Aftermarket in Asia is expanding.

This year, Asia’s largest dedicated trade fair will welcome around 6,000 exhibitors and 130,000 visitors, and is also expected to house some of the latest advancements from both the global and domestic automotive industries. A Chinese glass window film and paint developer is exhibiting for the first time at Automechanika Shanghai 2017, with the goal of expanding into some of Asia’s most promising regions. Mr Kris Yang, Manager of International Business: “We’re looking to broaden our horizons to the likes of Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia. These regions are all experiencing a growing presence in the sector, and with the help of Automechanika Shanghai we’re hoping to capitalise on this growth.”

Similarly, a shock absorber manufacturer says that the Asian market, and China in particular, is constantly demanding a higher level of technical products and expertise. “Thanks to the growing consumer need for smarter vehicles and electric cars, China is looking to continually grow in terms of design, research, development and component manufacturing,” says Mr Lijun Fu, Deputy General Manager of Marketing.
