More and more domestic enterprises began to look AGV extended to overseas, Europe, Japan, Korea and Southeast Asia is becoming a major development direction of domestic AGV business. However, different national conditions, domestic AGV want to win overseas markets need to understand the needs of each region AGV market focus, then, Xiao Bian gave you sum up the different characteristics of the three major overseas markets.
European market: high-yield high standards, the depth of the European and American markets get customized, Western AGV produced mainly in the form of a large assembly of members, the overall appearance is more cumbersome, but with most of all is that they can be adapted to complex path planning and various production processes, and therefore may be used in various handling properties. The European and American market, the biggest feature is that the AGV industry, mainly tend to the depth of customization, automation system project on the market are usually done by several enterprises CONTROL ENGINEERING China Copyright , divide their profits. China as the world’s factory, domestic enterprises AGV already has served various types of plants, extensive experience in non-standard product design and production, specializes in the depth of customization. In addition, Europe’s high labor costs, a large logistics systems in developed countries of Europe and other areas of demand for automation, acceptance is higher, which has laid a good foundation for the domestic into the AGV Europe. Compared with Europe and the AGV business, thanks to lower domestic labor costs, the price advantage of domestic enterprises is relatively obvious AGV, AGV is favorable domestic conditions into the European market. Previously domestic exports less AGV projects in Europe, there is also a part of the main reason is that strict EU standards allow enterprises to stay away. Domestic AGV application is officially landed in 1992, while in the United States, AGV early 70s began large-scale applications, but in the accumulation of AGV products and application technology in a long time, and now the country’s AGV technology has matured, the product can reach international market standards, the gap with foreign products is still being pulled small, and some have even catch up. Faced with such huge profits, the development of regional and European markets has become many domestic enterprises AGV, AGV in recent years, domestic companies competing to get “CE” certification in Europe and America market access proved to enhance the right to speak products, such as country since 2016 began to expand its business segments in the United States, Yi Jiwei also had success in hand, Europe’s largest consumer electronics and electricalManufacturer Turkish VESTEL.
Japanese and Korean markets: labor shortages, logistics equipment to high-end market transformation As for Japan and South Korea, Japan, for example. Japan’s leading high-end light industry, such as electronics and other technology industry accounted for half of the industry, and therefore the demand for the Japanese AGV is simple but functional to meet the needs and relatively low cost. They feel that the most practical, what the market needs is the best, that’s what they do market purpose. Electricity supplier logistics accompanied by strong demand, Japan’s growing demand for modern warehouse, a sharp increase in the number of modern warehouse, warehouse facing the old traditional transformation problem. Japan and Japan to build houses in transition from traditional to modern warehouse buildings, completed in the year 2017 using the storage area of 9.66 million square meters, an increase of 15% over the previous year. Another Fuji economic statistics show that by 2025, Japan’s new generation logistics systems and services market (including Japanese companies overseas performance) of about 3.9 trillion yen (100 yen about 6.34 yuan), an increase of 89.1 over 2017 %. CONTROL ENGINEERING China Copyright , the Japanese electricity supplier market is expanding labor shortage can not be resolved at the same time, the demand for automation is increasing. Thanks to the Japanese industrial scene and their ability to convert their outstanding performance in the AGC. Currently, the market is still active in the AGC relatively large number of Japanese companies, but in the AGV market is difficult to see their shadows, on the one hand scenarios features contributed to the development of Japan’s own characteristics AGC, but it also restricts Japan entered the high-end AGV field. But the future use of the AGC will be limited by the times, businesses need more than just a simple porter, but requires a logistics system experts with intelligent, able to accept a series of high-level response patterns disposal, remote monitoring, feedback, etc. . These smart AGC live by no means competent in the field of domestic AGV rapid development, coupled with China is the first to usher in the first year of opening 5G, 5G technology in the largest broadband and low-latency, highly intelligent AGV more Japanese companies can meet the changing needs of iterations. In fact, many look for business opportunities in Japan and South Korea the domestic labor shortages automatic handling robot business. As early as 2017, a very intellectual Kerry (Geek +) to enter Japan, which was introduced in Japan AGV large garment enterprises, and in 2019Japan continued to maintain market share in the first. Fast warehouse also set up a sales company in Japan –Quicktron Japan. In addition, in July this year, animal husbandry Star intelligence also signed a cooperation agreement with South Korea logistics integrators New World, the two sides also signed the South Korean giant supermarket chain E-Mart’s purchase agreement Everyday intelligent logistics center project, it will be easy to buy in its most advanced the logistics center to deploy hundreds of animal husbandry star intelligent robots. Southeast Asian markets: logistics systems dividend period, the price war waged outside of Japan and South Korea, Southeast Asia and China’s industrial development path similar and adjacent areas, is known as one of the “World’s Workbench”, a lot of low-tech products from here the production of exports. Southeast Asia in recent years the trend gradually replace low-skilled manufacturing robots work appeared, although the Southeast Asian market is still labor-intensive enterprises, low labor costs, but the productivity of workers in Southeast Asia is not high CONTROL ENGINEERING China All Rights Reserved , and therefore the current one AGV companies pay greater attention to overseas markets. Looking at the entire Southeast Asia Control Engineering Copyright , and currently can not find a complete logistics system, even in developed countries, Singapore as well. By 2018, Southeast Asia’s logistics system only covers most of the second-tier cities , has not spread to all-round. Logistics market of the whole region is in the rising dividend period. Among them, a new song-based AGV head of domestic enterprises currently working to expand the Southeast Asian market, the overseas market it as an important area. In addition to the new song, there are a number of the company’s products have applications, including Queensland boat, the country from the robot, a very intellectual Kerry, wellhead, Yi Jiwei, etc. in Southeast Asia.
However, because of the influx of more and more players AGV market in Southeast Asia, so many startups AGV (under peer technology and does not differ too much in case) can only compete on price in order to enhance their competitiveness. And as the purchasing power and consumption levels are not very high in Southeast Asia, it seems that the price war is more accepted by the public, after all, who does not like a lower price to buy the same services? However, many start-up companies and does not have sufficient funds to support their price war, burning the money some time in the future, seek investment seems to be their only way out. In fact, in addition to Europe, America, Japan, Korea and SoutheastThese large Asian market, in other countries, we could see domestic companies figure AGV, set up branch offices, or find agents working with local integrators, these companies are industry head through various channels to business expand to a larger scale. We are pleased to see the domestic AGV business to a broader stage, but various countries and regions the situation is different, when going out of domestic enterprises from the product to the customer must take full account of the needs of “localization”, in order to go far same time go better.
