Global collaborative robot demand is increasing and 3C electronics is becoming a key application field.
With the maturity of artificial intelligence technology and products, the application of robots in the industrial field will become increasingly widespread. As an important subdivision of industrial robots, collaborative robots have the characteristics of high flexibility and no need to set guardrails to isolate human-machines, which can significantly improve production efficiency.
Collaborative robot market demand is increasing
In 2018, global cooperative robot sales accounted for 5.7% of the global industrial robot market, an increase of 1.3% over 2017 (4.4%). Since 2015, sales of global collaborative robots have continued to rise, and global sales are expected to exceed 50,000 units by 2020.
Capital boosts the development of collaborative robotics industry
From the perspective of capital flow, most of the domestic cooperative robot companies are still in the early stage of development, and the continuous injection of capital will inject new vitality into these enterprises and the entire collaborative robot industry.
Domestic collaborative robots are mainly used in 3C electronics
Collaborative robot products are mainly used in China, including 3C electronics, automobiles and parts, machining and other industrial fields, research and education fields, and food and beverage fields. With the continuous improvement of automation in these fields and higher quality and smarter in various fields, The demand for more flexible artificial intelligence products is growing, and the market demand for artificial intelligence products such as collaborative robots continues to show an upward trend.
Since 2014 and 2015, robot manufacturers such as ABB, Kawada, Fanuc, Yaskawa, and Bosch have started to launch collaborative robot products. Until 2018, sales of collaborative robot products have steadily increased, which is the reason for this trend. There are two main points:
1. Capital promotes the development of the industry, and the influx of more funds for the development of the industry, especially for the development of start-up companies.
2.3C Electronics, automotive and its parts, research and education, mechanical processing and other fields have increased the demand for automation and higher quality, more flexible and smarter artificial intelligence products, which has strongly increased the market demand for collaborative robot products.
