City’s robot production volume hits ¥100b
    2018-04-11  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THE annual robot production volume in Shenzhen reached 100 billion yuan (US$15.87 billion) in 2017, according to a report released by Shenzhen Municipal Economic, Trade and Information Commission at the sixth China Information Technology Expo on Monday.


The number of the city’s enterprises engaging in robot production increased to 594 in 2017 from 469 in 2016. Bao’an, Longhua and Longgang have seen rapid growth in the number of robot manufacturers.


In terms of robot production volume as well as number of enterprises, Nanshan District ranked first with 27.9 billion yuan (US$4.43 billion) in annual production volume in 2017. The number of robot enterprises in Nanshan makes up 36 percent of the total in Shenzhen.


The report said that service robots are seeing the fastest growth and robots for industrial use are being produced on a large scale. The leading enterprises in the industry are emerging, the report said. Service robots are keeping good momentum in segmented markets with Automated Guided Vehicles covering logistics, and drones and household robots becoming popular, according to the report.


Howard E. Michael, former chairman with the New York-based Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE), said robots and intelligent systems will play more significant roles in various sectors, ranging from industrial manufacturing, agriculture and transportation to logistics, household services, pharmaceutical manufacturing and education.


As Shenzhen has a solid foundation in the industry, Qiao Yueshan, deputy chief with the IT department at the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, said the ministry will support and push forward the development of the robot industry in Shenzhen. The ministry will speed up research on key technologies in artificial intelligence and robotics, construct a public service platform, build an industrial innovation system and make breakthroughs in artificial intelligence, robot and driverless technologies.


The IEEE is formed in 1963 from the amalgamation of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers and the Institute of Radio Engineers. It is the world’s largest association of technical professionals with more than 420,000 members in over 160 countries. (Han Ximin)
