The Development Trend of Collaborative Robots in China in 2023

Universal RobotsrobotPublish the latest forecasts for automation trends to 2023.Universal Robots Prediction, China in 2023collaborative robotThe market will maintain a strong momentum of development, while flexibility, high-load, full-scenario, and customer co-creation will become rigid needs for Industrial development.

Collaborative robot market will remain strong

According to data from market research firm ABI Research, the compound annual growth rate of the global collaborative robot market is expected to reach 32.5% between 2020 and 2030, and the market size is expected to increase to US$8 billion in 2030.

Behind the huge demand for robots is not only the market’s extreme requirements for efficiency, but also the labor shortage problem generally faced by the global manufacturing industry, and China is no exception. The difficulty in recruiting workers is first reflected in ordinary jobs, because low-paying repetitive jobs lack a sense of accomplishment and attraction for young people.

At the same time, the difficulty of recruiting is also reflected in the gap of high-skilled personnel. Automation has created many new jobs while replacing basic tasks, catalyzing the demand for highly skilled personnel. In recent years, the recruitment rate of high-skilled talents in China has remained above 2 for a long time, and one technical and skilled talent corresponds to at least two positions, which shows the degree of demand.

By using safe, flexible, and convenient collaborative robots to replace tedious, dangerous, repetitive, and labor-intensive tasks, workers can focus on more valuable work, and improve employee satisfaction with work while improving production efficiency degree and sense of accompanydigital transformationWith the continuous acceleration of labor costs and high labor costs, Universal Robots expects that in 2023, China and the global collaborative robot market will continue to present a blue ocean and maintain a strong momentum of development.

Agile Response to the Ever-changing Needs of Flexible Manufacturing

The recurrence of the epidemic continues to impact the global supply chain, amplifying the importance of the resilience of the manufacturing supply chain again.In a highly uncertain environment, global manufacturing companies urgently need to passDigitizingAutomated means to improve the flexibility of production and the leanness of management to achieve agile production.

In addition to the global macro environment, the rapidly changing demands of end consumers in the digital age have also put another heavy pressure on enterprise production, forcing enterprises to “determine production according to demand” and respond quickly to market demand. The traditional manpower model cannot adapt to the fast pace of flexible production. Enterprises must upgrade the automation of the factory system in all aspects.As enterprises embrace automation, traditionalIndustrial robotDue to lack of flexibility and difficulty in deployment, its application scenarios are limited. In order to better adapt to the requirements of flexible, fast and safe deployment, more and more enterprises are turning their attention to collaborative robots.

Universal Robots predicts that in 2023, the industry will continue to put forward extremely high flexibility requirements for automation methods, so as to quickly respond to the ever-changing needs of flexible manufacturing. Unlike traditional industrial robots, collaborative robots can directly interact with employees in close quarters, matching existing work cells and workstations, without additional safety fences or changes to existing plant layouts.

The installation and operation of the collaborative robot is also very convenient, and it can be flexibly and quickly redeployed and switched tasks in multiple production lines, and even operators with no programming experience can use an intuitive and convenient interface with a little training. Quick setup and operation.

Collaborative robot payload and arm reach new heights

In the past, collaborative robots were mainly used by customers to handle tasks with low load requirements due to their flexible and lightweight features. However, in recent years, more and more companies hope to use collaborative robots to replace tasks previously performed by traditional industrial robots in areas with higher loads. The new product UR20 launched by Universal Robots earlier this year fully responds to this trend. illustration.

Universal Robots predicts that collaborative robots with higher payloads and longer arms will be able to provide enterprises with targeted solutions in richer scenarios in 2023.

Over the past few years, China and the global market have witnessed the complete transformation of the manufacturing industry by automation. Looking forward to the future, Universal Robots predicts that collaborative robots will play a more important role than ever in the process of enterprise automation upgrades. Collaborative robot companies should continue to deepen their efforts in load, scene requirements, ecological collaboration, customer insight, etc., to provide Industrial development provides more solid support.
