This research delves into the investment and financing landscape of the Chinese robotics industry, exploring its development across technological, capital, and policy dimensions. The classification of robots, which includes upstream components, midstream body manufacturing and system integration, and downstream applications, provides a comprehensive framework. Analysis reveals a concentration of investment events in downstream applications, with a notable increase in financing scale and the number of events in recent years. Urban distribution highlights major cities that are attracting significant investments, reflecting the geographical dynamics of the industry. The examination of investment rounds, currency distribution, and financing amounts sheds light on the industry's macroeconomic perspective. Detailed segmentation into upstream, midstream, and downstream sectors reveals distinct trends and funding preferences. Notably, the service robot sector emerges as a capital magnet, especially in medical and specialized applications. The study concludes with a forward-looking perspective, emphasizing the pivotal role of technology, capital, and policies in shaping the future trajectory of the Chinese robotics industry.
