China is the world-wide largest consumer of industrial robots

- Jan 18, 2019-

Japan accounts for more than half of the world's industrial robots, and many Japanese enterprises are also adding capital expenditure on robots to make robots a labor force to cope with many economic and social problems brought about by the aging population. China is a fast-growing market for industrial robots. According to IFR World Robotics statistics, the global sales of industrial robots in 2016 are 290,000 units, which is expected to increase to 630,000 units in 2021. From 2018 to 2021, it is expected that nearly 2.1 million new industrial robots will be installed in factories around the world.


Robot Application Era Comes and Deployment Robot Shocks Human Employment Causes Concern

Earlier last year, Gou said that robots would replace 80% of human beings in the next 10 years. In addition, public information refers to the fact that Foxconn has deployed more than 40,000 robots in various production bases in the mainland, and combined with the mid-term report of Industrial Federation of Fujian in 2018, the number of industrial robots used in the production process is increasing, resulting in a reduction in human costs and an 11.91% decrease in human costs (excluding R&D human costs) compared with the same period of last year when revenue is rising.

Heshuo, also a factory of the generation of the iPhone, had assembled 8,000 to 10,000 automated robots on the production line as early as 2016. It used to take 100 workers to complete the work, but now it only needs 20 people with the help of robots.


In Kunshan, Jiangsu Province, the strategy of machine replacement was implemented many years ago. Kunshan regards robotics industry and intelligent manufacturing as the key economic development areas in the future, and helps Kunshan transform. Its robotics industry will be the next billion industries in Kunshan.

In September last year, Biguiyuan announced that it would join hands with Shunde to build a 10-square-kilometer robot valley. In five years, it would introduce 10 million scientific experts and plan to invest 80 billion yuan. This is after the realm of real estate, Biguiyuan has entered the frontier of science and technology. Hope to build a robotic ecological kingdom. Biguiyuan expects to join hands with universities and research institutes from all over the world to build a world-class robot research and development base and contribute to national intelligent manufacturing.

Of course, the development and application of innovative technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning and robots will bring a lot of jobs to be replaced by machines, but there will also emerge a lot of new jobs. Machines may become the main force of labor in the assembly line of large manufacturers. By 2020, more than 3 million industrial robots will be put into use in the world, a new era of robotic applications. Generation is coming.
