< KOAASHOW 2016 & Korean Car Market and Forecast >
KOAASHOW has grown steadily over the past 10 years, as a representative of the Korea Automobile Industry Exhibition. KOAASHOW has successfully served as a venue for leading overseas automotive industry to enter into Korean automobile market, and at the same time as a platform for Korean companies to expand their business into the overseas market. Since 1988 when the Korean market was completely open to foreign automakers and imported cars, the market share for imported cars has been steadily increasing, now approaching 20% of the market. Accordingly, a trend of global sourcing for worldwide automakers has also increased with domestic Korean companies, known for international competitiveness for price and product development, which have been achieved by continuous revamping and structural improvements.
Along with China and Japan, which demonstrate a high level of technology and new products, Korea plays an important role in the East Asian automotive industry. We hope that you will be able to continue to find infinite possibilities and opportunities at KOAASHOW in Korea, which will become a hub for the world's auto parts industry with high quality and price competitiveness.
