China's demographic dividend inflection point and the acceleration of "4.0" industrial era coming, further promoted the application of the outbreak of the market, huge market potential is infinite opportunities at the same time, also brought new challenges to domestic robot industry.
2015 is the most critical year for domestic robot development, and the industrial inflection point will come to the future.
In high annual meeting of the robot, the robot completely chairman Dr Jack zhang, siasun robot President dao-kui qu, Shanghai fanuc robotics: laser Dr Shen laid-off, deputy general manager, the vice President 陈燚, zhejiang hong-bo zheng, general manager of the robot, nachi nachi business planning department long wang Yang six robots at home and abroad industry bosses respectively around "in the next three years, China's robot market war heats up", "4.0 development thought with Chinese industrial robot industry", "robot and" smart "China times", "robot and intelligent manufacturing platform of Chinese innovation", and other issues, a speech more than more than 400 witnessed the robot industry elite the robot industry gluttonous feast.
China's robot market "war" will heat up
"Competition in the domestic robot market has tended to be white-hot." In the face of the explosive growth of the robot industry in 2014, Dr. Zhang xiaofei, chairman of gaoworkers robot, warned about the current development of the robot industry at the annual meeting.
In 2015, a revolution in "machine change" was being staged across the country. The market size of industrial robots has been estimated to reach $1.8 trillion by 2025, after a clear signal from the state that industrial support policies are being issued. Market participants are increasing rapidly at the rate of two robots a week. The industry asserts that this manufacturing "crown jewel" will usher in a new era.
In 2015, 455, 000 industrial robots were added to the Chinese market, up 35 per cent year on year, according to statistics from the institute of advanced robotics industry (GRII). In the next three years, the production capacity of mainstream ontology manufacturers will be put into production. The market demand will continue to expand, and China's industrial robot market will maintain a high growth rate. In 2017, the market will be expected to increase by 6.42 million.
On the surface, a thriving domestic robot market, but in high Dr Robot chairman jack zhang's eyes, is hidden under the busy falling profits on the surface of the crisis, increased competition.
In fact, nearly two years of robot fever has caused many competitors to enter. As of the end of 2015, the number of robot related enterprises in China reached 488, an increase of 235 over the previous year, GRII said.
On the other hand, the rapidly increasing merger and acquisition of new enterprises and large enterprises, the dominant merger and purchase market of listed companies will further lead to the intensification of competition.
"Unlike the consolidation phase of the general industry, the robotics industry has been integrated from the start." Zhang said that 15 new companies had entered the robot business in 2015, bringing the total to 42.
"The downward trend in the price of robot monomers is clear. In the next few years, the price of robot ontology will fall by more than 10%." "Said Dr. Zhang.
Even robot product prices drop significantly, but Dr Jack zhang still said, "the industrial robot competition has just begun, robots in the future will be a technology, such as channel, brand competition."
Dr Zhang's view is echoed by qu daokui, President of xinsong robot. "The future of competition, not integration, is being integrated." Qu daokui was outspoken.
China "intellectual construction" in industry 4.0 mode
"Industry 4.0 is the new game in manufacturing mode, and if you don't participate in the future, you will lose competitive advantage." "Qu said.
Mr Qu said that the world now faces a time of technological change, whether in the us manufacturing Renaissance or the eu's industrial 4.0 strategy, which is important for robotics. In the future, the digital production of robot Internet will greatly change manufacturing.
During premier li keqiang's visit to Germany in October 2015, the two sides jointly issued the outline of cooperation between China and Germany and announced that the two countries will carry out "industrial 4.0" cooperation.
Industry 4.0 has also risen to national level, and Chinese investors, who understand China's political economy, have been driven by a wave of industrial 4.0 and robotics.
"Industry 4.0 is, in fact, a platform for information technology, and intelligent robotics support." 4.0 dao-kui qu, said the industry is using the digital and network technology, will be more powerful machine group of connected, realize information sharing between machine, since the phase control, optimization, and intelligent production on its own.
In fact, industry 4.0 and robotics are driving a wave of intellectual development in China.
"Industrial robots are automated unmanned production lines with new processes." Vice President: laser 陈燚 said, who can replace manual equipment should be called a robot, and the robot can also form a complete production line, completely replace the manual.
陈燚 said the family in laser for Hitachi elevator (China), developed by affiliated heavy industry, zhengzhou yutong bus companies such as laser cutting the flexible production line, realized the fiber laser cutting machine and automatic production line and perfect, effectively reduce the labor intensity, greatly improve the working efficiency, at the same time to fill the domestic blank, breaking the monopoly.
In addition to being able to do a lot of work with people's hands, robots are actually replacing people's foot movements and production sites in large areas.
As an alternative to the feet, the AGV robot is the most domestically produced robot in China.
According to the GRII statistics, the market share of domestic AGV robots is 78.13% in the domestic market, which mainly includes low-load products.
"Mobile robots in the future will be with the new material, new structure and new energy technology, and artificial intelligence technology development to a new bionic institutions, at the same time, pay more attention to standardization and modularization technology research and development." Zheng hongbo, general manager of zhejiang national robot technology co., LTD. (hereinafter referred to as "the national robot"), explains the trend of mobile robot industry.
At present, China has successfully made its way into the national power grid, with the robot being able to make its own technology difficult and high. In the view of zheng hongbo, there is still a lot of market space left for the development of domestic robot enterprises in AGV.
"The AGV market is mainly occupied by domestic enterprises, and it is difficult for foreign companies to enter the field in the future," said Dr Zhang.
Foreign companies are speeding up the beach
Although China as early as in 2013, has become the world's largest robot application market, but in domestic lead is robot enterprises abroad, represented by European and Japanese foreign robot occupied the domestic market more than 90% of the market.
Moreover, in the face of the temptation of China's tens of billions of robot market cakes, the localization of foreign companies in China is accelerated.
"Fanuc has more than 30,000 robot installations in China, and the number of intelligent machines in total is over 120,000, with the market share first." Shanghai fanuc robotics co. LTD. Deputy general manager shen gang said.
As one of the world's most diverse FA, robot and intelligent machinery manufacturers, welding, coating of fanuc, handling and assembly robots have been widely used in China's automobile industry all kinds of process, and has become the automotive, electronics, pharmaceutical and other industries automation of the key equipments on the production line.
, such as the intellectual nachi foreign-funded enterprises to enter the Chinese market is not long, but in a short span of four years, the industrial robot of nachi average annual sales were growing at a rate of two to three times and has its branches in Shanghai, Beijing, guangzhou, changchun, chongqing and other places, and set up factories in jiangsu zhangjiagang also will be officially opened in 2013.
In addition, as the main force in the Chinese market, the guangdong kaibao robot has been invested in the 3C market in recent years.
"Guangdong KaiBao robot sales in China is the biggest four axis robot (scara robot), linear motor, screw sliding table and walking robot axis, company on 3 c market, in the next few years will be the biggest energy in the industrial robot."
Dao-kui qu also think that automobile industry application of robot has been mature, 3 c (computer, phone, etc.) industry is the future potential big market, home appliance industry has been growing, now in the future the demand of the hardware of grinding, polishing is very big also. In the next few years, 3C, home appliances and hardware will be the rapid development of Chinese robot market.
