From its old position as the world's factory, China is undergoing profound changes to reshape its manufacturing sector.

As the demand for manufacturing automation is growing, it is China that primarily drives demand. With just under 15% of global GDP credited towards China, it accounts for more than double that amount of demand for automation technology. Nearly 1/3 of all manufacturing automation demand is expected to come from China, which is expected to have a 21% compounded annual robotic growth rate, an HSBC report points out. Around the globe, there is an average of 69 robots per 10,000 workers. By 2020 there are projected to be 150 robots per 10,000 workers, nearly tripling the current standard and displaying almost a 3x growth rate. Nearly 1/3 of all robotic demand is coming from China.

During this conference we will discuss about the following topics:

  • China Manufacturing Outlook.
  • Made in China 2025, AI leadership by 2030, and other efforts to develop Industry 4.0 capabilities and products.
  • Impacts and opportunities for multinational companies on mainland China.

This conference provides a unique environment to exchange ideas, knowledge and best practices. It also provides opportunities to build new relationships and strengthen existing ones. Participants will gain insights for strategic planning with a forward look at China's published plans and realistic pathways to support future growth and competitiveness.

Together with the European Chamber of Commerce, Shanghai, BenCham invites you to the China Investment Conference: Manufacturing Leadership & the Factory of the Future. We look forward to welcoming you.
