On May 16th, the fourth China robot summit opened in Ningbo, Yuyao. Reporters learned from the meeting, the relevant departments are organizing research, China's robotics industry, the future will introduce a series of support and guidance policy, the current 2 billion yuan smart robot key special guide fund has been in place. By 2020, our country will form a perfect robot industry
system, and the industry will move to the middle and high level. In this regard, industry experts said that the next three to five years, the robot market opportunities will focus on the field of computing and perception, home care and other service-oriented robot is also the next expansion of space.
Current situation, industry scale expands steadily
With the "China made 2025 strategy" gradually advancing, industrial robots, "manufacturing crown top pearl" has become the most fiery manufacturing investment areas, but also an important direction of enterprise transformation and upgrading. The development of robot technology and industry in China is gradually maturing. Data show that in 2016, China's industrial robot production has reached 72 thousand and 400 units, an increase of 34.3%. In 2017, the domestic industrial robot market will be more rational and professional, and the scale of the industry will steadily expand.
The Organizing Committee of the World Congress of robot deputy director and Secretary General Xu Xiaolan said in his speech at the summit, Chinese robot market power, is currently the leading innovation driven, and constantly improve the intelligent level of the robot.
In fact, the Chinese robot industry has occupied an important position in the world. Related data show that in 2015, the global industrial robot sales of 248 thousand units, an increase of 12%. China's annual sales of industrial robots totaled 66 thousand and 700 units, accounting for more than 1/4 of the global industrial robot market. It is understood that this is our country since 2013 for third consecutive years to become the world's largest industrial robot consumer market.
On the occasion of the new and old kinetic energy conversion, Ningbo has made the robot industry as an entry point for the development of the intelligent economy in the face of the reduction of the population bonus, the increase of labor costs and the acceleration of industrial competition. In 2016, the city's above scale intelligent manufacturing equipment industry output value of 58 billion yuan, the electronic information industry output value of 168 billion 800 million yuan, software and information services business revenue 45 billion 100 million yuan, a total of more than and 350 enterprises in the development of internet. Total implementation of intelligent transformation of enterprises more than 1200. As a result, Ningbo became the country's first 2025 pilot demonstration cities in china.
According to the national manufacturing Power Construction Strategy Advisory Committee forecast that by 2020, China's industrial robot sales will exceed 150 thousand units, the amount of 800 thousand units. Then, a new generation of robot information technology will make a breakthrough, is expected to produce 2 to 3 with an annual output of more than 000, the industrial scale of more than ten billion yuan, with the international competitiveness of industry leading enterprises, and create 5 to 8 robots supporting industry clusters.
In this regard, the Ministry of science and technology center researcher Liu Jinchang introduction, the robot roughly divided into three categories: industrial robots, special robots and service robots. At present, these three kinds of robots in our country have their own characteristics, many bright spots. In the case of industrial robots, China is the largest industrial robot application, the world's relatively large manufacturers of robots have set up branches in China, and even many manufacturing plant headquarters have moved to china. In addition to the large market, the share of domestic robots are constantly improving. As a big manufacturing country, we regard industrial robots as the core products of economic transformation and industrial upgrading, which shows that China's independent manufacturing capability is also improving. "In the economic downturn as a whole, from high-speed growth to medium speed growth shift, China's robotics industry outshine others, leading the development of manufacturing."." Liu Jinchang expresses.
Highlight artificial intelligence into tipping point
"Intelligent manufacturing is our only way out."." Qu Daokui, President of SIASUN robotics, said the current Chinese robot has at least one trillion yuan of market space. The reporter learned from the official 16 day robot summit, signed a total of 26 projects, a total investment of 36 billion 874 million yuan, is divided into three categories, including the Chinese Academy of Sciences: collaborative innovation body strategic cooperation and other comprehensive project 7, and built the Beidou navigation Chuangzhi intelligent manufacturing projects 8, FOTILE digital factory intelligent manufacturing application integration the transformation project 11.
Many industry sources told reporters that the current major industrial robots market price of 150 thousand to 500 thousand yuan per unit, and some high-end industrial robots will reach the market price of one million yuan level. If for each 200 thousand yuan, is expected to 2020, China's industrial robot total sales will reach 45 billion yuan, plus other service robot, the robot industry sales are expected to exceed 50 billion yuan.
In the industry experts view, not all artificial intelligence and robotics industry is the "tipping point" at this stage". Over the next 35 years, robots will erupt in computing and perception." Qu Daokui prediction. "Runaway", the world's artificial intelligence expert Kevin Kelly also believes that the overall trend of view, the next 20 years and data applications related to artificial intelligence will be more successful. For example, the financial sector and retail areas. In the eyes of a number of experts, in addition to industrial robots, home care and other service-oriented robots will be the next expansion of space.
In addition, China's robot industry has emerged "high-end industry low-end" trend is an indisputable fact, there are industry calls for the next stage to fundamentally enhance competitiveness. "Due to the poor independent of the core technology, the majority of manufacturers only have robot production in China's low-end 3 axis robot to 5 axis, and imported from abroad are high-end products, 6 axis robot; the future of domestic enterprises around the core parts, innovative products, market segmentation, customer service service, capital acquisitions and other five dimensions breakthrough. Only by realizing independent innovation and mastering the core skills, can we fundamentally enhance the core competitiveness, and then make a firm foothold in the market." Shenzhen, a long-term research robot industry insiders told the Economic Information Daily reporter bluntly.
Bonus series to support and guide the policy will be out
Brisk market demand has also brought about signs of overheating in the industry. According to statistics, the focus of the development of the domestic robot industry has more than 20 provinces, the robot industry park more than 40. The past two years, the number of robot enterprises from less than 400, rapidly increasing to more than 800, while more than 3400 enterprises related to the industry chain. Among them, there are only 280 robots enterprises in Zhejiang province. CCID Institute equipment director Zuo Shiquan said earlier: "China's robot industry there is a certain degree of overheating, low-level redundant construction, blind launch of the phenomenon does exist in some areas."."
In this regard, Liu Jinchang said, "at present, there is indeed some heat, there should be a choice of development.". Robots are not available to anyone, which requires long-term accumulation. At present, many robot factories in the market have switched from other fields, which requires scientific guidance."
However, Liu Jinchang also bluntly, "done a lot of products, can not sell, it is called overcapacity. In the service robot, I haven't heard that it can't be sold at all." In his view, the robotics industry has yet to see signs of a significant excess capacity. According to Liu Jinchang revealed that the relevant departments are doing research on the matter, and the NDRC is also doing the service robot promotion plan. After the investigation, the parties will presumably introduce some policies to promote the development of the robot industry.
It is reported that the Ministry of science and technology recently focused on intelligent robots, but also approved a 2 billion yuan guide fund to support, including from basic research, to key technologies and demonstration applications and other aspects of the development.
In fact, in order to promote the sound development of China's robot industry, the Ministry of industry and other ministries have successively introduced a series of follow-up measures to promote the development of the industry. In April 6th, the Ministry of industry, the development and Reform Commission, the Ministry of Finance jointly issued the "robot industry development plan (2016-2020 years)", planning requirements, within five years to form our own more perfect robot industry system. According to the deployment of the Ministry of industry, the next stage of promoting policy will address two key issues: one is to promote the robot industry towards high-end development; two is to regulate market order, to prevent the disorderly development of the robot industry.
In addition, in order to promote the healthy development of the robot industry, the next stage in China will be launched four major demonstration projects, including the key parts of the robot development and application demonstration projects, industrial robot core technology research and application demonstration project, service robot technology research and demonstration project and talent training robot Fan Gongcheng.
