China is aiming for half of the industrial robots sold in the country to be made by Chinese companies by 2020, up from 27% currently, and with a target for this to increase to 70% by 2025.


Since 2013, China has become the number one market for industrial robots in the world, with demand expected to increase by 20% in the next two years. To be sure, there is ample scope for an increase in industrial robotics – China has just 36 robots per 10,000 manufacturing workers, compared with 292 in Germany, 314 in Japan and 478 in South Korea.
