AAPEX – With the theme “Accelerating with Taiwan’s Best,” Taiwan Excellence – the symbol representing the best and most innovative Taiwanese products — is revving up to exhibit a multitude of technologically advanced automotive systems and components at AAPEX 2023, Oct. 31 – Nov. 2 at the Venetian Expo, Las Vegas. Located at Booth #J10224, the pavilion will feature 12 top Taiwan innovators in AI, Internet of Vehicles (IoV), automotive security, and EVs. Working as part of the automotive supply chain, these companies are helping to bring outstanding ideas for future vehicles to fruition and contributing to the evolution and future of the global automotive industry.
“Ingenuity in Motion: Accelerating with Taiwan’s Best”
At the Wednesday, November 1st product launch event at 2pm at the pavilion Booth #J10224, Taiwan Excellence will showcase four of these innovators: Chimei Motor, an automotive safety innovator, CUB, a Global leader in auto electrical parts, EverFocus, a smart transportation firm, and MiTAC Digital, Internet of Vehicles (IoV) pioneer. The Director of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Los Angeles, Mr. Michael Liou, will deliver opening remarks and a presentation entitled “Explore Taiwan-America’s Synergy on Automotive Ingenuity.”
According to Research and Markets, the growth of the US automotive aftermarket is skyrocketing, and is expected to exceed US $479 billion by 2027. This growth is being driven by increasing digitization, widespread electrification, and uptake of connectivity-enabled solutions. Today, the US has become the largest market for Taiwan’s automotive parts, accounting for more than 40% of the country’s exports.
