04月13 Imported Robots Takes 90% Market
“Surgical robots are another piece of ‘big cake’ outside of industrial robots, but what is the core technology in our field that has been monopolized by foreign companies? What should we do?” At the National Robot Development Forum held on April 2, Shanghai Transportation University of Mechanical and Power Engineering Professor Cao Qixin’s words opened the domestic robot industry status of the “tip of the iceberg.”
With the gradual disappearance of our country’s demographic dividend and the requirement of “Made in China 2025”, robot replacement has become the trend of the general trend, which also makes the Chinese robot for four consecutive years reelected the world’s first, all over the country also put the robot industry in the priority development position.According to statistics, the domestic focus on the development of the robot industry to reach 28 provinces, robot industrial park reached more than 40, more than 500 robot enterprises.
But with the robot “hot” in sharp contrast to the “huge consumer market in China, the local brand share is only 4% .
In a small glass bottle, “Da Vinci” surgical robot for a grape to do “skin” suture surgery, Cao Qixin said that the Massachusetts Institute of Technology robot surgery based on the “Da Vinci” completed a rapid and accurate operation, the advantages of small wounds, less bleeding, recovery time is also greatly accelerated. “The United States has 3,000 existing surgical robots, and only 60 in China, the potential market up to billions.” He believes that the size of centimeters to calculate the “Da Vinci” by virtue of its precision, almost monopolized the domestic high-end medical robot market.
“Robot sub-education robot, entertainment robot, medical robot, public service robot, storage robot, industrial robot, etc., surgical robot is only a small piece of it, but represents the reality of the industry.” Beijing Institute of Technology, Professor Ma Hongbin told Reporter, the core components of the robot include electronic control system, servo motor and reducer, with the corresponding three key core technologies, mainly in Japan, Fanuc, Japan Yaskawa, Germany KUKA and Switzerland, ABB and a few foreign robot enterprises.
This led to two status quo: First, foreign robotics accounted for about 90% of China’s robot market share. Only Farnase, Yaskawa, KUKA and ABB four companies to seize about 65% of the market share. And domestic enterprises due to accuracy, reliability and stability, and so difficult to match the former, it is difficult to be trusted by users. This is also the forum on the Chinese Academy of Sciences Wu Hongxin repeatedly stressed.
Second, due to the lack of key core technology, most of the domestic robot industry is doing the stage of system integration. Master the core technology of the upstream enterprises, but also hold the absolute right to speak, earn excess profits. System integrators can only earn about 10% of the gross margin.
