During the year, the industry financing exceeded 20 billion, and the “14th Five-Year Plan” robot will enter the “high-end lane”

It’s hard to imagine a used oneIndustrial RobotAfter a series of transformations, the act of sewing needles on grapes can be achieved.

On October 7th, an UP master of station B, “Zhihui Jun”, posted avideointroduced him by integrating various systems and equipment into a second-hand robotic arm-type industrialRobotIt was transformed into an interactive Robot, and through remote control, it finally realized the action of sewing needles on a grape.this onevideoIt has received 5.37 million views and 20,000 comments. Many netizens said in the video, “Zhihui Jun’s video met my expectations for robots.”

The video of “Zhihui Jun” reflects some of the achievements of the rapid development of my country’s robot industry in recent years. During the period from 2016 to 2020, the overall scale of my country’s robot industry has grown rapidly. In 2020, the operating income exceeded 100 billion yuan for the first time; it has been widely used in 52 major industries and 143 industries in the national economyapplication.

On December 28, 15 departments including the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology jointly issued the “14th Five-Year Plan” Robot Industry Development Plan (hereinafter referred to as the “Plan”), which will further promote the high-end development of the robot industry.

Lu Zhangyuan, director of the High-tech Robotics Industry Research Institute, told a reporter from China Times that in 2021, as the first year of the “14th Five-Year Plan”, China’s robot industry has entered a stage of rapid industrialization, with continuous enrichment of product forms and obvious technological progress. At the same time, the penetration rate of downstream applications of robots continues to increase. Robots have been applied in large quantities in industries such as automobiles, 3C, new energy, metal machinery, chemical plastics, food and beverage, etc. At the same time, it is foreseeable that the demand for robots is being strengthened. User awareness and acceptance have improved significantly.

Since the beginning of this year, the robot industry has raised more than 20 billion yuan

Robots are known as “the pearl at the top of the manufacturing crown”. They are an important symbol to measure a country’s technological innovation and high-end manufacturing level, and also a key carrier to realize intelligent manufacturing.

In recent years, my country has introduced various support policies to promote the development of the robot industry, aiming to accelerate the upgrading process of my country’s manufacturing industry. In 2013, my country has become the world’s largest robot market. In 2020, the operating income exceeded 100 billion yuan for the first time, and the output of industrial robots reached 212,000 units.

Since the beginning of this year, robot sales have continued to grow. According to the national industrial robot output data from January to November 2021 previously released by the National Bureau of Statistics, China’s industrial robot output in November was 31,915 units, a year-on-year increase of 27.9%. From 1 to 11 months, the cumulative output was 330,098 units, with a cumulative growth rate of 49%.

In addition, as one of the main downstream of the manufacturing industry, the growth rate of industrial robots has been affected by the prosperity of the manufacturing industry.

Fu Linghui, a spokesman for the National Bureau of Statistics, said that in November, the added value of high-tech manufacturing industries above designated size increased by 15.1% year-on-year, 0.4 percentage points higher than the previous month; manufacturing investment was adjusted and optimized. From January to November, manufacturing investment was year-on-year. From January to November, the investment in my country’s high-tech manufacturing industry increased by 22.2% year-on-year.

The boom in the robotics industry has brought a considerable amount of financing. According to the reporter’s incomplete statistics, since the beginning of this year, more than 20 companies have completed large-scale financing of more than 100 million yuan, and the total financing amount has exceeded 20 billion yuan. And the relevant financing is mainly concentrated in the B round and its related financing stage. Among them, there are 5 angel rounds, 6 Pre-A rounds/Pre-A+ rounds, 13 A/A+ rounds, 26 B/B+ rounds, 16 C/C+ rounds, and 3 D rounds.

However, since the third quarter, the robot industry has faced a slowdown in production growth. According to MIR Rui industrial statistics, robot shipments in the third quarter increased by 28.7% year-on-year to 61,600 units.

In 2021, China’s industrial robot industry can be summed up as opening high and going low.” Lu Zhangyuan said that the industrial robot industry grew rapidly in the first half of the year, and the growth rate in the second half of the year declined significantly, largely due to the impact of the macro environment and rising raw material prices. , the shortage of chips, and the combined impact of the increased power limit.

CDB Securities analyst Cui Guotao pointed out in the research report that the current external environment is more complex, commodity prices are still relatively high, and mid- and downstream enterprises are still generally facing certain cost pressures. The PMI new order index in November was 49.4%, showing that downstream Demand is still relatively insufficient, superimposed on the situation that the epidemic is spreading in many places, the basis for the recovery of the manufacturing industry may not be stable, and the short-term profitability of the robotics sector is still under certain pressure.

Focus on high-end future

As my country has shifted to a stage of high-quality development, strong support from emerging industries and technologies is urgently needed.

As an important carrier of emerging technologies and key equipment of modern industries, robots lead the digital development and intelligent upgrading of industries, and continuously breed new industries, new models and new formats, which will effectively promote sustainable economic and social development.

Compared with the world’s advanced level, my country’s robot industry still has a certain gap, such as insufficient technology accumulation, lack of original research, theoretical research, and forward design capabilities; weak industrial foundation, and the quality stability and reliability of key components cannot be Meet the needs of high-performance complete machines; lack of supply of high-speed, high-precision, heavy-duty and other high-performance complete machines, etc.” At a press conference on December 28, Wang Weiming, director of the First Division of Equipment Industry of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, stated that the current robot in my country Insufficient industry.

In this context, 15 departments including the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology officially issued the “14th Five-Year Plan for Robot Industry Development”. The “Planning” shows that in the face of the new situation and new requirements, the next five years or even a longer period of time will be a period of strategic opportunity for my country’s robot industry to become self-reliant and self-reliant. We must seize the opportunity to speed up the solution of problems such as insufficient technology accumulation, weak industrial foundation, and lack of high-end supply, and promote the robotics industry to move towards the mid-to-high end.
