With increasing demand for industrial automation and intelligentization, global industrial robot industry flourishes, hitting a record high in 2013 with annual sales and ownership arriving at 178,000 units and 1.332 million units, up 12.0% and 7.9% year on year, respectively.

Global industrial robot capacities are concentrated in Japan, about 60% of the global total, while sales markets are mainly in Japan, the U.S., Germany, South Korea and China, which held a combined share of 70.2% in 2013.

China industrial robot industry sprouted in 2003, sped up from 2010, and overtook Japan as the world’s largest consumer market in 2013 for the first time. According to China Robot Industry Alliance (CRIA) statistics, industrial robot sales volume in China in 2013 was 36,560 units, or 1/5 of the global total, and is expected to reach 45,000 units in 2014 and around 100,000 units in 2017.

In spite of this, the Chinese industrial robot market is still dominated by foreign companies, which sold more than 27,000 units of industrial robots in China in 2013, 74% of total sales volume, of which ABB, FANUC, Yasukawa Electric and KUKA occupied 65% or so, and nearly monopolized high-end fields like industrial robot manufacturing and welding.

In addition, China’s industrial robot density (the number of robots used by every 10,000 workers) is much lower than that in developed countries, standing at only 30 in 2013, well below the global average of 62, in stark contrast to 437 in South Korea, 323 in Japan and 282 in Germany around the same time.

Being optimistic about the Chinese market due to multiple factors of positive policies, replacement of manpower by robot, industrial transformation and upgrading and increasing downstream demand, companies at home and abroad are stepping up efforts to make presence in China industrial robot industry.

ABB'Continues to enhance its exposure in the Chinese market and has introduced 10 robots; in 2014, ABB Engineering entered into an agreement with Zhongyeda Electric on cooperation in robot field.

YASKAWA Electric: In Jun. 2013, Yaskawa (China) Robotics Co., Ltd., a new factory with total investment of USD48 million went into production, and manufactured mainly industrial robot and robotic systems, with designed annual capacity of 12,000 robots and 3,000 units for the time being.

KUKA Robotics: In Mar. 2014, the robot plant located in Shanghai started operation, with designed annual capacity of 5,000 units, one third of KUKA Robotics’ total output.

Kawasaki Heavy Industries: Kawasaki Precision Machinery (Suzhou) Ltd. began construction in Dec. 2013, and is scheduled to be put into production in Apr. 2015, with initial capacity of 2,000 units, manufacturing mainly robots for automobile welding and parts handling. It is expected that the capacity will be lifted to 10,000 units by 2017.

SIASUN Robot & Automation: A leader among local Chinese robot companies; posted revenue of RMB407 million from industrial robot business in 2013, a year-on-year jump of 35.6%. In Mar. 2014, the company first realized industrialization of semiconductor robot; in Jul. of the same year, the SIASUN Robot northern headquarters worth RMB3.623 billion were settled in Qingdao National High-tech Industrial Development Zone.

Anhui Efort Equipment: In Dec. 2013, the “industrial robot” industrial park project with investment of RMB2.2 billion started building, and is planned to go into operation at the end of 2015, developing annual capacity of 10,000 industrial robot bodies, core parts and peripheral equipment. In Nov. 2014, the company cooperated with Italian CMA to enhance spray painting robot business.
