In recent years, with the accelerated release of the demand for automated production, the global demographic dividend is declining, and the transformation and upgrading of the manufacturing industry is imminent. In order to promote the transformation of a "manufacturing power" to a "manufacturing power", my country has specially formulated the "Made in China 2025" strategic plan to promote the automation and informatization upgrade of the development of intelligent manufacturing through the continuous strengthening of the driving force of innovation. Among them, industrial robots, as the core equipment and hardware foundation of automation development, have received long-term attention and attention from the country.
The development of industrial robots in China is accelerating
Since 2010, under the dual benefits of policies and markets, my country's industrial robot market has ushered in rapid development. Not only has the market scale continued to grow, but market sales have expanded synchronously, and the market growth rate and development trend are very strong. According to IFR statistics, the sales volume of industrial robots in my country reached 138,000 units in 2017, a year-on-year increase of more than 30%.
At present, my country has become the largest demand and application market for industrial robots in the world for 6 consecutive years, and the number of products has far exceeded that of developed countries such as the United States, the United Kingdom, Japan, and Germany. According to the overall development of the existing market, industry insiders predict that more than 34% of industrial robots will enter the Chinese market in 2018, and the domestic market sales and scale will reach 150,000 units and $6.23 billion respectively.
In order to promote the rapid development of the industrial robot industry, the Chinese government has given considerable policy support in recent years. Marked by the "Guiding Opinions on Promoting the Development of the Industrial Robot Industry" issued in 2013, the policy dividend released by the government has encouraged and guided a number of The rapid rise of enterprises has made the industrial robot market grow rapidly and mature. At the same time, the increase in R&D investment of domestic enterprises and the strengthening of the capital layout of foreign enterprises have also boosted the development of my country's industrial robot market.
All in all, with the joint efforts of the government and enterprises, the application fields of industrial robots in my country have become more and more extensive, from the more mature automobile and electronics industries to medical, food, construction and other industries. In the future, with the further improvement of the market development, the extension trend of industrial robots is expected to continue to accelerate, and the market scale will be effectively increased through the continuous expansion of field applications.
Robot core components become key points
However, although the market situation of my country's industrial robots is good, the development is constantly accelerating, and the enterprises are also growing rapidly, but unfortunately, the current development of my country's industrial robots is still facing the embarrassing situation of being "ruled" by foreign advanced enterprises.
One of the key points of this situation is the core components mainly based on servo motors. In fact, there is still a big gap between my country and foreign giants in the core technology and key components of industrial robots.
At present, the domestic high-end market is mainly occupied by companies from Japan and European and American countries. Among them, Japanese brands occupy more than 50% of the market share. Brands such as Panasonic, Mitsubishi Electric, Yaskawa, Sanyo, and Fuji monopolize the small and medium-sized OEM market in my country. In the large servo market, European brands such as Siemens and Bosch Rex It also has traditional advantages.
At the same time, in the low-end market where Chinese companies live, they are also being invaded by Taiwanese brands. They have a strong impact on Chinese companies by virtue of their performance close to Japanese brands and the low prices of domestic brands. Therefore, if my country wants to get rid of the low-end high-end industry, break the monopoly of foreign technology, and realize the real rise of the domestic industrial robot industry, it must take the lead in achieving breakthroughs in the core component link of servo motors.
Domestic servo motors take advantage of the situation to meet breakthroughs
For a long time, the reasons for the backward development of servo motors in my country and the lack of brand strength can generally be attributed to the late start and insufficient technical reserves; weak innovation ability and few patent applications; vicious competition at low prices, sacrificing product profits; and high additional Value products are less invested, and new technologies and products cannot be updated.
However, in recent years, with the gradual acceleration of the development of industrial robots and the increasing prospect of the servo motor market, the above problems have begun to turn around. Led by changes in research and development patents, industry strategies and government policies, the development of my country's servo motor market is taking advantage of the trend to usher in a breakthrough.
Among them, in terms of research and development patents, the number of domestic servo motor patents has risen sharply in recent years. In 2010, the number of servo motor-related patent applications in my country was only 2,697, and by 2016, it had increased to 14,058, with a compound annual growth rate of 31.68%.
In terms of industry strategy, high-level profitability has gradually replaced low-price competition. Domestic motor industry giants, such as INVT, Inovance Technology, and Wolong Electric, have maintained a 20%-40% share of servo motor products in recent years. high profits. In addition, in terms of government policies, the introduction of policies such as "Made in China 2025", energy conservation and emission reduction has also brought the industrial robot industry to a new height of attention to servo motor products.
All in all, taking advantage of the strong east wind brought by the acceleration of the development of the industrial robot market, domestic servo motors are ushering in breakthroughs in terms of patents, marketing, and policies. The rise of China has driven domestic enterprises to catch up and catch up strongly.
