Industrial automation control technology is a combination of control theory, instrumentation, computer and information technology to achieve detection, control, optimization, scheduling, management and decision-making in industrial production processes, to increase production, improve quality, reduce consumption, ensure safety, etc. Sexual technology. At present, the industry mainly involves power, electronics, computers, artificial intelligence, communications and electromechanical.
With the acceleration of China's traditional industrial technology transformation, factory automation and enterprise information development, the demand for industrial automation systems will continue to grow. Last year, the market size of China's industrial automatic control system reached 380 billion yuan. Due to the wide variety of industrial automation control system devices, large market demand, and fierce competition, domestic enterprises still have a large gap in key technology research and product manufacturing of high-end products compared with foreign countries. In recent years, domestic companies have accelerated the introduction of foreign production technology and independent research and development, and have continuously narrowed the technological gap with foreign companies. At the same time, domestic comprehensive enterprises also have certain advantages in local production, product prices and sales channels.
From the perspective of the industrial chain, the upstream of the industrial automatic control system industry is mainly electrical components, steel and various mechanical components; downstream mainly involves chemical, electric power, robots, electric vehicles, rail transit and other fields. Among them, the market demand for downstream robots and rail transit will expand year by year, which will have a great impetus to the rapid development of the industrial automation industry, and is expected to become an important direction for the diversified development of industrial automation control enterprises.
Traction systems, signal control systems, converters, motors and high voltage boxes for rail traffic are typical industrial drive and power handling equipment. As China's urban rail transit construction continues to grow at a high speed, the industrial automation control system equipment industry will also usher in rapid development opportunities. As of last year, the rail transit planning of 44 cities in China has been approved. 26 cities have opened urban rail transit operations, with a total of 116 lines, with a total length of 3,618 kilometers. Among them, the subway is 2,658 kilometers, accounting for 73.4%. In addition, the mileage of new rail transit lines in China's cities last year was 445 kilometers, an increase of 14% over the previous year. It is estimated that by 2020, there will be 50 cities in China with urban rail transit, and the total mileage of operations is expected to reach 6,000 kilometers.
In addition, with the increase of labor costs in China and the continuous increase of support policies, the rapid popularization of industrial robots will drive the demand for automation control equipment to soar. The data shows that the demand for industrial robots in China last year was 66,000 units. By 2020, the number of robots will reach 200,000 units. The demand for servo motors and drives in the robot market will exceed 4.5 billion yuan, and the servo system integration business will reach 13 billion yuan. "Robot Industry Development Plan (2016-2020)" proposes that by 2020, the annual output of industrial robots in China will reach 100,000 units. Among them, the number of robots with six axes and above has reached more than 50,000, and the density of robots has reached more than 150.
