The Robot Industry Is Strong, And The Servo Market Is Booming.

- Oct 17, 2018-

Servo control is a holistic system and solution. The core components include controllers, servo motors and drives. System integrators perform design programming, assembly of parts, installation and commissioning according to customer needs, and the business volume is usually 2 to 2.5 times that of the core components. The current servo-controlled product + system integration market is about 65 billion yuan, and it is expected to double to 1300 billion yuan by 2020.

To say that the topic is the hottest topic, the robot is definitely one. Asia is currently the world's largest industrial robots, accounting for 50% of the world's robots, while industrial robot control systems and automation products mainly involve servo motors, reducers, controllers and sensors. Servo system is an important part of industrial automation. With the rapid expansion of industrial robots and electronic manufacturing equipment in recent years, the application scale of servo systems in emerging industries will also accelerate.

Industrial robots strongly promote the development of the servo industry

Servo control is a holistic system and solution. The core components include controllers, servo motors and drives. System integrators perform design programming, assembly of parts, installation and commissioning according to customer needs, and the business volume is usually 2 to 2.5 times that of the core components. The current servo-controlled product + system integration market is about 65 billion yuan, and it is expected to double to 1300 billion yuan by 2020.

At present, the joint drive of the robot is inseparable from the servo system. The more joints, the higher the flexibility and precision of the robot, and the more servo motors are used. The robot has higher requirements on the servo system, and must meet the requirements of fast response, high starting torque, large dynamic torque inertia ratio, wide speed range, and adapt to the shape of the robot to achieve small size, light weight, acceleration and deceleration, etc. And requires high reliability and stability. At present, industrial robots use more AC servo systems.

Servo system costs account for up to 24% of industrial robots, second only to reducers. In recent years, with the improvement of industrial automation and the popularization of robot technology, servo systems will be increased in volume as robot sales continue to increase. According to relevant data, the average annual growth of robot sales in Asia in 2012-2015 is 15%, much higher than the growth rate of 6% in the Americas and Africa. In 2015, more than 140,000 industrial robots were sold in the Asia Pacific region. In 2014, the installed capacity of industrial robots in China, Japan, South Korea and Thailand accounted for 75% of the total in the Asian region. Ranked first, second, fourth and eighth in the world respectively.

Servo domestic brand market share is small

From the perspective of market share, the current market share of foreign servo companies in China is 75%. Among them, Japanese brands accounted for 50%; European and American brands accounted for 25%. Domestic brands only account for about 20% of the market. The performance of the robot is greatly affected by the servo system, so the key performance indicators of the precision servo system are always the primary factor for the comparison of the advanced. However, many of the domestic manufacturers' products have not yet reached the basic requirements, so the domestic servo system market is still dominated by foreign companies. The domestic servos have a long way to go, and they still need to work hard to catch up.

With the release of the "Made in China 2025" plan and the beginning of the "13th Five-Year Plan", local governments have introduced relevant planning rules, such as the manufacturing province of Guangdong, which is expected to be high-end by 2020, robots, high-end CNC machine tools, and intelligent special equipment. The output value of the equipment industry will reach more than 400 billion yuan.

In the next few years, from the product point of view, servo drives and motors and encoders are expected to maintain a market growth rate of more than 20%. The rapid growth of industrial robots will stimulate the development of the servo motor market. In the next five years, China's servo system industry will benefit from the impact of industrial upgrading, and will maintain rapid growth, and domestic alternative space is still very large.
