ERJ staff report (DS)
Taipei -- Taiwanese automotive supplier Mobiletron says China is developing regulation which will require vehicles to carry tyre pressure monitoring systems. Taiwanese news service CENS quotes Mobiletron`s chairman Kim Tsai saying that China is in the process of developing a multi-stage introduction of TPMS systems to vehicles on China's roads.
CENS said, "the policy would require 25 percent of all new cars sold in China to be installed with TPMS in the initial stage, and then 50 percent in the second year. Tsai himself is also one of the members setting up the national TPMS standard for China."
Tsai suggested the value of the TPMS business in China would be over NT$ 20 billion (Euro 500 million). He reportedly said Mobiletron has 10 percent of China's TPMS market.
