National policies promote the booming automation industry
With the trend of the number of working-age people in China's manual workers decreasing year by year, at the same time, the average wage of domestic manufacturing industry has continued to grow rapidly. The compound annual growth rate from 2009 to 2016 is 13.9%. The sharp rise has become a serious challenge for most manufacturing companies. Contrary to this, the price of automation equipment is declining year by year; and in the process of the transition from the overall Chinese manufacturing industry to the higher-end industrial chain, more and more standardized equipment has been unable to effectively meet the actual needs of different enterprises. System integrators must be able to customize to meet the needs of flexible production according to the actual situation of the enterprise. Under the above-mentioned comprehensive factors, the current domestic industrial automation market is full of vitality.
Ms. Zhang Wenhua from Fuji Electric (China) Co., Ltd. Shenzhen Branch said that the “Yangchun” of the industrial automation market in the future is mainly reflected in: “Supply-side reform”-driven manufacturing upgrading, nurturing new industries, agricultural and other new opportunities and new demands in the market. In addition, the national “One Belt, One Road” development strategy will also promote high-speed rail, railway, highway, industrial/industrial parks, oil and gas pipelines/oil and gas reserves, power equipment/electric power engineering, warehousing and logistics, offshore engineering equipment/high-end ships, etc. Construction of project construction and automation equipment.
Judging from the current development situation, Ms. Zhang Wenhua believes that the intelligent transformation and upgrading of domestic equipment is faster than expected. On the one hand, due to national policies, the relevant policies issued by the local governments based on the “Made in China 2025” strategic plan are clearly given. The timetable for technological transformation, that is, 2017 will usher in a large-scale equipment transformation, and half of the manufacturing-scale production enterprises will realize fully automated production; on the other hand, due to the increase in labor costs and difficulties in recruiting workers, enterprises are also taking The machine replaces the manual production method.
Take the industrial robot industry as an example. According to the national robot technology roadmap and the “13th Five-Year Plan” of the robot industry, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology will have more than 100 robots per 10,000 manufacturing workers in China by 2020. "Internet + equipment manufacturing" has spawned a new production model and has become a hot spot for innovation. According to the “Made in China 2025” development plan, intelligent equipment and products will develop rapidly, and the manufacturing process will move towards intelligentization, realizing the optimization of manufacturing process simulation, digital control of manufacturing process, real-time monitoring of state information, etc., and “skilled workers” will be reduced. People will be more engaged in product design, process optimization, production system management, etc., and need to have strong analytical and problem-solving abilities, which will increase the number of “active jobs” of enterprises. All these industrial development trends will bring unlimited business opportunities to the industrial automation industry.
