China Industrial Robots Installed Capacity Exceeds 50% of the Global Total

In the first half of 2023, the production of industrial robots in China reached 222,000 sets, a year-on-year increase of 5.4%. The installed capacity of industrial robots accounted for over 50% of the global market, firmly ranking as the world’s largest industrial robot market. The overall robot industry in China has maintained a stable growth trend.

At sea, the latest generation of inspection robots are accelerating their application to intelligent offshore oil and gas platforms. On land, China independently developed industrial robots have made breakthroughs in the application of automotive welding. Four robots work together and can weld a vehicle body in just 50 seconds.

At present, the density of robots in China’s manufacturing industry has reached 392 per 10,000 workers, and the installed capacity of industrial robots exceeds 50% of the global total. At the same time as the rapid growth of industrial robot installation, service robots and special robots in China have also continued to develop rapidly, with application scenarios constantly expanding and the localization process of core components accelerating. In the first half of this year, China’s production of service robots reached 3.53 million sets, a year-on-year increase of 9.6%.

With the steady implementation of the “Robot+” initiative, there are 273 specialized, refined, and new “Little Giant” enterprises in the field of robotics, and 10 robot enterprises have grown into single champions in the manufacturing industry. In 2022, the operating revenue of China’s robot industry exceeded 170 billion yuan, maintaining double-digit growth.

At the beginning of 2023, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology issued the “Robot+” Application Action Implementation Plan, accelerating the expansion and application of robots in various industries. According to the forecast from GGII, the annual sales of industrial robots in China will be approximately 333,000 units in 2023, a year-on-year increase of 9.90%.
