Auto parts shipments are expected to grow by at least 25% this year in line with the flourishing automotive industry. 

The Thai Autoparts Manufacturers Association (Tapma) expects exports will total US$15 billion this year, up from $11-12 billion last year. "Prospects remain promising on the back of surging automobile and motorcycle production," said president Achana Limpaitoon.
