What is Status Quo of Industrial Robot?

Production and market size

With the rapid development of my country’s traditional industries, especially the manufacturing industry, the domestic demand for production labor has gradually increased. However, with the further intensification of the aging population, the demographic dividend gradually recedes. While the labor costs are rising year by year. The demand for labor substitute products such as industrial robots in traditional industries. Especially the manufacturing industry, will always maintain a growing trend.

In addition, due to the impact of the epidemic, other countries have stopped production and production. While at the same time, China has properly controlled the epidemic. So it has undertaken a large number of manufacturing needs from all over the world. That has prompted the domestic manufacturing industry to form a small peak. Then it indirectly drives the growth of the industrial robot industry. According to statistics, in the first half of 2021, the output of industrial robots in China was 173,630 sets, an increase of 69.8% over the first half of 2020.

From the perspective of the application structure of industrial robots, handling is still the largest application field of robots, accounting for 38% of the overall robot application. Among it is the famous KUKA robot handling robot arm palletizing manipulator. It is followed by welding robots, accounting for 29%, and assembly robots, accounting for 10%.

From the perspective of various subdivisions of industrial robots, the sales of multi-joint robots in the Chinese market still occupy the first position. Data show that in 2019, the sales volume of multi-joint robots in China y was 96,000 units, accounting for 66.67% of the total sales.

Import and export situation

In terms of import and export volume, the import and export volume of industrial robots in China has fluctuated greatly in recent years. In 2019, the export volume was greater than the import volume for the first time. According to the data, from January to September 2021, the import volume of industrial robots in my country was 87,846 units, and the export volume was 43,160 units.
