“Robot +” era opens the development of industrial robots out of “acceleration”

Policies promulgated, top-level design optimized

The “Implementation Plan” puts forward specific development goals, that is, by 2025, the density of manufacturing Robots will double compared with 2020, the depth and breadth of application of service robots and special robots will be significantly improved, and the ability of robots to promote high-quality economic and social development will be significantly enhanced. Focus on ten key areas of application, break through more than 100 innovative application technologies and solutions for robots, promote more than 200 typical application scenarios of robots with high technical level, innovative application models and remarkable application results, and create a batch of “robot﹢” applications Benchmark enterprise.

At the same time, the “Implementation Plan” clarified the ten key areas of robot application, namely manufacturing, agriculture, construction, energy, trade and logistics in the field of economic development, medical health, elderly care services, education, commercial community services, and security in the field of social and people’s livelihood. Emergency and extreme environment applications.

The “Implementation Plan” also proposes five major measures to enhance the basic support capabilities of the “Robot﹢” application: the first is to build a robot production-use collaborative innovation system, the second is to build the “Robot﹢” application experience and test verification center, and the third is to accelerate the application of robots Standard development and promotion, the fourth is to carry out industry and regional “robot﹢” application innovation practice, and the fifth is to build a “robot﹢” application supply and demand docking platform.

The introduction of the “Implementation Plan” has pointed out the direction for the development of my country’s Robot Industry. Li Wenjuan, director of the Intelligent Equipment Research Office of the Industrial Policy Research Institute of the China Electronics and Information Industry Development Research Institute, believes that the “Implementation Plan” focuses on product innovation and scene promotion, guides independent brand robots to seize strategic opportunities, focuses on ten key application areas, and To drive and promote the high-quality development of my country’s robot industry.

The demand is strong, and the development of industrial robots is accelerating

Manufacturing is the first robot application field mentioned in the “Implementation Plan”. The “Implementation Plan” clearly pointed out that the development of new Robotic products such as welding, assembly, spraying, handling, grinding and polishing, and the application of robotic production equipment in related fields will be accelerated. Develop specialized and customized solutions and software and hardware products, accumulate experience and knowledge such as model libraries and process software packages, deeply integrate robot control software and integrated application systems, and promote the development of industrial and commercial industries in the fields of automobiles, electronics, machinery, light industry, textiles, building materials, Medicine and other industries that have formed large-scale applications, sanitary ware, ceramics, photovoltaics, smelting, casting, sheet metal, hardware, furniture and other subdivided fields, spraying glaze, trimming, polishing, grinding, welding, spraying, handling, palletizing and other key applications. Promote the construction of intelligent manufacturing demonstration factories and create typical application scenarios for industrial robots. Develop an intelligent manufacturing system based on industrial robots to help the digital transformation and intelligent transformation of the manufacturing industry.

In recent years, the development of industrial robots in my country has continued to accelerate. According to the latest data released by the China Robot Industry Alliance, in December 2022, the industrial robots of industrial enterprises above designated size across the country will complete an output of 40,000 sets. From January to December 2022, the cumulative output of industrial robots of industrial enterprises above designated size across the country will be 443,000 sets. In December 2022, the output of service robots in industrial enterprises above designated size across the country will be 491,000 sets. From January to December 2022, the cumulative output of service robots in industrial enterprises above designated size across the country will be 6.458 million sets.

While the domestic market is booming, my country’s industrial robots are also accelerating the pace of “going overseas”. According to data released by the China Robot Industry Alliance, in December 2022, the export value of my country’s Industrial Robot equipment was 50 million U.S. dollars, the import value was 180 million U.S. dollars, and the trade deficit was 130 million U.S. dollars. From January to December 2022, the cumulative export value of my country’s Industrial Robot equipment is 610 million US dollars, the cumulative import value is 2 billion US dollars, and the cumulative trade deficit is 1.39 billion US dollars.

With the accelerated digital development of the economy and society, especially the accelerated digital transformation of various industries, industrial robots have become the core equipment for the development of intelligent manufacturing by major enterprises, and the density of manufacturing robots has increased rapidly. Statistics show that my country has become the world’s largest robot application market for nine consecutive years, and the consumption of industrial robots will account for more than 50% of the global total in 2021.

Industrial robots are being applied in more and more scenarios, from 25 industry categories and 52 industry categories ten years ago, to more than 60 industry categories and 168 industry categories today. As we can see, industrial robots are not only used in high-end manufacturing industries such as aerospace, automobiles, ships, and semiconductors, but also in traditional industries such as furniture, food, building materials, and textiles, effectively solving high-risk operations and precision machining. Difficulty, difficulty in recruiting and employing workers, etc.

The release of the “Implementation Plan” opened a new era of “robots”. In this era, the technological innovation level of robots is rapidly improving, and the application scenarios are becoming more and more abundant, helping more companies to improve quality and efficiency, helping more industries to transform and upgrade, and helping people achieve a better life.
