From 2013 to 2017, it is the "golden five years" for the development of domestic robotics industry. In 2016, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and the Ministry of Finance jointly issued the "Robot Industry Development Plan (2016-2020)". According to the overall goals proposed in the plan, 2020 will be the final year of the "13th Five-Year Plan" for domestic robotics industry. This year, where will domestic robots develop in the future?
The transformation direction of the robot industry
Although domestic robotics industry has developed rapidly before, production has grown rapidly, and the market scale has also increased rapidly, fundamentally, many robotics companies do not have core technological advantages and strong brand influence, and they are more concerned with prices and publicity. , There are not many real robot products, and leading companies are relatively scarce. Obviously, this is difficult to compete with well-known foreign brands, and from the perspective of industrial development, it is not a long-term solution.
Therefore, industry experts said that 2020 is very important for the domestic intelligent robot industry, and it may become a "transformation year" for China's robot industry. So, how should the domestic robot industry transform?
The first is the capital shift to promote social capital to increase investment in the robot manufacturing industry to avoid the tendency to bubble; the second is the quality upgrade, in the process of industry reshuffle, abandon the pursuit of "quantity" and focus on investment in "quality". Focus on improving the technological innovation strength and core technology reserves of the enterprise; thirdly, cultivating subdivisions, not blindly pursuing all-round development, but focusing on market demand, looking for opportunities and breakthroughs in subdivisions, and creating differentiated advantages for different enterprises.
A new outbreak is brewing
At present, the rapid development of new-generation information technologies such as artificial intelligence, Internet of Things, and 5G is accelerating its commercial popularization. The development of global connectivity, digitization, and intelligence is unstoppable. As the main landing scene of intelligent development and the key driving force for the promotion of intelligent manufacturing, once the robot industry completes an important transformation, it will surely usher in a new round of market outbreak.
On the one hand, data shows that the current global average density of robots is only 0.85%. By 2030, it is not impossible to further increase the robot penetration rate to 30%. There is still huge potential for robot density to increase; on the other hand, the global population is aging and the labor force Factors such as the sharp increase in costs and the accelerated transformation and upgrading of the manufacturing industry have become more prominent, and there is a lot of space for growth in the robot market.
Specifically, with the development of technology and the maturity of the industry, the segmentation of robots continues to increase and the scope of application continues to expand, and the extension from the industrial field to the service field is accelerating, medical, rescue, security, education, cooking, cleaning, etc., a series of new products have sprung up and penetrated into all walks of life. Among them, the application prospects of storage, cleaning, security, medical and other robots in China are particularly worth looking forward to.
Therefore, as long as the core technology of domestic robots is guaranteed and the user experience continues to improve, they will inevitably be more popular in the market. By then, domestic robotics industry will not only be more competitive internationally, but also better participate in global industrial chain cooperation. This is a win-win situation for the development of the world's intelligent robot industry.
