Ministry of Industry and Information Technology: Last year, the revenue of the robot industry exceeded 130 billion

On September 6, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology held the fifth press conference of the “New Era Industry and Informatization Development” series with the theme of “Vigorously Develop High-end Equipment Manufacturing Industry”. achievement.

Guo Shougang, deputy director of the First Division of Equipment Industry of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, said at the press conference that since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, my country’s Robot industry has developed vigorously, greatly changing people’s production and lifestyle, and injecting strong momentum into economic and social development.

One is the rapid growth of industrial scale. In 2021, the operating income of the entire Robot industry will exceed 130 billion yuan, and the output of industrial robots will reach 366,000 units, a 10-fold increase over 2015, making it the world’s largest industrial Robot market.

Second, the technical level has been greatly improved. Significant progress has been made in the research and development of core components such as precision reducers, intelligent controllers, and real-time operating systems, and important breakthroughs have been made in high-complexity products such as space robots, deep-sea robots, and surgical robots. grow and develop.

The third is to accelerate the expansion of application depth and breadth. The application of industrial robots covers 60 major categories of industries and 168 middle categories of industries in the national economy. According to the statistics of relevant institutions, the density of robots in my country’s manufacturing industry will reach more than 300 units per 10,000 people in 2021, an increase of about 13 times compared with 2012. Service robots and special robots have played a great role in education, medical care, logistics and other fields, and constantly breed new industries and new models. new business.

When talking about the next step, Guo Shougang said that the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology will fully implement the “14th Five-Year Plan for the Development of Robot Industry” to accelerate the high-quality development of the Robot industry.

The first is to consolidate the industrial foundation. Carry out actions to improve the key basics of robots, improve standards, testing, and certification systems, support joint research by industry, academia, and research, and accelerate the completion of industrial shortcomings such as special materials, core components, and processing technology, and create more high-end intelligent products.

The second is to actively expand industry applications. Implement the “robot +” application action, organize the precise connection between production and demand, speed up the popularization and promotion of mature scenarios, increase product innovation in emerging fields, strengthen featured applications in subdivided fields, and help digital and intelligent transformation and upgrading of various industries.

The third is to cultivate and expand high-quality enterprises. Support enterprises to deeply cultivate sub-sectors and accelerate their growth into specialized, refined and new “little giant” enterprises. Encourage key enterprises in the industry to play a leading role and build an ecosystem for large and medium-sized enterprises to integrate and develop in the fields of complete machines, parts and systems, and system integration.

Fourth, create a favorable development environment. Accelerate the cultivation of professional and technical talents and compound high-end talents, increase the protection of intellectual property rights, cultivate a number of advantageous and characteristic clusters with strong innovation ability and good industrial environment, and continue to create a market-oriented, legalized, and international business environment.

The robot segment has broad prospects

The scale of my country’s robot market continues to grow rapidly, and the robot + application expansion trend has formed. It will continue to expand a wider range of application scenarios in manufacturing, logistics, finance, commerce, home furnishing, agriculture and other industries. In the future, domestic robots will continue to integrate with thousands of industries. The breadth and depth of application will expand rapidly, and the industrial scale will continue to grow rapidly.

According to the “2022 China Robot Industry Development Report”, China’s robot market will reach 17.4 billion US dollars (118.7 billion yuan) in 2022, with an average annual growth rate of 22% in five years. Among them, the market size of industrial robots is expected to reach US$8.7 billion in 2022, US$6.5 billion for service robots, and US$2.2 billion for special robots.

Specifically, the overall demand for industrial robots is strong. The decline in the growth rate of the industry in the first half of the year was mainly due to the impact of the epidemic on production and delivery in April and May. The demand for industrial robots continues to rise in industries such as automotive, photovoltaics, semiconductors, and general industry.

At the same time, domestic manufacturers have made certain breakthroughs in the fields of key core components such as reducers, controllers, and servo systems. The trend of localization of core components has begun to appear. Under the pressure of the supply chain and the tide of price increases, domestic robots are more cost-effective. The company’s continuous innovation and breakthrough development is worth looking forward to.

There is huge market potential and development space for service robots. With the accelerated aging of the population and the strong demand from the continuous development of the tertiary industry, China’s service robot market will grow rapidly, with education, public services and other fields becoming the main driving force. By 2024, with the further expansion of emerging scenarios, the market size is expected to exceed $10 billion.

Special robots usher in a period of opportunity for new demand outbreaks. In response to earthquakes, floods, extreme weather, and public safety events such as mining accidents, fires, and security, there is a prominent demand for special robots. Since 2017, China’s special robot market year The average growth rate reached 30.7%. It is estimated that by 2024, the market size of China’s special robots is expected to reach 3.4 billion US dollars.

Some professionals said that robot + application has a broad market space. Industrial robots with high precision and stability as the core elements, service robots to replace tedious and repetitive work, and special robots to apply special scenarios are all in terms of application expansion. There are broad prospects, and there are high-speed growth opportunities in related segments.
