How should industry giants cope with the downturn in manufacturing and declining sales of robots

from September 26 to 27, at the 2019 annual User Conference of ABB baccalais held in Suzhou, Xiao Weirong, President of baccalais Greater China, told the 21st Century Business Herald that at present, there is a problem of declining market sales in the robot industry. Whether domestic robots or foreign brand robots, the business has been challenged, because the robot business is closely related to the automotive and electronic industries

China robot industry alliance released the statistical data of China's industrial robot market in 2018. Data show that the sales volume of China's industrial robot market fell for the first time, down 1.73% year-on-year. The sales of autonomous brand robots maintained a steady growth, while the sales of foreign brand robots fell

on September 16, the National Bureau of Statistics announced that in September this year, the profits of the automotive and electronic industries fell by 19.0% and 2.7% year-on-year, respectively. In August, the total retail sales of social consumer goods increased by 7.5% year-on-year, but car sales fell by 8.1%. The downturn in the industry has also brought about a decline in the field of industrial robots

According to Xiao Weirong, today's robot industry is facing a challenge. The key is whether we can have stronger competitiveness to get more business and provide more value to customers in the process of this challenge. This is what we should consider as robot suppliers. Whether the sales volume of the robot industry increases or decreases, the goal for them is definitely to grow

Xiao Weirong also mentioned that on September 12, abb in Shanghai Kangqiao helped customers optimize their solutions, and the robot super factory held a construction ceremony. The total investment of the plant is US $150million (about RMB 1billion). It is expected that the general technical requirements will be put into operation in 2021. In the future, the plant will adopt the most advanced automatic and digital manufacturing processes, which will strengthen ABB's leading position in China, the world's largest robot market

ABB predicts that by 2025, the global robot sales will increase from the current US $80billion to US $130billion. S-type sensors with small and medium force values are the largest robot market among them. In 2017, one third of the robots in the world were sold to China

Xiao Weirong also said that Kangqiao factory will be one of the R & D and production bases of baccalais, which is an important resource for the localization of baccalais in the future. On April 4, 2017, abb announced today that it will acquire baccalais, the world's largest independent supplier focusing on providing open solutions based on products and software for the field of machinery and factory automation

in addition, the industry's demand for robots in the future will be highly personalized. The flexibility of this super factory will be very good, which will give baccalais the opportunity to provide a one-stop full solution to the manufacturing industry, and add a lot of options to baccalais, as well as increase its technological competitiveness

digitalization is the highest manifestation of the manufacturing industry

Xiao Weirong also said that the current complex environment has brought great challenges to the manufacturing industry. First of all, the market of the automobile manufacturing industry is not good this year, and the decline of the automobile manufacturing industry has also had an impact on the plastic industry, which is one of the important industries involved in bekale. But he stressed that the growth of the whole business model of baccalais this year must be in the double digits. On the one hand, it benefits from ABB's collaborative resources, on the other hand, it benefits from the activity of baccalais in many manufacturing industries. This year, the plastic industry has declined, and baccalais has made great progress in printing, packaging, the Ministry of public security fire bureau still decided to eliminate this kind of composite materials, new energy and smart factories

Xiao Weirong said that China's manufacturing industry has come to a stage that must rely on innovation and development. The innovation of manufacturing industry should realize the continuous improvement of quality and the continuous decline of cost through the simplification of complex systems, the flexibility of processes and processes, reusable technologies and other methods, including the joint action of design ideas, working methods, and talent training, so as to truly move towards innovative development

as for the intellectualization and digitalization of manufacturing industry, he said that at present, the development stage of China's manufacturing industry (in all industries) is different, and some industries cannot reach the stage where we need to use digital and intelligent means. For the various concepts of digitalization, intellectualization and automation, he believes that digitalization is the highest form of expression at present, because intellectualization is also the form of expression of digitalization, and automation is also the form of expression of digitalization. According to different expressions, the words used in the industry may be different. Digitalization is the general boundary, followed by automation and intelligence
