Dr Ming-Hsin Kung, deputy minister, Ministry of Economic Affairs, Republic of China (Taiwan), shared his thoughts: “Today, it is not only about components and hardware. Software and applications are also powering innovation. The ‘Double Industry’ has reached US$ 150 billion and is growing. With these capabilities, we are going to shape the Silicon Valley of Asia initiative.”

James C.F. Huang, chairman, TAITRA, said: “Forty four years ago, Taiwan’s electronics industry was not very powerful. People were facing many challenges with designing and producing chips. Today, Taiwan is one of the largest manufacturers of electronics. However, we need to focus more on software too, so that we combine it with our hardware capabilities to leverage technologies like AI and IoT.”

Technology showcase

The show gave visitors a closer look at the powerful hardware manufacturing capabilities that Taiwan possesses—something India can take note of. Experts also commented on how India’s strong software base and talent pool for new technologies can complement Taiwan’s robust hardware ecosystem to drive a business partnership beneficial to both the nations. Many global as well as local Taiwanese technology solution providers expressed their interest in expanding their presence into the Indian market.

Essentially, there was a blend of conventional solutions and modern technologies. This year, the emphasis was on integrating IoT, data analytics, machine-to-machine communication and machine learning capabilities in products. Smart technologies like enterprise monitoring platforms, NB-IoT and LPWAN-enabled smart city solutions, intelligent robots, factory automation solutions, smart home products, automated kiosks, advanced test and measurement equipment and devices, AI platforms, power electronics, connected healthcare devices and so on showcased the primary technology trends of the year. Numerous startups were also present – six of whom were recognised for their innovative applications with the Smart Innovation Applications Award, along with six other renowned enterprises.

This year marked the 44th Taipei International Electronics Show (TAITRONICS) and the first Taiwan International AIoT show (AioT Taiwan). The event, jointly organised by the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) and the Taiwan Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers’ Association (TEEMA), was hosted at the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center, Hall 1, from October 9 to 12, 2018.
