KUKA robot debuts the contemporary robot market


KUKA robot debugging contemporary market robots, robot throughout the global market, along with Japan and the European Labour force decreases, emerging markets such as China's rising labor costs and rising demand for the product quality, robot market scale growth significantly, until 2014, has maintained the double-digit growth. Moreover, the influence of the above background factors will continue to ferment in the future, and the scale of robot market is still expected to expand further.


In terms of industry demand, the demand for robots in electronic devices such as automobiles and semiconductors has increased significantly

Demand for industrial robots has grown significantly in the automotive and electronics sectors, such as semiconductors. But at the same time, demand for robots has been rising in other industries.


From the perspective of industrial robot types, driving and assembling and moving robots are the most favored

In terms of the types of robots needed in various industries, driven robots, assembly and moving robots were the most used. Meanwhile, welding and painting robots are in increasing demand in the automotive industry, while cleaning and moving robots are widely used in the electronic equipment industry.


Regional distribution of industrial robots: China and other Asian markets become growth engines

In terms of the geographical distribution of the industrial robot market, Japan has the largest number of industrial robots in the world, one of the important reasons is the shrinking labor force. China also faces a shrinking labor force, rising labor costs and a growing demand for better quality products, making it the world's second-largest industrial robot population after Japan. From 2011 to 2016, China's industrial robot market expanded by more than three times. Overall, the Asian market has become the "engine" of global industrial robot growth.


Global industrial robot giant competition and future development strategy

ABB, fanuc, kawasaki heavy industries, yaskawa electric and kuka are among the top five industrial robot makers by sales. The future development strategy of these giants mainly includes the following aspects: continue to develop the demand for industrial robots in various industries and increase sales; Pay close attention to and occupy the Chinese market with high growth; To further expand the use of industrial robots by developing cooperative robots with humans; Address the challenges posed by the rapid development of the Internet of things (IoT).


The global market for industrial robots is forecast to grow to $111 billion by 2020.


China has been the world's largest consumer market for industrial robots since 2013, and remains so. However, due to the lag in core technology for a long time, China's industrial robot industry still has many shortcomings, including the key parts are constrained by others, brand strength is relatively weak, and the lack of professional talents in the industry and so on. Compared with robot brands in Germany, Japan and other countries, China's domestic robots have great advantages in system integration and application end, but there is still a big gap between the robot body and core components and international giants, and a significant gap between the market share and the "five giants" mentioned above.
