Due to the development of manufacturing and food-processing industries, Yongkang has become a migrant city since the 1970s, attracting many people from neighboring cities who now work and live in the city. Its population experienced a large increase during the 1970s, and Yongkang became the largest city in Tainan County in 1977.
In 1993 "Yongkang Township" was upgraded to “Yongkang City" since its population exceeded 150,000.
