China will launch the first production line for robots

In September 2014, the Xinsong robotics company in Shenyang, Liaoning province (Northeast China) will launch the first digital robotic line capable of producing 5 industrial robots annually, Xinhua news agency reported.

In 2013, a total of 37 of thousands of industrial robots were sold in China, which made up almost 20 percent of the world index and allowed China to take the first place in the world in terms of robotics sales, displacing Japan.

According to the chairman of the China Robotics Association, President of Xinsong Company Qu Daokui, if in the past robotics in China was used only in the automotive industry, electronics and other high-tech industries, today it is also used in traditional industries, including metal processing, food production and drinks.

In 2013, Chinese businesses sold over 9500 industrial robots in the country, up 65,5 percent from the previous year. In the first half of this year, Xinsong's orders increased by over 70 percent.

Experts predict great prospects for China's robotics market and an increase of more than 30 percent annually.
