In recent years, with the development of key technology breakthroughs and application scenarios, commercial service robots have been at the breaking point."Subject to the technical bottleneck and low level of market acceptance, outbreaks of robot from the mass consumer market will also wait for quite a long time, but in view of the industry application and commercial scene robot is rapidly rising.This will drive the evolution of smart technology in hundreds of industries.The Chinese academy of engineering, the national 973 project chief scientist jian-rong tan on August 23, the robot of artificial intelligence in China industry association sponsored peak BBS "WRC2017 - robot business applications and launch the first industry application innovation competition".
Statistics show that the world's commercial services robot market is growing at a rate of 20 to 30 percent, and is expected to reach $46.18 billion by 2017.Mr Tam said that a number of industries would start the process of commercialising robots, including retail, catering, hotels, pension, real estate, finance, government affairs and logistics.Robots can be promoted wherever they are needed.
However, the real outbreak of the commercial robot market is inseparable from the development of upstream and downstream industry chain.At present, the commercial robot market is constrained by multiple factors.
According to reporter understanding, commercial service robot is facing common problems, on the one hand, the robot manufacturers actual demand of downstream application market is not clear, the downstream enterprises and application scenario dispersed, robots are overwhelmed, development cycle is long;On the other hand, in the process of intelligent transformation, traditional enterprises can effectively solve their own pain points in the process of intelligent transformation.
"The difficulties in the commercial robot market need to be solved: accurately identify the needs of each application industry;How downstream enterprises can use robots to solve pain points and needs;Lack of innovation in business model design;How to reduce the production and maintenance cost of the robot enterprise;Customized development consumes manpower, material resources, the development cycle is too long."Tan said.In his view, there will be five trends in the future of service robotics: more anthropomorphic, more thoughtful, more specialized, more superhuman and more extensive.
Only when the commercial applications of robots become more and more mature, can China's service robot industry grow stronger.So what is the market space for commercial service robots?Zhang Jingbing IDC global robotics research director, a thorough analysis of the development of the world, especially in the asia-pacific robot market present situation and trend, and share the IDC's latest research results, including 10 application scenario for the future intelligent robot and its market prospects.
IDC estimates that the global market for commercial service robots in healthcare, retail wholesale, public utilities and transportation will reach $17 billion by 2020.China, as the world's largest sub-market, will contribute major increments over the next few years.In view of the robot related service consumption covers application management, education and training, hardware deploy, system integration and consulting, its total to $2021 will exceed 2021 RMB ($128.3 billion).
Earlier this year, IDC conducted a global survey of technology investment priorities for end-user enterprises in the world, covering areas including manufacturing, healthcare, retail, public utilities, and government.The results show that the top three technology investment priority areas of the survey are robot, mobile technology and network security.
"The research and development of Chinese robots is developing rapidly.In terms of artificial intelligence, a report by the White House technology policy department shows that in 2014, China published more papers on deep learning technology than the United States.In terms of citations for publication, Chinese technology workers have published data that surpassed the us in 2014.China's artificial intelligence technology and the robot market are in a more advanced state."Said zhang jingbing.
From the perspective of the commercial service robot, the future of the intelligent robot is limitless, zhang said.Precision assembly, wisdom, logistics, intelligent household, health care, logistics sorting, shopping assistant, assistant of the hotel assistant, assistant education, home economics, security inspection ten major application fields such as worthy of attention.
Coworth robot chairman assistant gao xiang discusses the future commercialization trend of service robot with the theme of "service robot commercialization thinking".AI, he thought, brought infinite possibility to artificial intelligence and service robots in the next five years the market average annual compound growth rate of 16.19%, to 2021, global service robots the size of the market will be $83 billion.
Chinese companies are expected to have a strong demand for robotic applications, and the commercial market will see explosive growth in the coming years, according to experts at the conference.In this context, more and more companies will start to layout the commercial service robot, to continuous research and development and production of the technology and products, greatly reduces the barriers to the price of the commercial service robot, formed a relatively rich product line, on the supply side to the outbreak of the commercial service robots.
