The event will also feature opening remarks from Amy Antenora, Editor of aftermarketNews. She will provide insights on the US automotive industry and Taiwan’s contribution.
In spite of Covid, the growth of the US automotive aftermarket is skyrocketing, and is expected to exceed US $448 billion by 2025 according to ResearchandMarkets. The US has become the largest market for Taiwan’s automotive parts, accounting for more than 40% of the country’s exports. The main exports include car lights, tires, and other items such as suspension and transmission systems.
“Taiwan’s auto-parts industry has leveraged small size into big output. They have invested heavily in automation and today excel in rapid prototyping and produce small batch orders on demand in less time and at competitive prices compared to the competition,” said Mr. C. K. Wu, executive vice president, Taiwan Transportation Vehicle Manufacturers Association. “But even more important is the industry’s commitment to innovation and investment.
