Global and China AGV (Automated Guided Vehicle/ Mobile Robot) Industry Report, 2017-2021

Global and China AGV (Automated Guided Vehicle/ Mobile Robot) Industry Report, 2017-2021

In 2016, global AGV sales surged by 38.8% from a year earlier to 22,600 units thanks to favorable policies including industry 4.0 and intelligent automation and more use of AGV for e-commerce; China saw a substantial rise of 88.5% YoY in AGV sales to 9,950 units. It is expected that China’s AGV sales will grow at an average annual rate of 43.0% during 2017-2021, achieving 61,000 units in 2021.

Production logistics including automobile and home appliance manufacturing still has the largest and steady demand for AGV in China, with a share of around 55% in the country’s total demand for AGV in 2016, but poses higher requirements on intelligent automation of AGV products; warehousing logistics like ecommerce witnesses soaring demand for AGV, occupying roughly 29% of the total in 2016 and expectedly up to 32% in 2021.

In the Chinese AGV market in 2016, domestic companies grabbed an 85% share in total sales, and foreign peers 15%. In fact, the foreign players such as JBT, Egemin, Rocla, Swisslog, Daifuku and Meidensha, dominated the high-end market; the low- and middle-end markets were taken up by Chinese brands, e.g., Siasun, KSEC Intelligent Equipment, Machinery Technology Development and Sanfeng Intelligent Conveying Equipment.

At present, dependence on imported AGV core parts like laser navigation, motor and control system still constitutes one of the key impediments to expansion of China’s AGV market. In recent years, Chinese manufacturers intensified development and research of AGV, sparing no effort to advance localization of core parts. Thereof, Siasun and KSEC Intelligent Equipment self-developed AGV control systems; GreatStar Industrial and CSG Smart Science & Technology were stepping up manufacture of their own laser sensors for AGV to improve market competence.

Additionally, restricted by technology, AGC products are in the majority in Chinese AGV market, making up around 43% in 2016; AGVs with heavy load and linkage will be key products in China’s AGV industry layout, according to the Development Plan for China Robotics Industry (2016-2020).
