The growth slows down, and the industrial robot industry has experienced "late spring cold"

the traditional development has been restricted to a certain extent. The new generation is weak, and new companies are closing down. Is it the winter of robots? Or is it that robots are in the transition to spring, that is, China is about to usher in new development opportunities? At the 2019 world robot conference, Qu Daokui, founder and President of Xinsong Robot Automation Co., Ltd., raised this question

according to the International Federation of robotics, China has become the world's largest robot application market for six consecutive years in an environment of sluggish global economic development. The density of industrial robots continues to increase. In 2018, the density of industrial robots in China reached 137, an increase of 34.3% compared with 2017, far exceeding the global average level in the same period

however, since the second half of 2018, China's industrial robot output has increased year-on-year. Under the tuyere, what is holding back the pace of robot growth

the traditional advantage market shrank

the automotive industry has always been the main market for robot applications. The 3C industry grew sluggishly last year, which also affected the development of the robot market. Qu Daokui pointed out

why does this phenomenon occur? Qu Daokui said that automotive robots almost require high quality and high reliability. Although Chinese robots have been significantly developed and improved in recent years, there is still a certain gap compared with foreign countries; At the same time, the automobile industry was almost monopolized by foreign companies in the past. The development of robots in China, which has a history of more than ten years, is insufficient compared with foreign countries in terms of brand effect

Xin Guobin, Vice Minister of the Ministry of industry and information technology, believes that the reasons for the growth of the industrial robot industry are various, including the deterioration of the international trade environment, the increasing downward pressure on the global economy, and the sluggish development of major application industries such as automobiles and electronics

Qu Daokui said: now the traditional advantageous market is shrinking, and new markets have not been formed. Robots are three high industries, with high talent intensity, high technology intensity and high investment intensity. More importantly, the low added value of robots is difficult to support the high investment in R & D and innovation

he also pointed out that at present, as long as customers who have been in contact with experimental machines know that the foam of service robots is beginning to burst, and many angels are transforming into demons. How to support market data is a big problem; Although there are many product prototypes of special robots, it needs a real Phoenix Nirvana process to form industry and market

core technology as for 3D printing works, it is difficult to break through the last kilometer

data show that in 2018, the output of industrial robots in China reached 148000 sets, accounting for more than 38% of the global output. Under the high output, another problem that cannot be ignored is that China's high-end robots still rely on imports

the "China robot industry development report 2019" released by the China Electronics Society shows that among the three core components, domestic self-made brand controller products are still slightly lacking in software response speed, ease of use and stability, but the hardware platform has been equivalent to foreign products in processing performance and long-term stability, and the speed fluctuation index of some servo products has been lower than 0.1%, The technology gap at home and abroad has begun to show a decreasing trend that the diameter of the mandrel should be 2.5 times the diameter of the commodity

I have been working on industrial robots for decades, and I have seen many enterprises rise and fall, and finally encounter the problem of the last mile. In fact, this is a common phenomenon in the whole basic industry of our country. Over the years, state-owned enterprises and private enterprises have adopted a strategy called "grow bigger first and then become stronger". In fact, this is a road of no return. Being bigger means sacrificing the quality of products and technological breakthroughs, so I don't see a company that goes this way. Li Zexiang, a professor at the Hong Kong University of science and technology, said bluntly

in Li Zexiang's view, in the past two decades, China's robot high-end equipment industry has grown from scratch, from small to large, especially in the field of market application, has made great progress. In a very few areas, some enterprises can break through the last mile and enter the world's first-class brand, but many subdivisions need to be improved, and mechanism innovation and talent training must be carried out

technology integration embraces the spring of the robot industry

Karel eloot, McKinsey's global senior managing partner and head of McKinsey's Asian operation consulting business and IOT, believes that in new industries such as food, beverage, chemistry and metal processing, the robot industry is still growing, and the global robot industry will create a value of $1trillion in 2025

the development direction of robots in the future must be human-computer interaction. From the platform of the laboratory, human-computer interaction has come very far. Yang Guangzhong, Professor of Imperial College and editor in chief of scientific robot, pointed out

the growth of robots has brought earth shaking changes to traditional industrial robots. More importantly, robots are constantly expanding and extending to other fields, including manufacturing, medical treatment, health, national defense, services and consumption. This is the hope and space for the real development of robots in the future. Qu Daokui said

in fact, in the face of these problems, Chinese robot fatigue experiments are widely used in aerospace, automobile, shipbuilding, metallurgy, construction and other industries, and are also constantly releasing positive signals. In the field of domestic industrial robots, the harmonic reducer developed by Shenzhen Han's laser can be customized by customers, and its accuracy is equivalent to that of international brands such as nebtesco; Youbixuan released Wukong robot, which can realize the functions of photographing, shooting, equipment interconnection and so on; China has formed large-scale products in the fields of unmanned aerial vehicles, underwater robots, etc.

Qu Daokui said: opportunities and challenges coexist, and change and subversion have become the norm. Everyone will no longer be spring because of the rapid development of robots, or winter because of the slight development lag. The future development will definitely be wavy
