Based on the Les Échos on August 16, 2017, China is increasingly concerned about the development of industrial automation. In 2016, the total sales of industrial robots set a new record.
According to the statistical data of International Federation of Robotics (IFR), China totally sold 87,000 robots throughout the year of 2016, reaching the highest level on record and accounting 30% of all robots sold out all over the world. Moreover, this proportion is still on the rise.
Comparatively, China sold 68,600 robots throughout the year of 2015. IFR pointed out in a communiqué that the total sales of China’s industrial robots would increase at an average rate of 15% to 20% from 2018 to 2020.
Over the past two years, industrial capitalization-related technologies in China have developed rapidly. The Made in China 2025: The Plan of Action issued by the State Council of the People’s Republic of China in 2015 indicated that by 2020 each 10,000 Chinese would use 150 robots rather than 36 and thus China would squeeze into the list of world’s top 10 most automated countries. According to the estimation, every 10,000 South Koreans would use 531 robots; every 10,000 Germans 201; every 10,000 Americans 176; every 10,000 Frenches 127.
Besides, the target of promoting the industrial level and sales of robots was also put forward in the Made in China 2025: The Plan of Action. The market share of robots had been lifted from 25% in 2013 to 33% in 2016.
