Taiwan trade backed by Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA), will display Taiwan’s latest sports accessories manufacturing technology at ISPO Munich 2020 from January 26-29 at Messe Munchen, Germany. Through exhibition of more than 20 products such as sports towels & glasses, TAITRA hopes the products will attract a lot of business opportunities.
Taiwantrade is Taiwan’s most prominent B2B portal, organised by TAITRA and backed by BOFT. TAITRA assists Taiwanese businesses in strengthening their competitiveness in the international market. With advent of 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games, Taiwan’s textile and optical enterprises have been in the peak season with intensive orders since the second half of 2019. Taiwan made accessories will be worn by athletes from all over the world celebrating achievements of Taiwan manufacturing industry.
With its forward-looking mindset, Taiwan’s created the best stockings centre – Shetou, Changhua, Central Taiwan. This home of stockings industry supplies 90 per cent of stockings to the international market. In the past decade, manufacturers have cooperated with Taiwan’s top sports organisations to develop exclusive sports socks. From materials used to product design, the industry players totally transformed the perception of sports socks by using cutting-edge technology.
Unlike most of the products in the market that emphasise the material or fabric used, Changhua hosiery manufacturers took the game to the next level by adding functions of ‘sports injuries prevention’ and ‘sports performance enhancement’ to the products. Up to now, there are 200 sock factories in Changhua, the ‘hosiery kingdom’ of Taiwan. From cotton socks to sports pressure socks and sports functional socks, these high-quality products made with advanced technologies are recognised by consumers all over the world.
Taiwan’s eyewear industry has been producing fashionable and innovative products for decades, manufacturers put their focus on sports correction films, trying to explore the market which has long been undervalued. Wide coverage and large curvature of lenses are always the key of sport glasses, which largely increased the technology barriers to produce sport glasses with myopia and astigmatism lenses.
By inventing the exclusive technology to minimise the ‘rhombic mirror effect’ in optics, Taiwan manufacturers with R&D capabilities successfully created the marketable sports corrections films by improving wearer’s comfort and broadening the vision. Although foreign manufacturers developed similar products by using different solutions, the customer satisfaction of Taiwan’s world leading products is more than 95 per cent.
