Undoubtedly, warehousing robots in the past two years have been the sweet pastry of the robot market in the past two years and are extremely hot. However, everything has its prosperity and its decline. The past two years can be said to be the heyday of storage robots. Then, can it continue to be popular in the future? Can you stand out in the fierce market competition and keep going up?
It is understood that in 2016, the e-commerce market has expanded day by day, and the demand for AGVs in warehousing logistics robots has also increased. The market for logistics warehousing system application robots has grown significantly, especially the demand for AGVs in e-commerce. Statistics from the New Strategic Robot Industry Research Institute: In 2016, the sales volume of e-commerce warehousing robots was about 2,000 units, and it is expected to increase to about 5,000 units by 2017. Obviously, with the increasing popularity and rapid development of AGV, it has quickly become a new economic growth point in the industry, and an unprecedented intelligent revolution in warehousing and logistics is slowly coming.
With the continuous improvement of modern warehouse management systems, companies have adopted a large number of AGVs to replace traditional manual forklifts, which can save costs and improve efficiency. There is no need to do the work that can be done with AGV. We can spend more time to innovate, and we can also have more time to take vacations and enjoy life.
As we all know, 2014 was a turning point for warehousing robots. Since Amazon acquired Kiva, it has opened the curtain of warehousing robots. More and more robot companies have begun to get involved in the field of intelligent logistics. Among them, there are many outstanding ones, such as Jizhijia. , Hikvision, etc. The tide has risen all the way, showing an explosive growth trend.
Many people joked that 2016 was the first year of domestic warehousing robots. In the past year, foreign investment, aging labor, and omni-channel demand have greatly promoted the increase in the use of warehousing robots. In the field of smart logistics, it has demonstrated its incomparable superiority: not only reducing the time and error from order to delivery and the need for reverse logistics, but also more preventive maintenance measures-reducing labor burden and reducing manufacturers The transportation method between the distribution center and the distribution center delays the delivery outside the traditional time, and also demonstrates its better and faster processing capabilities through the Internet of Things.
The reason why storage robots can quickly become a rookie in the industry is not lack of market opportunities, but more importantly, their efficient and fast market efficiency. It perfectly replaces labor, not only reduces labor, but also improves work efficiency. In an enterprise that has realized industrial automation, when you need to move a certain object, you only need to issue an instruction, and the palletizing robot will take the workpiece out of the warehouse and hand it to the AGV (automatic handling robot). The handling trolley is sent to the assembly line, and after being identified and judged by the smart camera, it is transported by the industrial robot to another assembly line and stacked.
Looking at the market trend in recent years, the smart warehousing e-commerce logistics market still has a vast space to be explored urgently. Both traditional logistics companies and modern e-commerce logistics companies are accelerating the exploration of smart logistics. With the formation of China’s opening-up pattern, the accelerated integration of the Internet and the logistics industry and the continuous advancement of the construction of Industry 4.0, the smart e-commerce warehousing and logistics industry, as an important part of the service chain, is now looking for sustainable development. New potential energy. Nowadays, whether it is in terms of policy, capital or technical factors, it is extremely conducive to the fast lane of the e-commerce warehousing and logistics industry. I believe that under the agitation of such market spring breeze, in the future, storage robot AGV will still have a lot to do.
