Read the picture | The density of robots in China’s manufacturing industry will double in 2025, and it is expected to rank among the top three in the world

As the world’s largest for 8 consecutive yearsIndustrial RobotConsumer Country, 2020, my countryRobotThe industrial revenue exceeded 100 billion yuan, and the density of manufacturing robots in mainland China reached 246 units/10,000 people, nearly twice the global average of 126 units/10,000 people.

The density of manufacturing robots is considered to be one of the important criteria to measure the degree of automation development in a country’s manufacturing industry.

Recently, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the National Development and Reform Commission, the Ministry of Science and Technology and other 15 departments jointly issued the “14th Five-Year Plan” Robot Industry Development Plan (hereinafter referred to as the “Plan”). The “Planning” proposes that by 2025, the average annual growth rate of the Robot industry’s revenue will exceed 20%, and the density of manufacturing robots will increase by 100%, that is, more than 450 units per 10,000 people.

In recent years, the number of robot installations in China has increased significantly, and the density has risen from 49 units in 2015 to 246 units in 2020, and the ranking has risen from 25th to 9th. It is the most dynamic country in the development of robot density in the world.

In terms of regions, Asia has the highest robot density in the manufacturing industry, with an average robot density of 134 units, Europe is 123 units, and the Americas is 111 units. South Korea, Singapore, and Japan occupy the top 3 seats in the global density list, of which South Korea has been No. 1 since 2010, with a robot density seven times higher than the global average.

Milton Guerry, president of the International Federation of Robotics, said robot density is a barometer for tracking the level of automation adoption in manufacturing around the world. From the data point of view, the development of manufacturing in China and even in Asia is poised to take off.

According to the company’s data, as of December 18, 2021, there were 377,993 companies operating in the robot business nationwide, of which 85,874 had a registered capital of more than 10 million.applicationCovering 52 major industry categories such as automobile, electronics, light industry, petrochemical, and pharmaceuticals, and 143 middle-level industries.

Compared with the leading countries, my country’s robot market still has a lot of room for improvement. At present, the localization rate of complete robots in my country is about 30%, of which Nanjing Estun, which has the highest domestic market share, has only about 3%, and the localization rate of core components such as controls and reducers is even lower.

Wang Weiming, director of the First Division of Equipment Industry of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, said that in response to problems such as insufficient accumulation of robot technology in the domestic manufacturing industry, weak industrial foundation, and lack of high-end supply, the “Planning” is problem-oriented, focusing on precise support for weak links, and emphasizing the improvement of robots. Industrial innovation ability, and promote the high-quality development of the industry.
