The competitiveness of the robot industry in various countries
In 2020, the global robot industry market size will reach 24.3 billion US dollars (about 170.7 billion yuan).
According to the data of the Korea Federation of Industries, South Korea ranks first in the world in terms of robot density, with 932 robots per 10,000 workers, far exceeding the global average of 126, and also higher than Japan (390), Germany ( 371 units), the United States (255 units), and China (246 units).
Of course, the density of robots is directly related to the country’s industrial structure and population. In terms of comprehensive competitiveness, Japan ranks first, Germany ranks second, the United States ranks third, and South Korea lags behind China. According to the research data of the Korea Institute of Industrial Economics and Trade, the comprehensive competitiveness of the Korean robot industry ranks sixth among the six major countries of Japan, the United States, Germany, Switzerland and China, and is at the lowest level.
Japan has the world’s major Industrial Robot suppliers such as Kawasaki, Fanuc and YASKAWA, and has a very strong dominance in the robot industry. In the United States, based on its vast territory, the advantages of logistics robots are prominent. Many warehouses are equipped with automated assembly lines, and the system is relatively complete. Germany has a long history of advantages in manufacturing. It has advantages over other parts of Europe in the production and application of robots. It has well-known brands such as KUKA. Of course, the brand has been acquired by China Midea since 2016. .
In China, with the advancement of “Made in China 2025” and Industry 4.0, my country’s intelligent manufacturing level and robots have developed very rapidly.
speak with data
In addition to robot density and representative brands, factors such as market and industrial structure are also important factors to consider the development level of robots. In 2022, the global robotics market will reach $51.3 billion, with an average annual growth rate of 14% from 2017 to 2022. Among them, the industrial robot market will reach 19.5 billion US dollars, service robots will reach 21.7 billion US dollars, and special robots will exceed 10 billion US dollars. It is estimated that by 2024, the global robot market size is expected to exceed 65 billion US dollars.
Last year, Industrial Robots in the Asia-Pacific region performed outstandingly, accounting for about 39% of the global market share. Thanks to the increasing use of robots in industrial sectors, China, Japan, the United States, South Korea, and Germany have the largest industrial robot market sales in the world. The Asia-Pacific region accounted for three of the top five. Among them, the Chinese market has the highest sales volume, accounting for 43% of the global market, with strong growth momentum.
Recently, the “China Robot Industry Development Report (2022)” released by the Chinese Institute of Electronics shows that the growth rate of my country’s robot market is dazzling. The growth rate is as high as 22%.
The Chinese Power of Robots
Today, the robotics industry is constantly stepping into new fields and opening up new scenarios. In addition to further deepening in traditional automobile manufacturing, electronic manufacturing and other fields, new paths have also been opened up in medical, life and other fields, which has ushered in new growth in the scale of this industry. Under the influence of the epidemic, unmanned delivery robots have also gained a wave of development opportunities and have become the “popular spicy chicken” under the market demand.
The global service robot market is expected to reach $21.7 billion this year, and is expected to grow to $29 billion by 2024. Riding on the east wind of development, the global robotics industry is booming. Under the catalyst of policies and markets, China’s robot market will gradually overcome the problems of key core components such as reducers, controllers, and servo systems, showing strong competitiveness.
