Golden age for industrial automation robots
Workforace shortage in Pearl River Delta region posied serious challenges for labour intensives. As a result, China's manufactruing industry is in an industrial transition, switching form labour intensive to intergrating automated technology into operations.
Backed by the Chinese goverment, the development of intelligent robots and other manufacutring equipment is expected to be a driving force for China's manufacturing industry. Based on the three-year atction plan on the Implementation of Restructuring and Upgrading of Industries of Guangdong Province, the People's Government of Guangdong Province plans to invest over USD 154 billion and transform the regin's manufactruing industry. Additionally, the International Federation of Robotics (IFR) predicts industrial robot installations in China to raise from 20,000 in 2014 to 40,000 in 2017.
Bright outlook for China's machine vision market
China's machine vision industry is currently focused on targeted industries, such as eletronics, semiconductors, drug testing and packaging, colour printing detections among others. With the Chinese government's "Made in China 2025" strategy, the county is slowing entering Industry 4.0 which calls for greener, efficient and more intelligent manufacturing. Technological advancements of the machine vision sector will continue to expand and become a crucial investiment for the nation's manufacturing industry.
