China’s robotics industry makes great progress17. August 2023
More than 500 robots were presented to visitors at the World Robot Conference. They ranged from the latest biomimetic robots to medical robots and agricultural robots that can pick fruit. More than 130 robot manufacturers and scientific institutions showcased their products at the four-day event. During the event, 30 of the 500 robots on display celebrated a world premiere at the WRC. The development, production and application of robots is considered an indicator of a country’s scientific and technological innovation as well as their manufacturing expertise. In China, the robotics industry has developed rapidly in recent years and has a strong impact on the country’s economy and social development. Robotics products often require CCC certification to be approved for import and operation in China.
China has included a guideline for the robotics industry in the 14th Five-Year Plan currently underway from 2021 to 2025. The country is expected to become a global hub for robotics by 2025, including cooperation with leading international companies and research institutions. The “Beijing Economic-Technological Development Area” has more than 60 smart factories in which logistics and service robots play an important role, said Liu Li, senior director of the relevant administrative committee of the industrial area.
Furthermore, more than 10 robot manufacturers from the “Sino-German Industrial Services Zone” in Foshon, Guangdong Province, showcased their latest equipment at the conference, which is used in fields including disinfection and laser cutting. Xin Guobin, China’s vice minister of industry and information technology, is positive about the future development of China’s robotics industry. “We are willing to cooperate with partners from around the world and move forward to a smart future,” Guobin said. China has a large and broad-based market for robots, enough resources for innovation and a suitable environment for the development of robots and related industries, the vice minister said.
