Since 2013, China has been the world’s largest market for industrial robots. Despite the gradual maturity of the industrial robot system, the lagging R&D and backward technology level of industrial robots have led to a strong dependence on the import of core components and key technologies, which to a certain extent has restricted the development and improvement of industrial robots. At present, the “neck problem” in the field of industrial robots in China is not only in the reducer, controller, and servo but also in the basic processing equipment, basic technology, and basic materials. In this paper, we propose measures to improve the “neck problem” of industrial robots to promote the high-quality development of industrial robots in China.
