Recently, the 2022 World Robot Report released by the International Robotics Federation (IFR) shows that the average density of global manufacturing robots is 141 industrial robots per 10,000 employees, and China will use 322 industrial robots per 10,000 employees The density is ranked fifth in the world. The density of industrial robotics is the key indicator of the degree of automation of manufacturing. In 2021, the five countries with the highest levels of global manufacturing are South Korea, Singapore, Japan, Germany, and China. The density of industrial robots in the United States was 274 per 10,000 employees in 2021, ranking ninth.
Affected by many factors, the growth of the robot industry was affected to a certain extent in 2022. The growth rate slowed down compared with 2021. Strengthen, and the emergence of emerging tracks.
According to the IFR comprehensive research data, it is expected that in 2022, the size of the Chinese industrial robot market will reach $ 8.7 billion, and this number will be more than $ 11 billion by 2024. The three major underlying factors to promote the development of industrial robots, include changes in population structure, increased cost of labor employment, and outstanding demand for downstream application industries.
While the market size continues to grow, the subdivision track is also continuously expanding. Robots, collaborative robots, mobile operation robots, etc. These segments have attracted the attention and joining of many large manufacturers and investment institutions, and the relevant participation forces have gradually developed into industrialization. As a result, the panoramic map of the industrial robot industry has been further expanded.
As a supplement to industrial robots, although the birth time is not long, it is undoubtedly one of the hottest tracks. From the perspective of development prospects, collaborative robots can meet the application needs of multiple scenarios in industry and services and have broad development prospects. In this field, the technology gap between domestic and foreign manufacturers has gradually narrowed, and in the domestic market, domestic manufacturers share a share of about 70%, and they are currently in the stage of rapid development. Recently, the card -saving robot has begun listing counseling, and it is expected to become the first share of collaborative robots.
In addition to collaborative robots, emerging fields such as humanoid robots, four-foot robots, exoskeleton robots, etc. have also received the attention and expectations of the industry, the investment community, and even the general public. In early October 2022, Tesla launched its first humanoid robot Optimus prototype, making humanoid robots attract attention again.
With the continuous improvement of core component manufacturers, the coordinated development of the upstream and downstream industrial chain of robots, the growth period of mutual benefit and win -win and profitability will not come.
