original title: the market will reach 556billion in 2022, and industrial interconnection will drive the rapid growth of China's robot market

the IDC "global robot and UAV expenditure guide" updated in November 2018 shows that, The expenditure on robots, unmanned aerial vehicles and related services in China continues to grow at a high speed, reaching US $80.52 billion (about 556 billion yuan) by 2022, with an annual compound annual growth rate of 27%

the guide points out that China is the world's largest robot market, which is expected to account for more than 38% of the global total by 2022. In 2019, nearly half of the expenditure on robot systems in China will be in discrete manufacturing (including automotive, electronics, metal processing, etc.), with a market size of more than US $16.7 billion. Followed by process manufacturing, medical, retail and consumer industries

from the perspective of robot technology, the robot system expenditure in the Chinese market includes industrial robots, commercial service robots and consumer robots, such as "transient" electronic components soluble in water or heated and fusible, accessories, application software, network equipment, and related consulting services. In 2019, the expenditure of the robot market mainly focused on hardware procurement (including robot system, after-sales robot hardware and system hardware), accounting for about two-thirds of the total expenditure in the first two months of 2019, the fixed asset investment in the paper industry decreased by 5.6% year-on-year

Zhang Jingbing, director of IDC global robotics and Asia Pacific manufacturing research, believes that robots are still the top priority of technology investment for manufacturing enterprises in all major markets surveyed by IDC in 2018, including China. In the next five years, China's commercial service robots will also continue to grow at an annual growth rate of about 26%

this growth is mainly due to the improvement of the comprehensive intelligence level of service robots, the strengthening of practical functions, the improvement of user experience, and manufacturers' deep cultivation of vertical industry application scenarios. At the same time, IDC also expects that autonomous mobile robots and Intelligent Collaborative robots will be promoted and applied faster to help cross industry users improve production capacity, productivity and productivity

in fact, the reason why China can become the largest robot market lies in the strong demand for digital transformation of tens of millions of Chinese enterprises. In the next few years, another important reason for China to become the fastest-growing market for robots is the rapid promotion of industrial interconnection

why does industrial interconnection drive the rapid growth of the machine market? This should start with the functional architecture of the industrial interconnection platform

industrial interconnection platform is an industrial cloud platform that faces the needs of digitalization, networking and intelligence of manufacturing industry, builds a service system based on massive data collection, aggregation and analysis, and supports ubiquitous connection, flexible supply and efficient configuration of manufacturing resources. In terms of functional architecture level, it includes three core levels: edge, platform (Industrial PAAS) and application

among them, the bottom layer is the edge layer. The main function of this layer is to build the data foundation of the industrial interconnection platform through large-scale and deep-seated data collection, as well as protocol conversion and edge processing of heterogeneous data. Its main functions in the industrial interconnection platform are:

first, access different devices, systems and products through various communication means to collect massive data

second, realize normalization and edge integration of multi-source heterogeneous data by relying on protocol conversion technology

third, use edge computing devices to realize the aggregation and processing of underlying data, and realize the integration of data to the cloud platform

in other words, if there is no edge layer, there will be no massive industrial data, and the industrial interconnection platform without industrial data will not be of sufficient value. Among many devices in the edge layer, in addition to the production equipment equipped with sensors to collect data, various intelligent devices that can be connected are device assistance, and robots are one of the key devices in the edge layer

at present, in the overall solution of industrial interconnection provided by service providers, especially for the manufacturing industry, robots have become essential equipment, because robots can not only improve efficiency, but also be competent for various dangerous types of work, and can collect relevant data in various harsh environments

the key point is that the country is vigorously promoting the development of industrial interconnection. Since the release of made in China 2025 in 2015, a number of policies and measures have been issued in recent years to promote the development of industrial interconnection. At present, there are more than 70 million small and medium-sized enterprises in China, but most of them have not yet achieved informatization and digitalization, let alone embrace industrial interconnection

in 2016, IDC data showed that China's public cloud market was less than 3% of that of the United States. Even if the number of industrial cloud platform enterprises in China has soared by more than 100% in the past two years, this figure should not exceed 10%. How to interpret this data? Simply put, only manufacturing enterprises can further build or connect industrial interconnection on the cloud, so industrial cloud is the foundation of industrial interconnection

for enterprises, only by further building the industrial interconnection platform architecture, including the edge layer, platform layer and SaaS layer, can they truly transform into industrial interconnection platforms

for the industrial IOT, the function of the edge layer device is not only to collect data, but also to be used for edge computing. The equipment applying "edge computing" is not only a traditional controller or switch, but also needs to meet three necessary capabilities: the ability to collect edge data, intelligent computing such as oxide skin, metal debris and so on, and operable decision feedback. Obviously, more intelligent robot devices will be the first choice for edge layer devices, and its position in the edge layer is increasingly important

it is conceivable that if the number of small and medium-sized enterprises in China can reach 50% in the next five years, and if 30% of them use robot equipment, the volume of China's 70million small and medium-sized enterprises. Plus central enterprises and large enterprises, what a big robot market this will create
