Since 2020, the bicycle industry has experienced tremendous growth as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
From January to July 2022, the total export value of Taiwan’s traditional bicycle, e-bikes, and bicycle parts
reached $3.542 billion (USD), with a year-on-year growth of 29%. Notably, the growth of Taiwan’s e-bike
exports has surpassed traditional bicycles, and is estimated to exceed traditional bicycles by 2025 with the
so-called “Golden Cross”. With people becoming more accepting of healthier and more sustainable
lifestyles, support for a market that focuses on smart devices and sustainability has dramatically increased.
As a result, Taiwan's bicycle industry has a great standing point due to its strong supply chain and its
strategic positioning in technologies.

In 2023, TAIPEI CYCLE will rebrand itself, focusing on five key themes in sustainability, including Resilient Supply Chain, Digital
Connections, Vibrant Innovations, Dynamic Lifestyle, and Sustainable Moves. These themes will cover supply chain, OEM,
brands, smart wearables, training software and equipment, and bike tour services. 2023 will also see the physical show held
alongside TAIPEI CYCLE DigitalGo, a newly developed virtual show. The integrated physical show and virtual platform will see
a greater reach internationally, and as borders open from the pandemic restrictions, TAITRA will also promote and invite more
international buyers via its overseas branches.

Panellists of this international press conference included Robert Wu, president of KMC and Ken Li, spokesman of GIAN GROUP,
who shared their insights on the international trends of Net-Zero, digitalization, smart devices, the changes of the cycling
industry and the green practices of their organisations. Watch the live stream video
