Despite COVID-19, the United States automotive aftermarket market is skyrocketing and is expected to exceed US $448 billion by 2025, according to Research and Markets. Rising trends – such as increased demand for electric vehicles, the emergence of advanced car accessories and the proliferation of used car sales platforms – have set up the US automotive market for significant growth.
The US has become the largest market for Taiwan’s automotive parts, accounting for more than 40% of the country’s exports. Main exports include car lights, tires, and other items such as suspension and transmission systems.
Due in part to a smaller domestic market, Taiwan’s manufacturers rely on exports and have stepped up research and development. As a result, Taiwan is well-suited to adapt to changing industry trends. One focus is environmentally-friendly auto parts, such as LED headlights and other new energy sources. These developments support not only the demand for EVs, but also support consumers in the used car market looking to upgrade older models.
