Hosted by Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA), the show offers the most inclusive and comprehensive platform for auto parts and related industries to procure the latest products and biz news. Taipei AMPA revolves around industry big-names exhibiting auto parts like engines, suspension systems, transmissions, brakes to auto lamps, batteries, motors and Internet of Vehicle applications.

As the traditional auto parts industry continues to keep pace with new technology advancements by rolling out trend and consumer demand-adhering products, big-name companies like Tong Yang Industry and Gordon Auto Body Parts for body collision parts, Depo Auto Parts, Sonar Auto Parts and Eagle Eyes Traffic for auto lights, Hsiang Lun Int'l and Tong Hong Auto Parts for engine parts, Enterex International for engine radiators, Hwang Yu Auto Parts for chassis parts, Nan Hoang for brakes, ANTRC Industrial and Jing Chern Electronics for performance parts, Ko Chou Enterprise for truck parts, Hu Lane Associate and Jeesoon Terminals for auto-use terminals. These companies are all considered heavyweights in the industry, representing how Taiwan's auto parts companies are still closely interlinked with the market despite the vast technological advancements the industry has made.

Market NewsTAITRA President Walter M.S. Yeh said Taiwan's auto parts exports achieved USD$7 billion in 2018. As Taiwan is renowned for its quality services and products, hence the “Made in Taiwan (MIT)” brand, has become a benchmark thanks to years of cultivating the brand. The MIT brand is among the primary reasons why foreign buyers flock to Taipei AMPA and partner shows, which shows how it has helped increased Taiwan's competitiveness in the auto parts industry.

On the other hand, Taiwan Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers' Association Chair Winner Yu pointed out that the semiconductor industry is also a huge partner in supporting the entirety of Taiwan's auto parts industry. With the government promoting autonomous-related laws, Yu is optimistic that the future for Taiwan's electric vehicles and smart electronics is paved for a spot in the growing industry.
