In order to meet the real needs of high-quality development faced by my country’s current manufacturing industry, the segmented track of Industrial Robots must not be bypassed. For a long time, industrial robots have been regarded as the “pearl at the top of the manufacturing crown”. Its R&D, manufacturing, and application are important symbols to measure a country’s technological innovation and high-end manufacturing level.

Despite the rough road and difficult start, in the continuous struggle of generations of scientific research workers, industry enterprises, and entrepreneurs in our country, from the 1980s when my country independently developed the first industrial robot, to today’s Industrial Robot application field in my country It has covered 52 industry categories and 143 industry categories such as automobiles, electronics, metallurgy, light industry, petrochemicals, and medicine. Although many difficulties still need to be overcome, in just the past forty years, my country’s industrial Robot Industry has basically formed a whole industrial chain system from parts to complete machines to integrated applications.

As a traditional industrial province, Jiangsu, in the context of a new round of global technological revolution and rapid industrial transformation, the continuous evolution of the new crown pneumonia epidemic, and the accelerated restructuring of industrial and supply chains, maintains its status as a major industrial province and walks out of “steady growth” “The road is particularly difficult, and the role of industry as the “ballast stone” of Jiangsu’s economy continues to be highlighted.

In the “14th Five-Year Plan” and the 2035 long-term goal outline, the national plan clearly stated for the first time that “maintain the proportion of manufacturing industry basically stable”, and Jiangsu is unique in including this item in the specific index system for the first time. Driven by the policy background, industrial robots, as an important subdivision track for the high-quality development of the manufacturing industry, have flourished and flourished in Jiangsu in recent years.

Striving to be the first, Jiangsu industrial robots are at the right time

In recent years, Jiangsu’s industrial robot industry has developed rapidly. According to the database of the Prospective Industry Research Institute, as of December 5, 2022, there were 28,866 industrial robot companies in Jiangsu Province, ranking first in the country; industrial robot companies were newly established in the past two years. There are 16,322 enterprises, accounting for 56.54%; there are 8,247 enterprises established within one year, accounting for 28.57%.

Policy first, the rapid rise stems from the layout of the article

The industrial robot industry in Jiangsu Province is developed, mainly due to two factors:

On the one hand, the industrial economy of Jiangsu Province has developed rapidly over the past 70 years since the founding of New China, from 760 million yuan in total industrial added value in 1952 to 4.46 trillion yuan in 2021. Especially since the reform and opening up, Jiangsu’s industrial economy has ranked among the top in the country, and its industrial economy has always been among the top three in the country.

On the other hand, since 2000, the high-tech industry represented by the electronics industry has risen rapidly. In 2003, the electronics industry became the first pillar industry in Jiangsu, with a strong momentum of development. Other high-tech industries, such as pharmaceutical manufacturing enterprises, aerospace vehicle manufacturing enterprises, and medical instrument and instrument manufacturing industries, have shown a rapid growth momentum, and Jiangsu’s high-tech industrial system has initially formed.

At the same time, the development of emerging industries is also inseparable from the support and support of favorable policies. Since 2018, Jiangsu Province has begun to make frequent efforts in the robot industry policy:

In May 2018, the “Implementation Opinions on the Development of a New Generation of artificial intelligence Industry in Jiangsu Province” was released, proposing the development of intelligent industrial robots such as welding, assembly, spraying, handling, and testing; supporting enterprises in Jiangsu Province and cities to become stronger and more refined, and to expand their presence in subdivided fields smart robot business.

In December 2018, the “Three-year Action Plan for the Development of the Robot Industry in Jiangsu Province (2018-2020)” was issued. It is estimated that the output value of the robot industry in the province will reach 100 billion yuan in 2020, with an average annual growth rate of more than 35%. The output will reach 10,000 units, forming a group of key robot leading companies, well-known brands and the development goals of characteristic industrial bases.

In August 2021, the “Jiangsu Province “14th Five-Year” Manufacturing High-Quality Development Plan” was issued, proposing to guide the cultivation of advanced manufacturing clusters and industrial chains, identify breakthroughs in industrial transformation and upgrading, and reshape the new engine of competitive advantage , to promote Jiangsu manufacturing to accelerate towards the middle and high end of the global industrial chain value chain.

Jiangsu continues to accelerate the industrial robot industry agglomeration, while continuing to extend the industrial chain.

Among them, the Nanjing robot industry chain has been extended to the field of artificial intelligence, and the industry’s competitive advantages and development potential have been further enhanced. Kunshan Robot Industrial Park is the first national incubator with the robot industry as the carrier in the country. Zhangjiagang and Haian Robot Industrial Parks are actively cultivating robot technology research and development platforms to create a robot cluster carrier. According to the incomplete statistics of 36 Krypton Jiangsu, there are currently 18 characteristic industrial robot cluster parks in Jiangsu Province, mainly concentrated in Nanjing, Xuzhou, Suzhou and other places, which is also consistent with the heat distribution of the above-mentioned enterprises.

Therefore, for some time to come, the manufacturing cluster effect will continue to overflow in Jiangsu Province, and the strength of the industrial robot industry with southern Jiangsu as the main core will drive the transformation and upgrading of the manufacturing industry in the Yangtze River Delta region.
