Why did the output growth of industrial robots show negative growth for the first time

according to the National Bureau of statistics, the output of industrial robots in China in 2018 was 148000 sets, an increase of 4.6% over the previous year. Zuo Shiquan, director of the policy planning department of the equipment industry development center of the Ministry of industry and information technology, said that it is expected that by 2020, the domestic industrial robot market will be nearly $10billion; Together with system integration services, the market size is expected to exceed US $30billion. Industry experts also said that at present, the application field of industrial robots continues to expand and is entering a critical period of upgrading and acceleration

according to the National Bureau of statistics, the output of industrial robots in China in 2018 was 148000 sets, an increase of 4.6% over the previous year. Zuoshiquan, director of the policy planning division of the equipment industry development center of the Ministry of industry and information technology, said it was expected that by 2020, the domestic industrial robot market would be nearly $10billion; Together with system integration services, the market size is expected to exceed US $30billion. Industry experts also said that at present, the application field of industrial robots continues to expand and is entering a critical period of upgrading and acceleration

in contrast, the cumulative growth rate of industrial robot production in 2019 showed a negative growth for the first time, continuing the slow growth trend in the second half of 2018, with the production of 20041.3 sets, a year-on-year decrease of 11%

on the one hand, the rapidly growing domestic industrial robot market in recent years has attracted a large number of foreign robot head enterprises to invest in layout, build factories and increase production, and continue to expand with the advantage of occupying more than half of the domestic market. On the other hand, the core components of domestic industrial robots depend on imports for a long time, and the cost is relatively high. In the absence of technology and cost advantages, Some domestic enterprises have opened the market with "cost-effective" products, mainly focusing on medium and low-end products, resulting in a reduction in profit space and a sharp increase in the operating pressure of domestic robot enterprises

the central and local policies directly attack the weakness of the industrial robot industry

in order to break through the heavy siege of foreign robot enterprises, in addition to strengthening basic research and tackling key technologies and components, it is also necessary to closely combine application scenarios. In recent years, in addition to the introduction and implementation of "new things" industry related policies in a series of traditional robot industries, such as the robot industry development plan (year), the three-year action plan for promoting the development of a new generation of artificial intelligence industry (year), and the intelligent manufacturing development plan (year), the central government and the local government gave corresponding policy guidance according to the current shortcomings of robot development last year. For example, local policies should be combined with local advantageous industries, Guide user enterprises to actively apply according to market rules, rather than simply subsidizing

in response to the technical weakness, the central bank made it clear in the recently released report on the implementation of China's monetary policy for the fourth quarter of 2018 that it would encourage financial institutions to promote the innovative development of financing, leasing and pledge businesses and increase financial support for the field of industrial robots. With enterprises as the main body, we should promote the research and development of core technologies, the construction of industrial chains, the expansion of application fields and the development of regional agglomeration

many places have also formulated a clear path map for the application of short boards in the industry. Hebei Province has recently made it clear that by 2020, the density of industrial robots will reach 100 sets/10000 people, and will carry out application demonstrations in automotive, electronics, new energy and other industries; Xi'an, Shaanxi Province, has also proposed in the relevant planning to focus on the automobile, general equipment, power equipment and other industries to popularize the application of industrial robots. In addition, many localities have clearly formulated annual plans at this year's local two sessions. For example, Anhui Province proposed to promote the application of more than 5000 industrial robots; Zhejiang Province clearly added 16000 industrial robots

in the critical period of upgrading and accelerating, it should be guided by market demand

most foreign industrial robots are concentrated in capital intensive enterprises such as automobiles in China, but the concentration in labor-intensive industries such as 3C and household appliances is low, and the industrial scale has not yet been formed, and the 3C industry universal testing machine, such as putting the standard dynamometer on it for verification, maintains a continuous growth trend. Therefore, China's industrial robots still have opportunities in this field

secondly, with the deep integration with information technology, especially interconnection, artificial intelligence and other technologies, a new generation of robots that are more intelligent and can cooperate, collaborate and integrate with people has become the development trend of the industry, providing an implementation path for China's robot industry to move towards the middle and high end. For example, collaborative robots, which have emerged in recent years, are basically at the same level at home and abroad, and can be grafted with artificial intelligence technologies such as vision and voice, China has the largest market for robot applications, and there are enough application environments to detect and improve product performance, so as to transform market advantages into technical and industrial advantages

the government and the market should pay attention to the robot industry, which is conducive to the development of the industry, but it should also be rational and objective, rather than blind support. At present, there are many theories and paths for the upgrading and development of the robot industry, but not all of them can withstand scrutiny. We should pay more attention to the change from technology president to universal direct election itself, take market demand as the guide, and focus on the fields representing the development trend of the industry. Only in this way can we take the lead in the upgrading of the new generation of robot industry
