TAIWAN'S MACHINE TOOL INDUSTRY is helping solar energy plants, major semiconductor manufacturers, panel industries, multinational car makers and many others innovate and increase their competiveness through advanced machine tool products. Nearly 80% of the total machine tools output last year was exported to over 138 countries. In 2013, Taiwan had total machine tool exports of more than US$3.5 billion and total machine tool component exports of more than US$1 billion. The U.S. is the second largest export market for Taiwan machine tools after China/Hong Kong, followed by Thailand, Turkey, Germany, Indonesia, South Korea, Malaysia, Russia and the Netherlands.

In 2013, exports of Taiwan-made lathes and turning machines to the U.S.  reached US$1.187 billion. Taiwan also supplied 10.93% of the total U.S. machining center requirements, valued at some US$141.42 million. Machining centers ranked third in Taiwan-to-U.S. machinery exports.

In the area of machine tools, Taiwan shipped US$418.79 million worth of goods to the U.S. in 2014 with continued growth in 2014. That included US$236 million in U.S.-bound machine tool shipments in the first seven months of 2014, up 5.2% over the same period in 2013; and US$45 million worth of machine tools in July 2014 alone, a remarkable 63.7% increase over the previous July.

The industry's growth is being driven in part by world-class industry clusters in the country's Golden Valley, which is home to more than 1,000 precision machinery manufacturers and upwards of 10,000 downstream suppliers that employ more than 300,000 people. With an annual output of $3 billion, the Golden Valley has the highest output value per unit area and the highest density of any machine tool industry cluster in the world.
