AsiaIndustrial NetNews: A few days ago, an authoritative organization released a report saying that it is expected to serve in China in 2019.robotThe market size is expected to be close to 15.2 billion yuan. The market demand is increasing day by day, and the development space is huge. All sectors of society have paid attention to the field of service Robots. Domestic enterprises are also expanding the market one after another. Service robots have become a new growth point for market development.
Recently, Analysys International released a report showing that the size of China’s service robot market reached 7.29 billion yuan in 2016, a year-on-year increase of 44.6%. In 2016, there were as many as 70 domestic financing events in this field, and the total financing amount exceeded 1 billion US dollars (about 7 billion yuan). In addition, according to the forecast of IFR (World Federation of Robotics), the global service robot market will reach about 30 billion US dollars in 2015-2018. Among them, the domestic robot market is about 12 billion US dollars, and the professional-grade service robot market is about 19.6 billion US dollars. With the increasing market demand and huge market value, service robots have become a new market investment hotspot.
The rapid development of deep learning, speech recognition and other technologies has contributed to the rise of the service Robot Industry and application. Robots have evolved from one-way communication and execution of commands to the ability to understand semantics and respond to dialogue content. At present, service robots have been used in many industries including housekeeping, medical care, logistics, etc., and are changing the original industrial model. At the same time, policies such as the “Robot Industry Development Plan (2016-2020)” issued by the state have also given strong policy support to my country’s service robot industry.
▎Many domestic enterprises have laid out to seize the opportunity
Faced with the current situation of the social environment where labor is increasingly scarce, service robots are welcomed by companies and even families. Therefore, many related companies take this “Dongfeng” to make service robots a strategic focus.
Qian Dongqi, chairman of Ecovacs Robotics, said in a recent speech that in the past two years, nearly 1,000 Ecovacs humanoid service robots have landed in the banking industry, and will expand in vertical fields such as government affairs and tourism in the future. At present, Cannyyoulan has launched 3 series of 12 different types of commercial service robots, smart home robots, children’s educational companion robots, and desktop doll robots, serving the needs of families and various industries.What deserves special attention is that just last week, Midea Yaskawa Service robot manufacturing Base held a launching ceremony at the innovation center of Shunde Midea.industryAnother major measure after the system integration workshop of the robot joint venture company is put into use, it will achieve a production capacity scale of 200 million yuan.
On the other hand, escort-type service robots have also become the focus of research and development of domestic enterprises in recent years. The intensification of aging and the decline in the growth rate of the accompanying young and middle-aged population are opening up market space for accompanying service robots, especially elderly care services and home services. According to this general trend, Shandong University has successfully developed a companion robot “Dazhi”. “Dazhi” has vision, hearing and smell, and can switch freely between roles such as family guard, nanny, partner, etc. It is the world’s first service robot that combines cloud computing, positioning and navigation, face recognition, human-computer interaction and other technologies into one. .
In addition, at the 2017 Service Robot Industry Ecological Conference held on March 25, Liu Xuenan, the founder of CANNYULAN, proposed the “DNA double helix ecological growth model”. It is emphasized that the technology research and development platform and the industrial application platform should be developed in a coordinated manner and promote each other. Each platform will generate a growth point that promotes industrial development.
