Massive investment planned in ‘Made-in-China’ industrial robots : 100,000 industrial robots set to be built annually by 2020, with sales of service robots also expected to exceed 30 bn yuan by then, according to official forecasts
China has seen rapid growth in its research and development spending due to strong demand of reducing labour costsand increasing productivity, which should help further the country’s automation sector, according to analysts.
A working paper from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) showed just how fast China’s innovation input, measured by R&D (research and development) expenditure, increased by an average 22 per cent annually from 1998 to 2013, reaching US$190 billion in 2013.
During the same period, the country’s innovation output, or the number of domestic applications for invention patents, rose from 36,000 in 1998 to 825,000 in 2013.
The plan projected that China will be able to produce 100,000 Made-in-China industrial robots annually by 2020 and produce 500,000 industrial robots with six axis (those with six have greater flexibility than robots with fewer) or more annually. Sales of service robots will also exceed 30 billion yuan by 2020, according to the plan’s forecast.
Résumé en français
