• Message from Chairman

      • First of all, I would like to express my heart-felt thanks to the government officials, member manufacturers and fellow friends for your supports and cares. It gives me the opportunity to serve the industry unremittingly for the next three years.

        In retrospect, when I took over the post of the Chairman 3 years ago, I had perceived that the market of domestic new vehicles was limited and the percentage of old cars age was higher than usual. It would be disadvantageous to the sound development of the auto industry. On the ground of that, I spare no efforts to call for the excise tax cuts of trade-in for old cars and motorcycles. Finally, the third reading of excise tax regulations amendment was passed in the Legislative Yuan at the end of 2015. Thanks to the government's policy for old cars elimination, the sales of domestic cars reached 439,600 units in 2016. It is not only the highest record ever in 11 years, but also extends the booming cycle of auto industry for 10 years in average. Domestic sales of motorcycles are expected to reach over 950,000 units in 2017, a record high in 20 years. As for the export of bicycles, it has developed toward high value. The average unit price of bicycles has already exceeded 500 US dollars. It is a great help to promote domestic energy-saving, carbon reduction, traffic safety and economy activities.

        As the global auto industry is undergoing dramatic changes, new energy cars in rapid expansion, self-driving cars led by Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), vehicle applications on the platform of Internet of things (IOT) and new business models brought up by cars sharing have all become the crucial issues to confront for vehicle manufacturers. On the other hand, as the growth of import cars has squeezed the market of domestic cars, suppliers of complete cars and components are facing challenges. They have to think positively about the progress and application of science and technology and speed up the countermeasures for survival. In the future, the Association will continue to take the initiative in cooperation with the government and attain the following goals together:

        • Accelerate the phase-out of old vehicles and expand the market scale to promote environmental protection, energy-saving, carbon reduction and traffic safety, and bring up economic activities as well
        • Study and adjust the tax system of vehicles rationally and enhance the competitiveness of domestic vehicles.
        • Drive the internationalization of the supply chains by localization of new energy vehicles, energy-saving vehicles and their key components.
        • Combine with domestic industries such as motor, electronics for cross-industry exchanges and cooperation to build a unique product competitive advantage.
        • Actively organize delegations to participate in overseas exhibitions, and assist member companies to expand oversea markets.

        However, we will keep on playing a role as a bridge between the industry and government and ask the government to create a space conducive to the development of the overall vehicle industry. It is highly anticipated that under the joint efforts of each other, the vehicle industry of automobiles, motorcycles, bicycles and related parts and components will play an important leading role in Taiwan.

  • Objective

    Insisting on the guideline of "Service, Expertise and Efficiency", we coordinate the relationship between fellow manufacturers, promote the common benefits of member companies, upgrade the technology of industry and enhance the international competitiveness.
    • Origin

      1. 1984

        Established in 1948, the Association was formerly called "Taiwan Transportation Equipment Manufacturers Association".

      2. 1955

        In 1955, it was re-named as "Taiwan Transportation Vehicle Manufacturers Association" During the early days of Taiwan's restoration when the Association started its operation, everything had been laid waste and in urgent need for construction. The members were only including about 20 small processing factories and parts manufacturers.

      3. 2018

        In the wake of rapid development of domestic economy and gradual improvement of people's living standards, new types of factories have grown to the present level of about 600. In the meantime, the quality of products has also come up to the standards of advanced countries. It reflects the prosperity of Taiwan's vehicle industry.
