In 2022, China’s logistics robot industry chain will usher in rapid development

At present, my country’s logistics industry is striving to transform from labor-based to technology-based, from traditional models to modernization and intelligent upgrades, followed by the use and popularization of various advanced technical equipment. Today, the application of intelligent Robots with functions such as handling, palletizing, and sorting has become an indispensable technology in the logistics industry.

Logistics robots are mainly used in warehouses, sorting centers, and in transit and other scenarios, and mainly complete related tasks such as loading and unloading, handling, storage, sorting, and transportation. With the continuous expansion of the application scope of logistics robots, the market scale of the logistics robot industry is also expanding. More and more enterprises are deployed, and market opportunities and challenges coexist.

1. Introduction to the logistics Robot Industry chain

The middle and upper reaches of the logistics robot industry chain include controllers, servosmotorservo drives, calculators, sensors, end effectors, etc.; different types of logistics robots in the midstream, including AGV handling robots, sorting robots, palletizing robots, picking robots, AMR robots, etc.; downstream applications in e-commerce, express logistics, Automobile manufacturing, electronic products, food and beverage, pharmaceutical manufacturing, metal processing and other fields.

1. Unmanned truck

Referred to as AGV trolley, it is a high-performance intelligent transportation equipment, mainly used in the handling and movement of goods, and has been widely used in various industries; AGV trolley has a high degree of automation and is easy to operate; when a certain part of the workshop needs a certain auxiliary material At the same time, the staff input relevant information to the computer terminal, the computer terminal then sends the information to the central control room, and professional technicians issue instructions to the computer. With the cooperation of the electronic control equipment, this instruction is finally accepted and executed by the AGV ——Send the accessories to the corresponding place.

2. Palletizing robot

It can replace the manual classification, handling and loading and unloading of goods, especially the handling of dangerous goods, such as radioactive substances and toxic substances, to ensure the safety of employees. Realize automation, intelligence and unmanned operation. In addition to replacing people to carry dangerous goods, palletizing robots are far more efficient than manual work. Therefore, the use of palletizing robots to realize automated production is an effective means to promote the development of enterprises.

3. Sorting robot

It is a robot equipped with sensors, objective lenses and electronic optical systems, which can quickly sort goods. It uses sensors, objective lenses, image recognition systems and multi-functional Robotic arms to identify the shape of the items according to the image recognition system. The manipulator grabs the items and places them in the designated position. Picking items is a more complex link in the entire logistics process, which is often time-consuming and labor-intensive. The automatic sorting robot can achieve 24-hour continuous sorting; it has a small footprint and high sorting efficiency, which can reduce labor costs by 70%; it is accurate and efficient, improving work efficiency and reducing transportation costs.

Second, the upstream analysis of the logistics robot industry chain

1. Servo motor

In recent years, the scale of China’s servo motor market has maintained a growing trend. Affected by the expansion of downstream Industrial robots, electronic manufacturing equipment and other industries, the application scale of servo motors in emerging industries has also continued to grow. In 2020, the size of my country’s servo motor market is 14.9 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 4.93%. It is expected that the market size will increase to 18.1 billion yuan in 2022.

2. Controller

With the continuous development of my country’s internet and communication technology, the interoperability of various products and industries will continue to strengthen, and the demand for intelligence such as big data applications will increase significantly. The market size of China’s intelligent controllers continues to grow. In 2020, the market size will reach 2,374.6 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 10.2%. It is expected that the market size will reach 3,181.3 billion yuan in 2022.

3. Sensors

In recent years, the pace of innovation in China’s sensor industry has accelerated significantly. With the continuous progress of society, the sensor industry has been paid more and more attention under the empowerment of the Internet, and the introduction of relevant support policies will be added in the future, and the sensor industry market can be expected. In 2020, the scale of China’s sensor market is 251 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 14.7%. It is estimated that the scale of my country’s sensor market will reach 295.18 billion yuan in 2021, and the scale of China’s sensor market will further increase to 315 billion yuan in 2022.

3. Market Scale of Logistics Robots

With the development of technology and the increase in demand, the research and development and application of logistics robots have gradually been paid attention to around the world. China’s logistics robot industry maintains a rapid growth rate. Although its overall market is slightly smaller than that of Industrial robots, the growth rate is faster. In 2021, the scale of China’s logistics robot market will reach 12.6 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 63.64%, and it is expected to further increase to 15 billion yuan in 2022.

1. AGV handling robot

With the advent of the era of Industry 4.0, artificial intelligence technology has gradually matured, and AGV has grown rapidly, and has been widely used in the automotive industry, home appliance manufacturing, e-commerce warehousing and logistics, tobacco and other fields. Thanks to the growing scale of my country’s robot market, the scale of China’s AGV market has grown from 2.85 billion yuan in 2017 to 8.77 billion yuan in 2021, with an average annual compound growth rate of 32.45%. With the development and maturity of AGV technology, there is still huge room for AGV development in the future. The market size is expected to reach 9.69 billion yuan in 2022.

2. Palletizing robot

As an important part of industrial robots, the market penetration rate of palletizing robots continues to increase. In recent years, the market size of my country’s palletizing robots has shown a continuous growth trend. In 2020, the market size of China’s palletizing robots is 17.63 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 21.5%. In the future, with the continuous development of domestic intelligent warehousing, logistics and other fields, the market demand for palletizing robots in China will continue to increase, and its market size is expected to expand rapidly.

4. Investment and financing of logistics robots
