news and markets “What do you expect from the Chinese automation market in the next years?” China remains one of the world’s fastest growing economies and the fastest growing market for manufacturing. China has also experienced double-digit growth in many segments of automation. The Data from National Bureau of Statistics showed: the main business revenue of enterprises in industrial automatic control system equipment manufacturing industry was CNY 0.1997 billion in 2011, CNY 0.2450 billion in 2012, and up to CNY 0.2686 billion by the end of November 2013, which exceeded the total of 2012. Industrial automation industry has become one of the driving forces to promote rapid growth of economy in China. With the industrial transformation of China, more and more largescale equipment require a control system with higher precision, which means there will be more high-end products in the market in future. For the purpose of precision, labor cost control and real-time on site operation, there will be more robotic applications. The Chinese government keeps supporting high-tech industries and cultivating new economic growth area, the technology of domestic brands has been substantially increased and local suppliers are confident to compete with foreign technologies in some automation segments now. The R&D and production target are highly based on customer needs, which could lead to polarization of automation products: one side are highly precise or customized control systems, the other side are standardized products for low-end users. Market for mid-end products is shrinking and system integration is playing a more important role. John Jiang, Managing Director, Lapp Kabel Shanghai Co. Ltd.

news and markets For Harting, the Chinese automation market will represent one of the major growth markets also in the future. At the same time, we can see that the market is in a transition phase. If, in the past, it was characterised by a rather conservative approach in terms of connectivity, which became visible in the high demand for classic board-to-board connectivity, today it features not only innovative backplane solutions but also mezzanine connectors. Also in China, decentralisation further asserts itself through ethernet communication. To this purpose, automation profiles are used. Interestingly enough, a large number of profiles is required - not just regional ones - in addition to CC-Link, also Ethernet IP, Profinet or EtherCAT. Among market players, it is the globally established automation manufacturers who make decisions regarding connectivity also at a local level, as well as an increasing number of Chinese manufacturers. For us, a very special highlight is represented by the fact that we have fitted with har-flex the internal connection between two PCBs in the HMI of a renowned Chinese manufacturer. Thus we will be continuing our growth path in China.
