China's ATV Export to USA Reachs Almost US$500 Million in 5 Years

DUBLIN, Ireland--Oct. 1, 20059, 2005--Research and Markets has announced the addition of All-terrain Vehicles in China and Taiwan to their offering.

In only five years, China's exports of all-terrain vehicles have reached almost US$500 million. The country's annual production of ATVs, which consists mainly of 50 to 250cc models that can run up to 100kph, already accounts for about 40 percent of the world's total ATV output. Suppliers in the industry mostly started out as motorcycle or scooter makers, relying on their expertise in these related fields to provide them with the knowledge necessary to branch out into ATV manufacturing. More recently, a large number of companies manufacturing automotive parts have also diversified into ATVs. The technical backgrounds of these makers enable them to quickly and easily modify designs to meet changing demands.

The following are some of the key trends in China's ATVs export industry:

-- More high-displacement models will be released in the next 12 months. Makers, especially those based in Chongqing, will be developing 300 to 600cc ATVs for those utilizing ATVs for heavy work-related tasks rather than for recreation.

-- Export sales will continue to grow by double digits as demand for ATVs, especially from the United States, continues to rise.

-- To prepare for the anticipated increase in exports, suppliers will be boosting production capacity by upgrading manufacturing equipment and technology, and QC systems.
