Promoting the Leaping Development of Robotics

Wang Ruixiang, President of the China Machinery Industry Federation (CMIF), mentioned at the China International Summit of Robotics Industry in July of this year that R&D, manufacturing and applications of robots had become the yardsticks of the strengths in technology innovation and high-end manufacturing of a country.

The Robotics industry is an important division of national strategy with developed technologies and broad markets in main economies, such as US, Europe, Japan and Korea. In addition, China has listed high-end equipment manufacturing involving robots as one of its important strategic emerging industries.

In recent years, robotics industry and its applications have been booming in all areas. The China International Robot Show (CIROS) jointly hosted by China Machinery Industry Federation (CMIF), China Robot Industry Alliance (CRIA) and CMEPO Exhibition Co., Ltd. (CMEPO), is a professional exhibition on robotics in the global environment.

High-Profile Exhibition

As a high-profile exhibition involving all disciplines, especially in the global robotics industries since its establishment in 2012, CIROS grows by a yearly rise of 40% in exhibition space after three years of successful achievements. It receives high attention and support from global robot suppliers and is supported by the International Federation of Robotics (IFR).

With its global renowned exhibitors including ABB, KUKA, FANUC, NACHI, YASKAWA, KAWASAKI, STAUBLI, ADEPT, Shenyang SIASUN, Guangzhou GSK, Anhui EFORT, Nanjing ESTUN, CIROS has become an important annual event of the domestic robotics industry.

China International Robot Show (CIROS)


The following reasons explain the extensive attention for CIROS:

  • R&D, manufacturing and applications of robots in domestic manufacturing grow rapidly. According to statistics by IFR and CRIA, the global sales volume of robots increased by 12% over the previous year, while the sales volume of robots in Asia increased by 18%. The Chinese market stood out with the sale of 20% in the global robots market.

    The total sales volume of industrial robots in China in 2013 increased by approximately 40% compared to last year causing the annual sales of industrial robots in China rank in the worldwide top.
  • Unlike other exhibitions, CIROS is an exhibition covering the complete industrial chains regarding industrial robots, service robots and specialized robots. It has turned into a multi-disciplinary robot show involving new technologies and new products of service robots with updated concepts from China, Korea, Japan and Taiwan.
  • As the organizer of CIROS, the CMIF boasts an incomparable influence in manufacturing in China. Established on April 21, 2013, the CRIA, being an authoritative organization of the robotics industry in China, covers the backbones of domestic robot enterprises and main research institutes.

    CIROS cooperates with the IFR, VDMA, RIA, JARA, KAR and TAIROA, while establishing connections with organizations in France, India and Russia.
  • As a crucial communication platform of the robotics industry in China, CIROS combines exhibitions with summits. Every year global experts, scholars and entrepreneurs attend summits and Round-Table meetings, discuss the development and applications of the worldwide robotics industry, releases research achievements and analyzes policies.

Supported By IFR

In the mean time, CIROS is the only exhibition supported by the IFR in China, while greatly supported by KAR, JARA and TAIROA.

CIROS2015 will be held in the National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai), being the newest and biggest robotic exhibition in China, with an exhibition space of 28,000m2 and expected visitors of 50,000. Therefore CIROS definitely becomes the most authoritative and influential exhibition of robots in China.

Currently robots play an extremely significant role in which the new industrial reform is developing worldwide. Experts believe that robot reform will bring the market trillions of dollars in value. Employing robots in pursuit of upgrading the industries in China and the transformation of manufacturing processes is an inevitable course for manufacturing in China.

CIROS is supposed to take the historical responsibilities of promoting the leaping development of domestic robotics and leading the  transformation of manufacturing in China.
