During the “Thirteenth Five-Year Plan” period, my country’s Robot Industry has developed rapidly, and the market has maintained growth. In the future, the robotics industry will continue to develop as an important emerging industry segment. Let’s review the development of my country’s robot market and the prospects of the robot industry in the “14th Five-Year Plan”.
A review of the robotics industry
Up to now, China’s robot market has entered a period of rapid growth, among which industrial robots have become the world’s largest application market for many years; service robots have huge demand potential; and the application scenarios of special robots have expanded significantly. With the advent of the era of artificial intelligence, under the tide of “robot substitution”, the robot consumer market has expanded rapidly. According to data, the scale of China’s robot market in 2018 exceeded US$7 billion. With the continuous improvement of technology and the expansion of application scenarios, it is expected that the scale of China’s robot market will reach US$8.68 billion in 2019; by 2020, the scale of the robot market is expected to be close to US$10 billion.
From the perspective of industrial robots, my country is the largest country in the application of industrial robots, the industry is developing rapidly, and the output continues to grow. The output in 2015 was only 32,996 units. In 2017, it exceeded 130,000 units, and achieved the production target of 100,000 units three years ahead of schedule. In 2018, the national output of industrial robots was 147,682 units, a year-on-year increase of 4.6%. It is estimated that the output of industrial robots in 2019 will be nearly 200,000 units;

my country’s service robot industry started relatively late, and some products are still in the research and development stage. However, with the continuous improvement of technology and the improvement of residents’ consumption level, the price of multiple levels meets the needs of multiple consumer groups, and the application scope of service robots is getting wider and wider. ”, the consumer market continues to expand. Data show that in 2017, the sales of service robots in my country exceeded 20 billion yuan. The market scale continues to grow. In 2018, the sales of the service robot market was around 24.1 billion yuan. It is expected to exceed 27 billion yuan in 2019 and 30 billion yuan in 2020.

From the perspective of layout, my country has formed a number of robot industry clusters. According to my country’s administrative and geographical division, combined with the foundation and characteristics of the robot industry’s on-site development, the country is divided into six regions: Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei, Yangtze River Delta, Pearl River Delta, Northeast, Central and West. Among them, the main development clusters of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei robot industry are Beijing, Tangshan, Baoding and Tianjin; the Yangtze River Delta robot industry clusters are Nanjing, Wuxi, Shanghai, Kunshan and Changzhou, etc.; the Pearl River Delta region is Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Foshan and Dongguan. The main agglomeration areas; the robot industry in the northeast region is dominated by Harbin, Shenyang, and Fushun; the central region has Changsha, Wuhan, Luoyang, etc.; the western region has three major robot industry clusters: Chengdu, Chongqing and Xi’an. The distribution of the main agglomeration areas of my country’s robot industry is as follows:

2. Prospects of the “14th Five-Year Plan” Robot Industry
The scale of the industry continues to grow. During the “14th Five-Year Plan” period, the industrial scale of my country’s robot market will continue to grow. Among them, the annual output of industrial robots will double, and the market share of self-owned brand industrial robots will increase. The scale of the service robot market has expanded, and the integration with smart medical care, smart home, and smart security has been deepened. At the same time, speed up the establishment of support platforms for special robots such as space robots, marine robots, and base robots.
The competitiveness of robot enterprises is strengthened. Accelerate the cultivation of a number of leading enterprises such as industrial robots, service robots, and special robots, and strengthen the international competitiveness of enterprises and products. At the same time, actively build a robot supporting industry cluster, cultivate and support the development of the robot industry with the carrier of robot industrial park and robot town.
Major breakthroughs have been made in key components. Improve the performance, accuracy and reliability of precision reducers, servo motors and drives, and controllers for robots. Further conquer the core components and special sensors of intelligent robots, and improve the hardware interface standards, software interface protocol standards and safe use standards of intelligent robots. Establish a standard system and safety rules for intelligent robots.
Application scenarios will continue to expand. The main technical indicators such as speed, load, accuracy, and self-weight ratio of industrial robots have reached the level of similar foreign products, and the autonomous control technology of robots and mechanical arms in complex environments has been studied to deepen the application depth of industrial robots; The technical level of service robots in the fields of family service, anti-terrorism and anti-riot, disaster relief and scientific research is close to the international level.
Strengthen the research on the robot standard framework system. Speed up the formulation of comprehensive robot application solutions and form corresponding standards and specifications. Accelerate the development of relevant standards by industry associations and alliances in the field of intelligent robots and subdivided applications.
