Taiwan to host global bicycle trade shows

taipei cycle 2018The Taiwan External Trade Development Council is set to host its global bicycle trade shows in Taipei from Oct 31 to Nov 3 next year.

Called the Taipei Cycle (Taipei International Cycle Show) 2018, it is one of the top three trade shows which has been established since 1988.

The council’s project manager Andrea Wu noted Malaysia is ranked 7th as one of the highest figure of visitors attending the exhibition.

“It’s interesting because five years ago, there wasn’t a high percentage of Malaysian visitors. However, this has changed in the past three years.

“Through our research, we also found that there are no Malaysian exhibitors (although they) have business opportunities with the manufacturers in Taiwan.

We realised also in terms of the export side, the quantity is still growing. For instance, last year Taiwan exported roughly 7,000 units of bicycles to Malaysia. The average unit price is high – US$500 (RM2,114) per unit. But, Malaysians were purchasing US$680 (RM2,874) per unit.

“This means they’re willing to buy an expensive bicycle from Taiwan,” she said when met after a presentation of speakers here yesterday.

She agreed there was a purchasing trend as some European handmade brands’ frame could cost between €2,000 (RM9950) and €5,000.

Present also was Malaysia Tourism Promotion Board’s deputy director Hishamuddin Mustafa who noted that Taiwan has 22 bicycle manufacturers, making them the world’s largest producer.
