The hottest Chinese industrial robot market will e

  • Detail

China's industrial robot market will enter a period of rapid development. In 2010, China will have more than 10000 industrial robots, accounting for about 0.6% of the global total. At the same time, the demand will exceed 3000 sets. China's industrial robot market will enter a period of rapid development. This is mainly based on the following three reasons

I. Changes in economic environment and increase in market supply and demand

after the implementation of the new labor law by the Chinese government in 2008, labor costs have increased significantly and the economic environment has changed. On the one hand, it makes some manufacturers transfer labor-intensive industries to Southeast Asian countries with lower labor costs. On the other hand, it makes local enterprises pay more attention to improving the level of factory automation

in addition, more and more international automobile manufacturers have landed in China, and the fierce market competition has stimulated the demand of Chinese local automobile manufacturers for industrial robots. For example, Chery will produce 100 welding industrial robots for its own use in 2010. At the same time, more international suppliers of industrial robots are also accelerating their entry into the Chinese market. For example, Comau, which focuses on automotive spraying and welding industrial robots, will establish Kunshan factory by the end of 2010

II. Accelerated technological development

supported by the National 863 program, more than 30 universities such as Harbin Institute of technology and Yanshan University have carried out research on industrial robots

some manufacturers of CNC machine tools and systems began to focus their future profits on industrial machines, which will also give the extruder industry an endless driving force for development. For example, Shenyang machine tool has a plan to develop industrial robots; Central China CNC and Guangzhou CNC have also begun to develop and manufacture industrial robots

international manufacturers of motion control software and sensors continue to increase exchanges with China, and Chinese industrial robot manufacturers will receive support for technical bottlenecks that were difficult to break through in the past. The advanced sensor and control technology are introduced into the robot through integration, so as to realize the self-learning function of industrial robot which is more concerned in industrial applications

III. government policies stimulate the outline of the national medium and long term science and technology development plan () and the outline of the 863 plan for the development of advanced manufacturing technology in China to provide 100million yuan of financial support for industrial robot engineering products, automatic production lines and key technologies of manipulators. At the same time, all provinces have also put forward their own support plans for the R & D and manufacturing of industrial robots. For example, Shandong Province will establish a technological innovation alliance to improve the effectiveness of robot technology inclusion by about 30% through government capital injection two years ago, and key laboratories and engineering technology research centers. At the same time, it will implement preferential measures such as 15% enterprise income tax reduction for industrial robots facing the processing and manufacturing industry

current situation of industrial robots in China

at present, what is inconsistent with the status of a major manufacturing country is that the number of applications of industrial robots in China is still relatively small, and China mainly relies on imports from Japan, Sweden, Germany, Italy and the United States. Among them, Japan accounts for about 50% and Europe for about 40%. Manufacturers mainly include FANUC, Yaskawa, abb, Comau, KUKA, Staubli, etc. At the same time, China's industrial robot manufacturing industry has just started. After buying the equipment back, the manufacturer must first understand its correct use method and the general protection level and technical content of the equipment are relatively backward. Take Xinsong company, the largest and technologically leading manufacturer at present, as an example. In 2009, it only produced more than 600 industrial robots, which is far behind the international production of thousands of robots

China's long-term implementation of the labor-intensive production mode, a large number of skilled workers and low wages, as well as policies to promote employment, have led to insufficient motivation for enterprises to upgrade production equipment and improve manufacturing automation level, as well as a small number of industrial robots
