Find the right step within the biggest robotics market worldwide
China has become the largest application market for industrial robots in the world since 2013. Numbers speak for themselves: - A global impact : in 2015, 248K units were sold worldwide (+12% vs. 2014). - A dynamic domestic market: 67K units in China alone(more than 25% of the total worldwide supply and a growth rateof +17% vs. 2014).
Dynamism is clearly sustained by the Chinese Government - A national vision: shifting from a labor-intensive manufacturing hub to a manufacturing power with high-tech and innovations. Over 40 robotics parks are being established.. - A strategic plan to be rolled out: in the “China 2025 plan”, Smart Manufacturing and Robotics are key priorities for the country. The production of industrial robots is forecasted to reach 100K units by 2020 (vs. 33K units in 2015.)
A market open to international cooperation According to Mr Wang Tianmiao, a member of the experts committee of CRIA:
As China is lacking of critical components (high precision reducers, servo & controllers, sensors, …), the robot standards and the testing and certification system need to improve. Hence, China is looking for research cooperation and into supporting start-ups. Robotics is pluridisciplinary. SMEs might be really good at AI, components, HRI and big groups could benefit from their innovations.
