“China has become the world's largest industrial robot market for four consecutive years. In 2016, China sold 89,000 units, and it is expected to increase to 150,000 units in 2020 with a total of 800,000 units.” On November 15, Wang Ruixiang, President of China Machinery Industry Federation revealed in the Third China Manufacturing Summit.

At present, all countries in the world are accelerating the manufacturing of smart devices. The United States is vigorously promoting intelligent manufacturing characterized by industrial internet and a new generation of robots in a strategic layout in order to occupy the global commanding height. Germany proposed the Industry 4.0 initiative to boost manufacturing new advantages through smart manufacturing. The EU has also made it clear in its growth strategy of 2020 that it will focus on the advanced manufacturing based on smart manufacturing technology so as to enhance the competitiveness of European industries. 


According to IFR statistics, the global industrial robot sales topped $ 13.2 billion for the first time last year, with outstanding performance in Asia with sales of $ 7.6 billion. Sales in major countries such as China, South Korea, Japan, the United States, and Germany accounted for 3/4 of worldwide sales.


The transformation of smart manufacturing is both an opportunity and a challenge for manufacturing. "The old manufacturing enterprises are cheaper, and they turned out to be relatively successful because of huge investment, waste of resources and environmental damage." Zhengdong Dong, general manager of Shanghai Highly (Group) Co., Ltd., said that the new manufacturing in the future will focus on simulation, software, digital design so that enterprises can reduce cost.


Dong Mingzhu, chairman of Gree Electric believes that the new manufacturing is not only innovative thinking but also innovative strength. Currently, intelligent equipment products of Gree have covered more than 10 fields such as CNC machine tools, industrial robots, servo robots, intelligent storage equipment, and intelligent detection with over a hundred kinds of specifications. The cumulative output is more than 5,500 sets of automation equipment with the cumulative output value more than 2 billion yuan. In the first half of this year, Gree equipment smart equipment business revenue achieves 962 million yuan, an increase of 27 times over the previous year.
