Multidepartmental issuance of the "Robot Plus" Application Action Implementation Plan to double the density of robots in the manufacturing industry by 2025 compared to 2020
Recently, 17 departments including the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and the Ministry of Education have issued the "Robot+" Application Action Implementation Plan (hereinafter referred to as the Plan), proposing that by 2025, the density of robots in the manufacturing industry will double compared to 2020, the depth and breadth of applications in the service robot and special robot industries will be significantly improved, and the ability of robots to promote high-quality economic and social development will be significantly enhanced.
The Plan clarifies its main objectives, proposes to focus on ten key application areas, break through more than 100 innovative application technologies and solutions for robots, promote more than 200 typical application scenarios for robots with high technological level, innovative application modes, and significant application results, create a group of "robot+" application benchmarking enterprises, and build a group of application experience centers and experimental verification centers. The Plan clearly deepens the "robot+" application in the key field, enhances the basic support capacity of the "robot+" application, proposes to build a collaborative innovation system for robot production and use, build a "robot+" application experience and experimental verification center, and accelerate the development and promotion of robot application standards.
The Plan proposes to improve the teaching content and practical environment of robotics in colleges and universities at all levels, and develop more functions and supporting course content for teaching, practical training, competitions, and other scenarios. Cultivate and introduce high-end R&D talents and standardized talents for robot applications, strengthen international exchange of talents, and create leading talents and innovation teams. Encourage robot enterprises and user units to cooperate with ordinary universities, research institutes, vocational colleges, etc. to jointly build talent internship and training bases, jointly carry out robot application talent cultivation, and provide more employment channels. Organize robot application skills competitions in segmented industries to discover and cultivate more high-quality robot technical and skilled talents.
The "China Robot Industry Development Report (2022)" points out that the integration of new generation information technology, biotechnology, new energy technology, new material technology, etc. with robot technology is accelerating. The application of robots in automobile manufacturing, electronic manufacturing, warehousing and transportation, medical rehabilitation, emergency rescue, and other fields is continuously expanding. It is estimated that the global robot market will reach US $51.3 billion in 2022. Among them, the scale of China's robot market will reach 17.4 billion US dollars, with an average annual growth rate of 22% in five years.
New energy vehicles are the main direction for the transformation, upgrading, and green development of the global automotive industry, as well as the strategic choice for high-quality development of China's automotive industry. At the press conference, relevant officials from the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology stated that the next step would be to promote the new energy vehicle industry to a new level.
Robots are known as "the pearl at the top of the crown of manufacturing industry", which is an important indicator of a country's technological innovation and high-end manufacturing level. The relevant person in charge of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology stated that the next step would be to accelerate the high-quality development of China's robot industry.
