Lithium industry automation status and industrial robot opportunities
From the perspective of China's automation market, the automotive market has long been the main application industry for automation. A large number of advanced equipment represented by industrial robots are widely used in automotive stamping, welding, painting, and assembly processes. With the addition of new production lines in the domestic automotive market With the atrophy and stagnation, the majority of automation companies have gradually shifted their perspective to the electronics industry.
The electronics industry, represented by smart phones, is another engine that leads the growth of the automation market. Consumer terminal products represented by smart phones have driven the growth of automation requirements such as semiconductors, printed circuit boards, panels, and terminal assembly. By 2017, shipments of smartphone terminals have been approaching zero growth. As the market becomes more saturated, automation of related industries will also be reduced. With regard to automation opportunities in the future, the market is actively looking for new growth opportunities.
The new energy automobile industry as the country's key supporting industry, the industry generally believes that it will continue to grow rapidly in the next few years, lithium battery as a source of new energy vehicles, will enjoy the new energy vehicle market growth dividends, have access to smart phones, become the next A wave of automation in key applications.
