The Current Status of the Taiwanese Machine Tool Industry Export and import statistics announced by Taiwan’s Ministry of Finance indicated that the overall performance is fruitful. Though the consumption for machine tools from January to August 2012 decreased by 3.57%, the total production, as well as the export volume, enjoyed almost 10% growth. As many companies are prepared to introduce new generation models at TIMTOS 2013, another business peak is expected.
