We are now discussing with three companies from the Chinese mainland for possible manufacturing cooperation. Some 40 buyers visited our booth in the first two days of exhibition. We’ve found 10 to 12 good leads from different countries such as Brazil, Argentina, Germany, UK and Russia.

1. “The rise in VR and AR technologies will make the world very different in the years to come. Today, a number of companies are racing to jump on the bandwagon to tap the tremendous opportunities arising from the new technologies. The first wave is expected to focus on VR-backed games. We reckon some two million VR game devices will come on stream in 2016. Special applications related to medical, educational, manufacturing and other activities probably will join the excitement in 2017. The pace of applications for the more demanding and costly AR technology may be slower than that of VR.  But it is certainly drawing extensive interest particularly in B2B applications now. The prospect looks good and we expect to see further improvements in various aspects of the technologies such as enhancing the computing speed, reducing the size of devices and making them more affordable. Another issue is tackling the undesirable motion sickness when using VR or AR devices. We will definitely see VR and AR technologies getting their way into our business and everyday life in the next three to five years. With the technologies getting increasingly mature and sophisticated, VR and AR devices will become popular items we use and carry every day.”
Alex Hou, Industry Analyst & Project Manager, IEK, Industrial Technology Research Institute, Taiwan


2. “Wearables are everywhere in electronic shows today. There are plenty of smart watches and fitness bands on offer and we expect to see much more coming on stream. We are still in a very early stage in this market. In the years to come, many products will be smart watch-based. We see a lot of activity being developed around our ears as well as smart glasses. In addition, the healthcare sector is going to be the biggest stake in the wearable market in the coming years. We believe the market for intelligent patches will be huge as patch-based items are very close to body and especially helpful in tracking biophysical data. This is my second-year participation in the fair. I saw a lot of offerings such as smart watches and activity monitoring items. An innovative device designed to analyses your stress level and bring you calmness through neuro feedback has got my interest in particular. This is a very interesting exhibition because you can see everything from electronic components to application. This is something I really love to see. Trade fairs like this have a booster effect to the market’s development by putting people on stage or to the booth to showcase what they can offer. Companies can also use the fair to test the market and find out whether or not they are getting enough leads and interest for new products before they go to mass volume production. Fairs are brilliant to help everyone in the market. Even with the Internet, we still need a fair. We have to touch the products and talk each other face-to-face to explore more business opportunities.”
Christian Stammel, CEO, Wearable Technologies AG, Germany
