Industrial automation control is abbreviated as industrial control, which mainly uses electrical means, machinery and software combinations to automate and efficiently control the manufacturing process and factory production.
With the continuous development of a new generation of new technologies such as artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things, the trend of industrial automation and intelligence is very clear, so many related industries have benefited from it. In recent years, the overall market size of the global industrial automatic control system manufacturing equipment industry has shown a steady growth trend every year. In 2019, the industry value of global industrial automation equipment control systems reached 168 billion U.S. dollars, with an annual growth rate of 5%. Affected by global public health events in 2020, the global industrial automatic control system will be affected to a certain extent. In China, the market size of the industrial automatic control system device manufacturing industry is also on the rise. The market size has increased from 139 billion yuan in 2015 to 186.5 billion yuan.
The Industry Is Mainly Based on Feedback Systems, Motion Systems, And Control Systems
In 2019, in the global industrial automatic control system device manufacturing industry structure, feedback systems, motion systems, and drive systems ranked top three, accounting for 23%, 20%, and 19% respectively. Data show that in 2019, the market size of the three was 38.6 billion U.S. dollars, 33.6 billion U.S. dollars, and 31.9 billion U.S. dollars.
Motion control is one of the main scenarios in modern manufacturing. As the main component of motion control, the servo system has high control accuracy and fast response speed, and is widely used. The downstream servo is mainly advanced manufacturing, including electronic and semiconductor manufacturing equipment, machine tools, industrial robots, lithium batteries, etc. Data shows that the servo system market reached 12.1 billion yuan in 2019, an increase of 0.83% year-on-year.
DCS is a typical control system form, it occupies an important position in the automation control industry, and has become an indispensable tool in modern industry, mainly used in chemical, petrochemical and electric power industries. In recent years, the scale of China's DCS market has continued to grow steadily. In 2019, the market size reached 8.743 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 7.17%. It is estimated that by 2022, the market size will exceed 9 billion yuan.
As a large-scale manufacturing country, there is still a big gap between China's industrial level and the major developed countries, and the need for upgrading traditional manufacturing is obvious. On the one hand, the production environment of many industries is not conducive to manual operation and is dangerous. The trend of replacing manual work with automation will continue to deepen. On the other hand, the use of automated manufacturing methods can ensure the unity of products, improve production efficiency, and effectively reduce production costs. Driven by the international environment and national policies, and the manufacturing industry continues to expand and consolidate, the industrial control industry has achieved rapid growth. "Made in China 2025" clarifies that smart manufacturing is the main direction for the transformation and upgrading of China's manufacturing industry.
Demographic Dividend Disappears, Automation Advantage Is Highlighted
In the 1970s and 1980s, Japan's demographic dividend began to disappear, and Japan's demand for automation increased significantly. Data show that from 1980 to 1990, the sales of Japanese industrial robots increased rapidly, from 18,239 sets in 1980 to 67,514 sets in 1990.
In China, with sustained strong economic growth and rising income levels of residents, the demographic dividend has gradually weakened and labor costs have risen. Public data shows that the average salary of employees in urban units in 2019 is 90,501 yuan, an increase of 9.81% over 2018. The changes in the demographic structure and rising labor costs have further increased the degree of automation in the manufacturing industry, and it is more economical for manufacturing automation to replace labor. Highlight.
Emerging Industries Have Strong Development Momentum and Broad Industry Prospects
The downstream application industry is developing well, and emerging industries such as new energy vehicles and robotics continue to maintain a good growth momentum, and the automation market demand is gradually picking up. New industries represented by new energy vehicles, integrated circuits and robotics industries have greatly increased the additional costs of industries that exceed the designated scale of the country. Public data shows that in December 2020, the added value of industrial enterprises above designated size increased by 7.3% year-on-year in real terms, and the added value of industrial enterprises above designated size increased by 2.8% over the previous year. Among them, new energy vehicles increased by 17.3% for the whole year, industrial robots increased by 19.1%, and integrated circuits increased by 16.2%.
On the whole, the overall development of China’s industrial automatic control industry is relatively fast. Chinese companies have combined their local advantages and followed the trend to gradually increase their market share, and import substitution has accelerated. From 2010 to 2018, the market share of Chinese companies in the industrial control industry It has grown from 27.1% to 35.7%, and even in some subdivisions, Chinese brands are already in a leading position in the world.
The global industrial automatic control industry pattern is relatively stable. International giants represented by Emerson in the United States, ABB in Switzerland, and Siemens in Germany have occupied major global markets. In China, most industrial control companies focused on a certain market segment in the early days. After years of hard work in the industry, a large amount of accumulation in production technology and operation has been completed, and the production line has been expanding day by day, and a comprehensive large-scale industrial control enterprise has begun to form, which not only leads the upgrade of the industry, but also promotes the overall development of China's intelligent manufacturing.
Throughout the world, the development and formation of manufacturing powers will inevitably be inseparable from outstanding industrial control giants as strong support. With the complexity of the international situation and the urgency, the Chinese manufacturing industry urgently needs to change the situation of large but not strong, where Chinese industrial control brands usher in a historical opportunity.
