Summary

Table of Contents

Speed reducers, drive and controllers, and servomotors constitute the core parts of industrial robots, of which speed reducers are divided into RV reducers, harmonic reducers and planet speed reducers.

At present, 75% of the world's precision speed reducers are monopolized by Japan-based Nabtesco and HarmonicDrive, which provide speed reducers to ABB, FANUC, KUKA and other international mainstream robot manufacturers. Nabtesco accounts for 60% share of the global RV reducer market, while HarmonicDrive enjoys the absolute superiority in the harmonic reducer market.

Since 2013, Chinese industrial robot market has ranked first in the world, with the sales volume of 68,000 sets in 2015 (up 19.9% year on year, accounting for 26.8% of the global total). Driven by Made in China 2025, Robot Industry Development Plan (2016-2020) and other industrial policies, China’s robot sales volume is expected to exceed 80,000 sets in 2016 and outnumber 180,000 sets in 2020.

Nevertheless, China has been dependent on the imported precision speed reducers as core components, with the import dependency of about 75%. This is attributed to two aspects: First, the wide technical gap between China and foreign countries; second, the small market size which makes a scale effect impossible. In recent years, with the development of industrial robots in China, precision speed reducers and other key components made in China have played a crucial role in the whole industry, and been included in a number of industrial plans; meanwhile, Robot Harmonic Gear Reducer (GB / T30819- 2014), Robot Precision Cycloid Pinwheel Reducer and other industrial standards have been introduced in succession to technically support the development of industrial robot speed reducers in China.

In addition, a dozen of domestic Chinese companies such as Shaanxi Qinchuan Machinery Development, Shanghai Mechanical & Electrical Industry, Nantong Zhenkang Imp.& Exp., Zhejiang Hengfengtai Reducer MFG., Leader Harmonious Drive Systems and Beijing CTKM Harmonic Drive Co., Ltd. have enhanced development and application of industrial robot speed reducers. As of the end of 2016, more than 20 Chinese companies had developed precision speed reducers, and some of them even had achieved small batch production. Meanwhile, emerging enterprises such as AceStep in the domestic market focused on the development of the third-generation QB-configuration industrial robot precision speed reducers and launched QB-80E and QB-40E speed reducers worldwide in December 2016. Foreign investors also quickened their pace in China, for instance, Nabtesco’s factory in Changzhou, China was opened and put into operation in May 2016 with the planned annual capacity of 100,000 speed reducers in Phase I to mainly serve the world's four major robot makers; by 2020, the annual capacity will jump to 200,000 speed reducers.

With the maturity of technologies as well as the expansion of the industrial scale, it is expected that China's industrial robot reducer market demand will exceed RMB4 billion by 2020, of which about RMB3 billion will stem from RV reducers.
