New Report on Industrial Robot Industry in China

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Research Report on Industrial Robot Industry in China, 2014-2018" report to their offering.

An industrial robot is an automatically controlled, reprogrammable, multipurpose manipulator programmable in three or more axes. Although major enterprises focus on robotics for a long time, no enterprise can master the core technology of the whole industry chain.

For instance, ABB has an advantage in robot control technology and software while Fanuc enjoys an advantage in numerical control technology. Meanwhile, Yaskawa Electric possesses the advantage in servomotor and robots in cleaning field while KUKA Group is competitive in control and software. Core control and software that decide the performance of robots are kept in the original countries though several international giants establish production bases in China. Therefore, industrial robots are technology-intensive products while the industry possesses high technical barriers.

The top 4 industrial giants, including KUKA, ABB, Yaskawa and Fanuc, build production bases in China in recent years. ABB locates its global headquarters of robot business and one of the major production bases in Shanghai.

The demand for industrial robots increases rapidly as labor costs increase and market competition becomes intense in China. The average annual installation volume of industrial robots was 15,000 in China in 2008-2012. China will be the largest market of industrial robots in 2014.

The installation volume of industrial robots exceeded 20,000 in China in 2013. Automobile industry remained the major application area while the market of industrial robots expanded significantly in downstream application areas. The application in whole vehicles and automobile accessories accounted for less than 50% in downstream application areas, which expanded from traditional automobile industry to other industries.
