The Osaka Automesse is one of the biggest auto shows in Kansai area, focusing car and its customization. Initially it was about one-third of current scale when it was held in 1997. Now, we will have the 23rd show, and it grew up to this scale. We would like to thank all of you for your continuous efforts, your understanding and your cooperation.
As previously mentioned, the first Osaka Automesse was held in 1997. 1997 is the year that Toyota Prius was introduced as the world’s first mass-produced hybrid vehicle. Prius wasn’t considered as a target of customization at that time. Prius was marketed as the world’s first eco-friendly car, but now it is the fourth generation and is perfect for customization since it has a good selection of auto parts. Lately the 100% electric car such as Nissan Leaf and Tesla are seen in the street. The technological innovation such as batteries globally encourages the motorization of cars, and we can’t wait to have custom car models based on the electric cars.
On the other hands, the cars of 80’s and 90’s are more refined as heritage cars. It may be a new trend to have users who remember the good old days of cars. It's no exaggeration to say that cars, users and customization are closely related each other, and have been changing with the time.
Japan is going to have an impact of depopulation and aging population combined with declining birthrate. Looking outside of Japan, Asia, especially Southeast Asia, has achieved remarkable economic growth in recent years. Thailand and Indonesia, associated to Osaka Automesse, have achieved economic development which can be period of economic growth, and a lot of Japanese cars can be seen in their town. The organizers related to the motor show representing Thailand and Indonesia visited last motor show.
Diversification of values and market trends are not completely unrelated to automobiles and auto customization industry. We constantly strive to continue our activities that cover not only Japan but also overseas.
We appreciate your understanding of the intent of having Osaka Automesse, your support and your cooperation.
