Robotic Applications in China's Automotive Industry
By: Yue Zhang, Jing Bing Zhang
This IDC Presentation features details on the application of industrial robots in the China automotive manufacturing industry. Key topics include the trends in China automotive manufacturing, key findings from IDC's manufacturing and robotics survey, most common application areas (use cases), leading industrial robot and automated guided vehicle vendors in the China market, and essential guidance for robotics technology buyers.
"The automotive manufacturing industry in China is experiencing high-speed development, especially OEMs. With policies support, new energy vehicles will face a boost in development; for example, Tesla is going to build factories in China in the very near future. The industrial robot usage in China's automotive industry will also face a huge opportunity. At the same time, we have to see the challenges that the industry is facing, characterized by limited financial budget, robot product quality concerns, and competition among robot vendors. We encourage forward-looking automotive manufacturers to seriously assess the applicability of industrial robotics technology to their manufacturing environments and be early to benefit from the use of industrial robots, such as much-improved operation agility, product quality consistency, and repeatability," says Yue Zhang, research manager, IDC China Manufacturing Insights.
