Development history of industrial automation
After more than 20 years of development, China's industrial automatic control system device manufacturing industry has made great progress, especially since the 1990s, the output of China's industrial automatic control system device manufacturing industry has maintained an annual growth of more than 20%. In 2011, China's industrial automatic control system device manufacturing industry has made remarkable achievements. The annual total industrial output value was 205.604 billion yuan; Product sales revenue was 199.673 billion yuan, up 24.66% year on year; The total profit was 20.284 billion yuan, up 28.74% year on year. Domestic automatic control systems have made breakthroughs in the fields of thermal power, chemical fertilizer and oil refining.
China's industrial automation market is mainly composed of hardware and software manufacturers, system integrators, product distributors, etc. In the field of software and hardware products, the middle and high-end markets are almost monopolized by foreign famous brand products, and this situation will still be maintained; In the field of system integration, multinational companies occupy the high-end of the manufacturing industry. Companies with deep industry background take the initiative in the system integration business of related industries. System integration companies with rich application experience are full of competitiveness.
In the industrial automation market, there is a mismatch between supply and demand. Customers need a complete electrical control system that can meet their own manufacturing process, while suppliers provide a variety of standardized device products. Different industries have great differences in electrical control, and even customers in the same industry have different needs due to different processes. This contradiction between supply and demand has created development space for the industrial automation industry.
China has the world's largest market for industrial automatic control system devices. Traditional industrial technology transformation, factory automation and enterprise informatization require a large number of industrial automation systems, and the market prospect is broad. Industrial control automation technology is developing towards intelligence, networking and integration. Based on the good development prospect of industrial automatic control, it is estimated that the market scale of industrial automatic control system device manufacturing industry will exceed 350 billion yuan in 2015.
With the increasing competition in the industrial automatic control system device manufacturing industry, mergers and acquisitions and capital operations among large industrial automatic control system device manufacturing enterprises are becoming increasingly frequent. Domestic excellent industrial automatic control system device manufacturing enterprises are paying more and more attention to the research on the industry market, especially the in-depth research on the industrial development environment and product buyers.
