According to data from iiMedia Research, the scale of China’s AI chip market in 2019 is about 11.55 billion yuan. Driven by the popularization of 5G commercial use, policies, and technology, AI chips are expected to be used in cloud computing, security, and consumer electronics. Robotics and other fields achieve large-scale commercial use, and the AI chip market is expected to reach 43.68 billion yuan in 2021. However, with the accelerated popularization of artificial intelligence technology, downstream application fields have higher and higher requirements for AI computing power and energy consumption. The bottleneck of traditional Von Neumann architecture chips has gradually emerged, and AI chip will develop towards the integration of storage and computing. iiMedia Consulting analysts believe that although the development prospects of the storage-computing integrated AI chip are widely recognized, the overall development is still in the initial stage. From the realization of the integrated design of computing and storage, to the implementation of technology, mass production, and large-scale commercial use, there is still a long stage. Companies that can take the lead in achieving technological and product breakthroughs will be more easily supported by capital, talent, and the market.
As the data of iiMedia Research showed, during the epidemic, the network enthusiasm of the intelligent manufacturing industry maintained a high level, showing strong growth potential. Intelligent manufacturing uses unmanned, intelligent technical support and product systems to help China ’s daily output of masks reach 100 million yuan; robots can not only help medical staff to relieve the pressure on hospital staff, but also help enterprises resume work and resume production while ensuring production safety and efficiency; The Industrial Cloud also has outstanding performance in assisting the supply and demand matching of epidemic-related materials, cloud office, and building an epidemic prevention and control system. According to Ai Media data, the network reputation of "smart manufacturing" during the epidemic period reached 78.5, and the performance of the intelligent manufacturing epidemic has established public confidence. Over 50% of netizens said that they have improved their attitudes to the industry's prospects. The strong vitality exhibited by intelligent manufacturing during the epidemic will accelerate the development of "Made in China" towards "Chinese Intelligent Manufacturing".
在政策、经济、技术、人口等因素的驱动下，服务机器人行业快速发展，并呈现出比比工业机器人更为广阔的市场空间。iiMedia Research(艾媒咨询)数据显示，预计到2020年，中国服务机器人年销售额将超过300亿元。扫地机器人在整个服务机器人市场是非常重要的一个细分领域，产品相对成熟，竞争也较为激烈。市场参与者包括新兴服务机器人公司、传统家电公司、互联网公司以及各种创业公司等，目前在国内主流电商平台上销售的智能扫地机器人品牌已近 200 个，其中头部品牌效应较为明显。石头科技作为专注于智能清洁机器人领域的科技企业，在小米集团的协助下快速发展，并于2017年开始推出自有品牌，为公司营收增长注入新动能。2018年石头科技营收30.5亿元，其中自有品牌贡献过半。虽然石头科技在业务发展方面有所调整，但想要完全脱离小米实现自主发展还需要时间。
Driven by factors such as policy, economy, technology and population, the service robot industry has developed rapidly and presents a broader market space than industrial robots. According to iiMedia Research, it is estimated that by 2020, the annual sales of service robots in China will exceed 30 billion yuan. Sweeping robots are a very important segment in the entire service robot market. The products are relatively mature and the competition is fierce. Market participants include emerging service robot companies, traditional home appliance companies, Internet companies, and various startup companies. Currently, there are nearly 200 smart sweeping robot brands sold on mainstream domestic e-commerce platforms, of which the head brand effect is more obvious. As a technology company specializing in intelligent cleaning robots, Roborock has developed rapidly with the assistance of Xiaomi Group. In 2017, it launched its own brand and injected new momentum into the company's revenue growth. In 2018, Roborock's revenue was 3.05 billion yuan, of which half of its own brands contributed. Although Roborock has made adjustments in its business development, it will take time to completely realize its independent development from Xiaomi.

随着人口红利消失、人口老龄化加速、劳动力成本持续攀升等问题日益趋严，利用机器替代人工的需求愈加强烈。与此同时，中国企业在服务机器人核心硬件以及AI软件技术方面取得了较大突破，与国外领先技术的差距不断缩小，一定程度上缓解了技术实现和生产成本的制约。在市场与技术的双向推动下，服务机器人行业快速发展，预计到 2020 年，中国服务机器人年销售额将超过 300 亿元。优必选的服务机器人产品遍布多个细分领域和应用场景，凭借自身的技术优势，快速渗透市场，并通过与国际巨头的合作，广泛提升品牌知名度。虽然优必选在服务机器人行业的地位不断被肯定，但它的发展依然面临低端产品同质化竞争严重、高端产品商业化进程慢的两难局面。
With the disappearance of the demographic dividend, the acceleration of population aging, and the continuous rise of labor costs, the demand for replacing human labor with machines has become more and more intense. At the same time, Chinese enterprises have made great breakthroughs in the core hardware and AI software technology of service robots, and the gap with foreign leading technologies has been narrowing, which has eased the constraints of technology implementation and production costs to a certain extent. Driven by both market and technology, the service robot industry has developed rapidly. It is estimated that the annual sales of service robots in China will exceed 30 billion yuan by 2020. UBTECH’s service robots are widely used in many sub-areas and application scenarios. With its own technological advantages, they can penetrate the market rapidly and enhance brand awareness through cooperation with international giants. Although the position of UBTECH in the service robot industry has been continuously affirmed, its development still faces the dilemma of serious homogenization competition of low-end products and slow commercialization process of high-end products.
