China Cycle 2018: From Making to Creating
SHANGHAI, China – How will China’s e-bike and e-bike component industry respond to the current anti-dumping and anti-subsidy investigations by the European Union. That will be one of the leading topics widely discussed at the 28th edition of China Cycle 2018.
Known for their 160,000 plus visitors in the huge new Shanghai National Exhibition and Convention Center, the size of China Cycle is immense. The theme of the 28th edition of the China Cycle 2018 is ‘Intelligent world, Sharing world’.
‘Stage of transformation and upgrading’
The show, in number of exhibitors and booths, the largest bicycle show on earth, opens its doors on May 6 at the National Exhibition and Convention Centre in Shanghai. “We are currently experiencing a stage of transformation and upgrading,” says Ma Zhongchao, chairman and show organizer of the China Bicycle Association on the upcoming show. “Our strategy is to transform this industry from ‘Made in China’ to ‘Created in China’. To accomplish our goals, we are at the starting point to increase interaction with overseas companies to deepen new and existing relationships. The global bicycle industry will achieve a leap forward with the convergence of modern technologies and internet.”
Last year some 9 percent of the more than 1,200 exhibitors were e-bike manufacturers plus another 4 percent e-bike component suppliers. The previous edition of the show was visited by more than 10,000 foreign visitors. China Cycle reported last year that 18 percent of all visitors were interested in e-bikes. The big question for this year’s China Cycle is how the market will respond to the current e-bike anti-dumping investigation initiated by the European Commission.
