2022/09/05 | By Tingyu Chao

Automechanika Frankfurt, the world's leading trade fair for the automotive industry, is returning to the Messe Frankfurt Exhibition Center in Germany on Sept. 13. The five-day show is held every two years, and this year happens to be the first event returning to an in-person capacity since the COVID-19 pandemic broke out in 2020.

Organizer Messe Frankfurt expects to see over 2,800 exhibitors from 70 countries and regions attend, with the majority coming from the top three countries: Germany, Italy, and Turkey. The automotive industry has seen significant changes in the past years since the last Automechanika Frankfurt in 2018. The show is now ushering in new technologies, and trends like the popularization of electric vehicles, IoT applications, sustainable development, and digitalization, which have permeated and impacted many facets of the automotive aftermarket sector.

Taiwanese suppliers serve an essential role in the global aftermarket supply chain. Many suppliers were eager to attend and resume pre-pandemic trade show activities, as COVID-19-related travel restrictions made it difficult to do business in person in the past years. Suppliers are raring to showcase quality products and to get a stake in the global market share. The exhibiting suppliers this year include control arm maker A-One Parts (Hall 1.1, J35B), dimmer switch maker Fair Sun (Hall 1.2, C24), carbon steel ball maker Tan Kong (Hall 1.1, J21D), A-Pro series socket set maker A-Kraft (Hall 9.1, F90), daytime running lights maker Esuse Auto Parts (Hall 1.2, B18), bit sockets and screwdrivers maker Tian Fu (Hall 8.0, G81), ring and bonded seals maker Shian Fu (Hall 1.2, A30), double spoiler wiper blade maker Fu Gang (Hall 1.2, A14), speedometer cable maker Excellent Cable (Hall 1.2, E25), air impact wrench maker Soartec (Hall 9.0, F86), and finally, Autopax offering various auto parts like deluxe bus mirrors (Hall 1.2, A23).
