Trends in Taiwan’s Sports and Leisure Industry
The sports market is booming worldwide. In recent years, Taiwan’s sports and leisure supply chain and fitness center sector have been consistently on the rise. With the 2020 Tokyo Olympics in the offing, Taiwan’s sports and leisure industry is set to reap positive benefits. According to the Taiwan Institute of Economic Research, the output of the sporting goods manufacturing industry displayed double-digit growth of 17.26% from January to February 2019. Notably, at the recent 2018 World Cup, 32 countries used sports equipment from Taiwan. In 2019, Taiwan’s bicycle exports approached the NT$10 billion dollar mark, a new milestone in the sports and leisure industry.

In 2018, Taiwan achieved a total of US$1.94 billion in sporting goods exports, with an annual growth rate of 6.73%. Taiwan’s top three markets are the United States (43.84%), China (11.03%), and Japan (7.21%).
“In 2017, global fitness center memberships reached 174 million, and fitness centers generated revenues of US$87.2 billion worldwide. Total memberships are expected to reach 230 million by 2030.”

Four Major Sports Technology Trends
  • Quantitative Data

    Wearable devices such as smart watches and smart bracelets can now provide useful information and statistics, by analyzing data collected from built-in accelerometers, gyroscopes and other sensors.

  • Virtual/Physical Integration

    Virtual/physical integration technology enhances athletic experiences, such accessing online road maps for real-world running, or experiencing 3D rides as an avatar on a bicycle cycling alongside other athletes from around the world.

  • Home Fitness

    Home fitness is one of the latest trends in sports. Consumers can purchase sports and fitness commodities online and have them delivered to their homes to enjoy workouts, rain or shine.

  • Gamification and Virtual Social Networking

    Excellent coaches, interactive screens, elastic cushioned mats and walls made of pressure-sensitive materials, LED lights, and sound effects are just some of the latest innovations in this field. Heartbeat and training data can be recorded throughout workout sessions, and game modes with sound and light effects make highly repetitive exercise movements interesting and motivational.

FIT DISC GLR The extra-solid bottom bracket is strengthened to reduce the stress from the rear fork and improve the pedaling reaction. The light and shadow refraction generated by the disc as the wheel rotating rapidly, brings a rich color banquet.The flashing gradient of green and the dim luster of pearl flakes add diversity to the road scenery along the way. VOLANDO frame design: 1. The rim won’t be too hot, which can improve the brake sensitivity. 2. Does not make the rider to lose grip strength when riding The design of the frame is asymmetrical head tube, short head tube and shorter length of the lower fork, to balance the weight increase of the bike after the disc is added. It is expected to improve the safety of the bike without losing the sensitivity.
The all-new ONE-TWENTY is the best all-rounder. This short travel trail bike (front 130 mm/rear 120 mm) is equally at home on long and demanding uphills as it is on energy-sapping straights as well as technical downhills and singletracks. The updated geometry and frame design gives the bike a very playful character, but it is still precise and lightning fast. Due to its low weight and fantastic power delivery, it is a hugely capable long distance bike. Equipped with a new oversized chain stay design, which increases the rear end stiffness of the frame dramatically and improves durability as well. The CF4 level carbon frame is around 400g lighter and impresses through increased stiffness and durability. The head tube angle has been slackened from 69 to 67.3 degrees, improving the descending skills of the ONE-TWENTY even further. The chain stays are 10 mm shorter resulting in a more playful bike which still offers the perfect balance between being a great climber and an agile trail bike
The TIME WARP TT is the new weapon for Bahrain-MERIDA when racing against the clock, faster and lighter than ever before. While keeping the strong points of the former WARP TT bike, which was successfully won Taiwan excellence GOLD award, TIME WARP TT has been fundamentally redesigned. Pushing the limits of UCI’s legality and manufacturing, all the cables run completely internally, from the new full carbon cockpit to the brakes and derailleurs. The front- and rear brake are entirely covered for reducing unwanted turbulences. MERIDA designed cockpit has a one-piece carbon design taking advantage of the UCI’s 3:1 rule cancellation. Its cross-sections are as slim as possible providing the best compromise of aerodynamic and stiffness. TIME WARP TT redesign offers an overall advantage of 9 Watt and a weight saving of 400g compared to the old bike. TIME WARP TT has an integrated storage compartment, that offers space for an inner tube, CO2 cartridge or mini tool.
TPI first introduced all ceramic ball bearings for bike wheel hubs several years ago. They were assembled in a hub and wheel for track bike. It was tested that 0.3 second reduction was achieved by Olympic athlete thanks to its low friction and high stiffness to weight ratio properties. Bike wheel hubs specified all ceramic ball bearings which are made of ASTM F2094 Standard ceramic and manufactured by automated machine exceeds industrial standard. They provide excellent friction property for hubs where 90% bearing friction loss is consumed.
