IT House News on September 3, according to, the 2022 China Robot Industry Development Conference was held in Suzhou, Jiangsu Province yesterday. The data released by the China Machinery Industry Federation Robot Branch at the conference shows that in 2021, the sales of China's industrial robot market will grow rapidly, and the sales volume will reach a record high, ranking first in the world for 9 consecutive years. IT House learned that statistics show that in 2021, the Chinese industrial robot market will sell a total of 271,000 industrial robots, a year-on-year increase of 50.1%. Industrial robot sales account for more than 50% of the world's total, and the density of manufacturing robots has reached 322 units per 10,000 workers. Among them, the sales volume of multi-joint robots in the Chinese market still ranks first among all models, with annual sales of 181,000 units, a year-on-year increase of 60.8%, which is the model with the highest growth rate. In addition, last year, domestic self-owned brand industrial robots sold 87,000 units, an increase of about 50% year-on-year, and the proportion of total market sales increased to 32%. According to Wang Weiming, director of the First Division of Equipment Industry of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the application of industrial robots in China has covered 60 major industries and 168 medium-level industries in the national economy. In 2021, the output of service robots in China will reach 9.214 million units, a year-on-year increase of 48.9%. While the special robot market is growing steadily, important breakthroughs have been achieved in high-complexity products such as space robots, deep-sea robots, and surgical robots. Industrial robots are multi-joint manipulators or multi-degree-of-freedom mechanical devices widely used in the industrial field.
