The robot industry really developed in China was started
by the end of 1990's, roughly twenty to thirty years,
but Chinese robots development speed has made the world
In 2011, China's industrial robot market growth was sharply
up to 51%, all kinds of data showing that the Chinese
robot blowout era is about to come. The rapid development
of China's robot plays an important role in the development
of new industries and the transformation of traditional
industries, which is the core of intelligent manufacturing.
From the point of view of the overall situation, compared
to China's robot industry with the major industrial countries,
there is still a big gap, especially at present, competition
in the field of robotics, industry standards system of
China to be probably made, the core technology and key
parts and components need to break through.
With the structural shortage of labor and labor costs
rise sharply, China Labor bonus era is coming to an end,
at the mean time becoming the world's largest robot market
in 2014, and it is expected to be the world's No. 1 in
holdings of industrial robots in 2017.
"The robot industry’s thirteen five development
plan"(Plan) will focus on promoting the industrial
robot in tire and ceramic etc raw materials industry,
explosive dangerous operations such as casting, forging
of metal industry as well as the field of national defense
,as for service robot industry which to be at higher cost-effective.
At present, precision reducer, controller, servo system
and high performance drives etc for robot manufacturing
as well as core components heavily depend on imports,
and these parts and components accounted for more than
70% of the total production cost so that collaborating
with relevant overseas manufacturers to reduce the costs
are urgently needed.
In order to guide the Chinese robot industry to be bigger
and stronger, the plan proposed in the next five years,
to strengthening the basic theory and advanced technology
research, improve the quality of home independent brands
of robot and key parts and components, establishing and
improving the robot test and standard systems.
