The 14th China International Equipment Manufacturing Exposition (CIEME) is preparing to kick off in Shenyang, Liaoning province. Robotics are the main theme of this CIEME. Over 60 of the top robot manufacturers from all over the world are scheduled to attend the exhibition to show off their latest products.
China has become the world's largest robotic consumer market for the second consecutive year, according to recent statistics released by China Robot Industry Alliance (CRIA). Around 57,000 robots were sold in China last year accounting for 25 percent of global sales.
CRIA predicted that the total number of robots used in China's manufacturing industry in 2015 will keep growing rapidly. Under the national plan "Made in China 2025", designed to make China a world manufacturing powerhouse, the robotic industry has become more and more popular.
The industrial robot market is in automotives, electronics, and food industries around the country. The industry also has an effect on military innovations, aviation, medical equipment as well as metal works.
