On December 9, the “2021 Lingnan Science Forum Series Activities”-Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area Artificial Intelligence and Robot Conference was held in Nanhai District, Foshan City. At this conference, participating experts and scholars released the “Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area Artificial Intelligence and Robot Industry Research Report” (hereinafter referred to as the Industry Report) and the “Intelligent Robot Industry Intellectual Property Layout and Risk Analysis Report” (hereinafter referred to as the Analysis Report).

The industry report pointed out that according to IFR statistics, in 2020, the scale of China’s robotics industry has exceeded 100 billion yuan. Among them, China’s industrial robot market is booming, ranking first in the world for eight consecutive years. According to data from the National Bureau of Statistics, from 2016 to 2020, the output of China’s industrial robots increased rapidly from 72,000 sets to 212,000 sets, with an average annual growth rate of 31%. With the continuous release of intelligent demand in the medical, elderly care, education and other industries, service robots and special robots also have huge development potential. The industrial robot market is booming and has a relatively large market scale, and its proportion is increasing year by year. Service robots started late and are still in a stage of rapid development. The proportion of industrial robots for special tasks fluctuates and the application scenarios continue to expand. The system structure is gradually improving.

The industry report also pointed out that the robotics industry, as one of the top ten strategic emerging industrial clusters in Guangdong Province, has attracted much attention in recent years and has a good momentum of development. The robot industry in Guangdong Province has developed rapidly, with obvious industrial clusters, and excellent performance indicators for industrial robots and service robots.

According to the reporter’s understanding, Guangdong is a large province in the production and application of robots in the country, and one of the main gathering areas of the domestic robot industry. After years of technology accumulation and development, the robot industry has made considerable progress. The development of robot clusters has obvious advantages, and the scale of robot output value is The number of enterprises, the construction of industrial chains, the construction of industrial parks, personnel training, technology research and development, and promotion and application are all at the leading level in the country. In terms of the number of enterprises, the province has more than 100 provincial-level robotic backbone (cultivation) enterprises, and the products continue to be enriched. From the perspective of regional distribution, the province’s intelligent robot industry is mainly concentrated in the Pearl River Delta region. There are 11 cities in the province that have an intelligent robot industry, and the industry is mainly concentrated in Shenzhen, Dongguan, Huizhou, Foshan, Guangzhou and other places.

As far as Guangdong Province is concerned, it is very prominent in terms of industrial robots and service robot data. In terms of the scale of output value, Guangdong Province has a solid foundation and rapid development. It is the most powerful robot industry base in my country. In 2019, the total output value of the service robot industry accounted for 33.5% of the country, and its performance was very impressive. According to Tianyan Check data, as of December 31, 2019, the service robot companies in Guangdong Province ranked first in the country, accounting for 56.31%.

In the first half of 2020, the growth rate of Guangdong’s advanced manufacturing and high-tech manufacturing is higher than the overall industrial level. Among them, industrial robots and service robots increased by 24.3% and 18.0% respectively. From January to October 2020, the output of industrial robots in Guangdong Province accounted for 29.1% of the country’s total, ranking first in the country. From January to August 2021, the output of some high-tech products in Guangdong Province increased rapidly, of which industrial robots increased by 74.6%.

The analysis report pointed out the status quo of intellectual property rights of intelligent robot enterprises in Guangdong Province and the problems in their rights protection assistance. At the same time, it put forward suggestions on protection assistance measures, including: strengthening the construction of corporate rights protection capabilities; strengthening the construction of government public welfare rights protection assistance institutions.

The conference was guided by Guangdong Science and Technology Association, Guangdong Science and Technology Department, hosted by Guangdong Robotics Association, and hosted by Foshan Intelligent Equipment Technology Research Institute and Guangdong Science and Technology Journalists Association.
