Analysis of market status and development prospects of China's automated three-dimensional warehouse industry


Analysis of the basic situation of the automatic three-dimensional library industry

The application of automated three-dimensional warehouses can effectively reduce land occupation and labor costs, and is a key factor in improving the efficiency of warehousing and logistics. The development of automated three-dimensional warehouses can effectively solve the situation that the warehousing industry occupies a large amount of land and manpower, and realize the automation and intelligence of warehousing, reduce warehousing operation and management costs and improve logistics efficiency.

Automation is an inevitable trend in the development of warehouse management. The operation efficiency of automated three-dimensional warehouses and the technical level of automation can greatly improve the logistics efficiency of enterprises, and the industry has great potential for development.

In recent years, the state has strengthened the management of land resources, and land resources have become increasingly tight, which has led to the continuous increase of land use costs, prompting enterprises to make full use of limited space and improve the utilization rate of existing land. The application of automated three-dimensional warehouses abandons the horizontal expansion mode of traditional warehouses and turns to three-dimensional expansion, which has higher land utilization and inventory volume ratio, and can reduce the land cost of enterprises.

1. Analysis of the development status of China's automated three-dimensional library industry

Automatic warehousing technology is a part of logistics equipment technology. In a narrow sense, automatic storage technology is an automatic three-dimensional warehouse (AS/RS), and in a broad sense, it also includes automatic conveying systems (including various conveyors, shuttles, AGVs, etc.), automatic picking and sorting systems, and automatic identification systems. Wait.

The market application of China's automatic storage technology has gone through a long process. At present, it has almost covered the main aspects of the national economy such as tobacco, medicine, retail, and machinery manufacturing. There are also new developments in the fields of aviation, finance and military. The demand for automated stereo library has promoted the rapid development.

From the perspective of the scale of three-dimensional storage, in recent years, with the further enhancement of the modern logistics concept of modern enterprises, the integrated development of automated three-dimensional warehouses and enterprise production systems has gradually matured. China's automated three-dimensional warehouse technology has made great progress, forming a multi-series, multi- Variety, multi-grade, cost-effective product line, can cover most application industries.

According to data from the Circulation Industry Development Department of the Ministry of Commerce, the area of three-dimensional warehouses nationwide increased from 140 million square meters at the end of 2012 to 274 million square meters in 2017. In 2017 and 2018, there were more than 800 new automated three-dimensional warehouses in my country. By the end of 2018, The national three-dimensional warehouse area is about 291 million square meters, and the number of holdings is about 5,000.

GGII data shows that in 2019, there are about 6,000 automated three-dimensional warehouses in China. According to the growth of the number of three-dimensional warehouses, it is predicted that the area of three-dimensional warehouses will reach 349 million cubic meters in 2019. Among them, the growth rate of demand in service fields such as e-commerce, express delivery, retail, and cold chain industries is significantly stronger than that in industrial manufacturing, and emerging industries such as clothing and new energy have also begun to exert force.

2. Analysis of the development advantages of automated stereoscopic library

The traditional warehouse is only a place for goods storage, and the preservation of goods is its only function, which is a kind of "static storage". The automated three-dimensional warehouse adopts advanced automatic material handling equipment, which not only enables the goods to be automatically stored in the warehouse as needed, but also can be organically connected with the production links outside the warehouse, and through the computer management system and automatic material handling equipment, the warehouse becomes a An important link in the production logistics of enterprises.

The basic starting point of the early three-dimensional warehouse concept is to improve space utilization and fully save limited and valuable land. At present, with the gradual deepening of the integration design of information technology and automated three-dimensional warehouses, the concept of improving space utilization has become more extensive and profound. The meaning has been linked to improving the level of inventory management, reducing labor costs, improving inventory backlog, and realizing the traceability of goods.

3. Analysis of the development prospects of China's automated stereoscopic library industry

As the concept of automated logistics and distribution begins to be recognized by more and more enterprises, and the continuous development of large-scale and intensive production of modern enterprises, the number of automated logistics system projects will continue to increase in the future, and automated three-dimensional warehouses will be more widely used. application, its status in the modern logistics system will continue to improve, and the market space will continue to increase or even grow exponentially.

The average annual growth rate from 2015 to 2020 is 11.7%. Taking into account the development trend of the industry and the current market supply and demand, it is expected that the average annual growth rate in the next five years will be 10%. In 2025, the area of automated three-dimensional warehouses nationwide will reach 620 million square meters. about.
