Original title: The rapid development of China’s robotics industry will reach 83.9 billion yuan in market size this year
China News Service, Beijing, September 14 (Reporter Du Yan and Chen Hang) At present, China’s robot market has entered a period of steady growth. The “China Robotics Industry Development Report (2021)” (referred to as “Report”) released during the 2021 World Robot Conference shows that even if affected by the epidemic, the scale of China’s robot market has declined slightly, but a large number of “non-contact” services are also robots. Provides a broader application space. In 2021, China’s robot market is expected to reach 83.9 billion yuan.
Today, the reporter learned from the Organizing Committee of the 2021 World Robotics Conference that this report was released by the Chinese Institute of Electronics. The report pointed out that robots are known as “the jewel at the top of the manufacturing crown”, and their R&D, manufacturing, and application are important indicators to measure the level of technological innovation and high-end manufacturing in a country. The national “14th Five-Year Plan” outline clearly pointed out that to promote the optimization and upgrading of the manufacturing industry, deepen the implementation of intelligent manufacturing and green manufacturing projects, cultivate advanced manufacturing clusters, and promote the innovative development of high-end manufacturing industries including robots. In recent years, China’s robot industry has developed rapidly. Even if affected by the epidemic, China’s industrial robot market will still contribute about 40% of the world’s share in 2020, and has been the world’s largest consumer of robots for many years.
The global market keeps growing
The report shows that in 2021, the scale of the global robot market will continue to grow, but the growth rate has slowed down due to the epidemic. Since 2019, the industrial robot market has experienced negative growth again. Service and special robots have increased in “non-contact” use scenarios due to the epidemic. The growth rate is relatively stable.
In 2021, the global robot market is expected to reach 33.58 billion U.S. dollars, and the average growth rate from 2016 to 2021 is about 11.5%. Among them, industrial robots were US$14.49 billion, service robots were US$12.52 billion, and special robots were US$6.57 billion. As the epidemic is brought under global control, the robot market will gradually pick up. It is estimated that by 2023, the global robot market will exceed 47.7 billion U.S. dollars.
China’s robot market has entered a period of steady growth
The report pointed out that at present, China’s robot market has entered a period of steady growth. Although the scale of China’s robot market has declined slightly during 2019 due to fluctuations in market demand, due to the first breakthrough in the impact of the epidemic, the robot market has shown an accelerated recovery trend, and a large number of “contactless” services have also provided a broader range of robot applications. Space.
According to the report, in 2021, China’s robot market is expected to reach 83.9 billion yuan, with an average growth rate of 18.3% from 2016 to 2023. Among them, industrial robots are 44.57 billion yuan, service robots are 30.26 billion yuan, and special robots are 9.07 billion yuan.
Among them, China’s industrial robots have begun to recover, with an increase of 18.8% compared to the annual installed capacity in 2019. It is estimated that in 2021, the scale of China’s industrial robot market will reach 44.57 billion yuan; by 2023, the domestic market will further expand, and demand in medical, education, and public services will become the main driving force. It is estimated that in 2021, China’s service robot market will reach 30.26 billion yuan, higher than the growth rate of the global service robot market; by 2023, with the rapid development of emerging scenarios and products such as vision-guided robots and accompanying service robots, the Chinese service robot market The scale is expected to exceed 60 billion yuan.
The use of special robots in China continues to expand, and the application market is gaining momentum. Due to China’s vast territory, volatile climate, complex geological conditions, and obvious characteristics of diversified social development, there is an outstanding demand for special robots in response to earthquakes, floods, extreme weather, and public safety events such as mine disasters, fires, and security. Since 2016, the average annual growth rate of China’s service robot market has reached 27.5%. In 2021, China’s special robot market is expected to reach 9.07 billion yuan, a growth rate of 36.3%, higher than the global level; by 2023, the domestic market for special robots is expected to exceed 18 billion yuan.
Rapid breakthroughs in key technologies of Chinese robots
The report pointed out that at present, China’s industrial robot research and development takes breakthroughs in the key core technologies of robots as the primary goal, and the government, industry, university, research and research work together to continuously improve the domestic replacement rate of core links such as reducers, controllers, servo motors, and operating systems. In addition, the level of intelligence and personalization of service robots has been rapidly improved, and the demand for special robots has continued to expand, pushing China’s robot industry to a new level of development.
The report suggests to further clarify the target positioning of the development of the robot industry, give full play to the advantages of reasonable guidance and precise support of policies, and focus on breaking through the shortcomings of key core technologies. At the same time, combining regional characteristics and industrial foundations, we will find a reasonable entry point for robot applications to accelerate the agglomeration of the robot industry by promoting production, and gradually radiate from the regional advantages to the surroundings to enhance the overall competitiveness of China’s robot industry.
The report also recommends that it is necessary to actively promote the application demonstration of robots in sub-industries, accelerate the construction of high-quality application scenarios for intelligent robots; improve the level of public services for robots, focus on the construction of robot standards and testing and certification systems; effectively broaden the investment and financing channels for robot companies. Accelerate the construction of talent echelons in the robotics industry at all levels; actively build an open resource sharing platform for the robotics industry to promote high-quality in-depth international cooperation.
