Thai Auto Parts Aftermarket Association was established on July 23, 2009. The association’s office is located on Worajak Road intersection which is related to the widely known automotive parts commercial district.

It is acknowledged in the international trading arena that Thai automotive replacement parts are demanded from various countries around the world because of high quality products and an affordable price. Seen from the export amount of automotive replacement parts are increased every year. 

After a change in management policy, many closed countries turn to opening ones and trade freely under the government support. The form of competition in an auto parts market as well as consumer goods and other types of businesses are changed; as a result, the competition is in high level. Moreover, there are changes in consumers’ purchasing behavior from considering the product quality into product prices. 

The changes make Thai entrepreneurs who do businesses related to automotive replacement parts begin to gather for exhibition abroad. The purpose is to show the high quality products produced from Thai manufacturers. Gathering often leads to interchange knowledge and experiences among members in a group; as a result, there is an idea to gather a group correctly and suitably in order to widely distribute information, privileges, and knowledge experiences through Thai entrepreneurs. 

So the association’s duty is to coordinate among different parts of businesses and to drive an automotive replacement parts industry among Thai entrepreneurs smoothly without obstacles under the same objective.
