On 21 Dec. 2021, China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and other 14 departments jointly issued the “14th Five-Year Plan for the Robotics Industry” (hereinafter “the Plan”, “十四五”机器人产业发展规划), which covers the period from 2021-2025.

According to the Plan, in 2020, China's robotics industry's operating income exceeded CNY 100 billion, while the output of industrial robots increased to 212,000 sets. Moreover, China's robot density in the manufacturing industry reached 246 sets per 10,000 people, nearly twice that of the global average.

Under the Plan, by 2025, China’s robotics industry is set to become a global center of technology innovation, high-end manufacturing, and integrated applications. Under such goal, the annual growth rate of the robot industrial revenue is expected to exceed 20 percent and the current intensity of industrial robots to be doubled.
