Statistics show that in 2016, the number of imported industrial robots in China surpassed that of Japan, ranking the first in the world. In 2018, the number of imported industrial robots reached 650,000, increasing by five times.However, due to the impact of trade between China and the United States, domestic production and sales of industrial robots are affected.In addition, the covid-19 outbreak has adversely affected global economic development, but in the medium to long term, the demand for robots is expected to increase.

In the context of the global spread of covid-19, the presence of industrial robots has increased.To keep factories running, automation and the need to economize are again in focus.Switzerland's ABB, Japan's kawasaki heavy industries and yaskawa electric are among the companies seeking to gain a foothold in China, the world's largest market.The battle for the "post-covid-19 era" has already begun.

"Compared with other countries, the robotization of industrial robots in China's production lines is progressing, and there is room for expansion," said Sami Atiya, President of ABB's industrial robotics and discrete automation division, according to the nikkei Chinese website. "we are also considering increasing production in the future."However, business activities have been affected due to the epidemic.The $130m Shanghai plant is ABB's third in China to be involved in the production of industrial robots and is due to open in 2021.ABB's new Shanghai plant plans to produce 90,000 robots a year, an unprecedented production scale for a single plant, according to industry insiders.

In addition to European companies actively building localized factories, Japan, as an important leader in the global industrial robot industry, is also actively increasing investment in China.For example, in 2019, kawasaki heavy industries set up a new research and development center for kawasaki robot and industrial automation applications in chongqing, seeking to expand its influence in China.According to statistics, the current share of Japanese industrial robot enterprises in the Chinese market is declining.According to Japan's ministry of economy, trade and industry, the share of Japanese industrial robots in China dropped from 65 percent in 2012 to 44 percent in 2017."There will be new demand for robots," the report said, citing jin huafang, President of kawasaki heavy industries, who has crafted a growth strategy against headwinds.Kawasaki heavy industries is considering producing a multi-joint robot that can perform complex movements at a cost of several billion yen.

Yaskawa electric completed its third plant in jiangsu province in 2018, raising local annual capacity by 50% to 18,000 units.Yaskawa electric will develop and produce a fast moving horizontal multi-joint robot in the joint venture."The model of local production has stabilized," said masahiro ogawa, head of the robotics department, according to the report. "local production is able to respond more carefully to customer demand than production in Japan alone."
