robot industry is small and scattered, and the central and low-end application robots are concentrated.

So, what is the current status of industrial robots that are so important to industrial upgrading in China?

Domestic industrial robot demand is skyrocketing, and large and small companies are rushing to the beach

According to data provided by the Russian Robot Society, from 2000 to 2015, the growth rate of China's industrial robot supply has reached 17%. The density of robots used in China has reached 49 per 10,000 people. According to the high-yield research data of industrial research institutions, the output value of domestic robots reached 1.64 billion yuan in 2015, and the demand in 2015 was 65,000 units. The market share increased to 15%, and the output value increased by 55%.

In the past two years, local governments have issued nearly 80 policies related to the development of the robot industry, and 42 robot-related industrial parks have been built or proposed nationwide. Since then, in 2016, China's robotics companies have blossomed everywhere. According to statistics, as of September, the number of enterprises related to the robot industry in China has increased to 4,325.

The domestic industrial robot industry is small and scattered, mostly concentrated in low-end applications.

In fact, in the field of robot manufacturing, China is in a state of “neither big nor strong”. As early as 2013, China has become the world's largest industrial robot market. In 2014, sales reached 57,000 units, a year-on-year increase of 56%, accounting for 1/4 of global sales, up 55% year-on-year, and the number of possessions increased to 190,000 units.

However, under the background of the soaring sales of industrial robots in China, the market share of self-owned brand industrial robots has been low. In 2015, the sales volume of self-owned brand industrial robots was 22,000 units, accounting for less than 20% of the domestic market share. The share of the global industrial robot market is still less than double digits. Chinese industrial machine companies not only have a low market share, but also have small and scattered problems. By the beginning of 2016, the number of industrial robot-related enterprises in China has reached more than 1,000, but the scale is generally small. More than 90% of the robot companies have an annual output value of less than 100 million yuan. Many manufacturers sell no more than 1,000 units a year, even if it is like Shenyang New The leading domestic robots such as Song, the operating income in 2015 was only 1.69 billion yuan, which is significantly different from the operating income of the four international industrial robot manufacturers.

In addition, domestic industrial robots are mostly concentrated in low-end applications – the relatively complex multi-joint robot market, with foreign companies accounting for more than 90% of the domestic market. The high-end industrial robot market for six-axis or above, which is used in high-end industries such as automobile manufacturing and welding, is mainly occupied by Japanese and European and American companies. The domestic six-axis industrial robots account for less than 10% of the total installed capacity of industrial robots nationwide.

The types of domestic robots are mainly low-end robots such as handling and palletizing. The application fields are mostly in the fields of home appliances and basic manufacturing, and the added value is low. In 2015, although the demand for the Chinese robot market and the sales volume of domestic robot companies both increased, a considerable number of robot companies were at a loss. Therefore, China's own brand robots are at a disadvantage in terms of market share and technology. The entire robot industry is neither large nor strong.

However, in some areas, the system design and integration capabilities of Chinese robots are not bad. For example, the robot soccer team of the University of Science and Technology of China has won the ROBOCUP championship, and domestic companies can also develop some high-end industrial and medical robots. In terms of military robots, China's military and civilian industries are completely two lines from research and development, production to market sales, and military products are not subject to patent restrictions. Therefore, Chinese military robots are not inferior to the United States in local areas.

China's industrial robot industry upgrade is imminent

As China's economy enters a new normal, some traditional advantages are gradually lost. It is imperative to carry out structural reforms on the supply side and promote economic restructuring. Relevant industry experts believe that vigorously researching and developing industrial robots is the key to China's economy, especially the transformation and upgrading of manufacturing industry. However, China's industrial robots and manufacturing industry are still facing many difficulties in interactive development, and many measures need to be taken to solve them. Industrial robots have great strategic significance and are a necessary path for further upgrading of Chinese manufacturing.

The reason is that on the one hand, the total working-age population in China has declined since 2012, and it has decreased by several million per year. Labor costs have risen rapidly, and the “demographic dividend” has been greatly reduced. Many manufacturing companies have moved their factories to Southeast Asia and other labor-intensive areas, and "machine substitution" provides an important way to solve this problem.

On the other hand, industrial robots are also the key to the improvement of production efficiency and product quality in China's manufacturing industry. China's traditional manufacturing industry has long been lacking in technological innovation, equipment aging, and high energy consumption, so it has been at the low end of the value chain for a long time. The large-scale application of industrial robots can greatly improve the automation and intelligence of China's manufacturing industry, and promote the transformation of manufacturing from labor-intensive to technology-intensive, thus gaining international competitive advantage.
