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.

The scale of China's robot industry is growing rapidly. In 2021, the operating revenue of the entire robot industry exceeded 130 billion yuan, and the output of industrial robots reached 366000 units, a tenfold increase over 2015, firmly ranking the world's largest industrial robot market.
