The development trend of China's logistics automation equipment subdivision industry


1. System integration

The planning and design of the logistics system integration scheme is the most profitable part of the logistics automation equipment industry. Many hardware equipment manufacturers have developed in the direction of system integration. Expand from shelf business to storage integration business. In the era of smart logistics, enterprises use many automated logistics equipment and need an integrated system to control all kinds of equipment. With the advancement of smart logistics and the deepening of unmanned development, the demand for pallet-type automatic warehouses and automatic conveying and sorting systems is prominent, and more flexible equipment system integration capabilities such as shuttle systems and AGV robots have attracted much attention.

2. Software development

Develop software based on emerging technologies of the Internet of Things and cloud computing to support the operation of super-large logistics systems. Various types of automated logistics equipment software and logistics management software have become the focus of R&D investment by system integrators; start-up software developers with outstanding advantages have become the key objects of cooperation or acquisition by system integrators.

3. Logistics robots and AGV robots AGV products are gradually integrated into new navigation technologies, the mobility and obstacle avoidance capabilities of AGV products have been greatly improved, and the applications of various mobile robots, palletizing, sorting and other logistics robots are becoming more and more popular. It is mainly used in scenarios with handling requirements, such as the automotive industry, 3C electronics, tobacco, and logistics, which are industries where mobile robots are widely used and have broad prospects.

4. Automatic conveying and sorting equipment

The application is gradually developing in the direction of modularization and standardization. Modularization is conducive to helping enterprises to achieve rapid installation and debugging; standardization is conducive to reducing product production costs and maintenance costs. The secondary and tertiary express outlets of express companies have an increasing demand for automatic conveying and sorting equipment that is cost-effective, durable, and easy for personnel to maintain.

The focus of commercial distribution and logistics has shifted from the warehousing center to the distribution and sorting center. The Chinese market has cultivated a number of logistics equipment such as Xuster, Zhengfei Technology, and CIMC Tianda Logistics Equipment with integrated solutions for conveying and sorting systems, key equipment, and core components. technology business.

5. Forklift

The growth rate of product exports is higher than that of domestic sales; the proportion of electric forklifts has increased, driven by environmental protection policies and cost control factors, and walk-through storage forklifts have grown rapidly; AGV forklifts have become a new bright spot in the forklift industry.

In 2019, the market demand for forklifts is sluggish, and there is a lot of pressure on the low-end products produced by local forklift companies. China currently has Kunchuan, Xinsong and Hangcha with AGV forklift production capacity, but Kunchuan and Xinsong both need to purchase forklifts from foreign-funded enterprises, and then convert them into AGV forklift products with automatic driving functions, and the production cost is relatively high.
