M&E industry is always at the forefront of the global Industrial Revolution. This sector has seen the progression from the mechanisation era (Industry 1.0) moving to mass production machines (Industry 2.0) followed by the adoption of automation machine (Industry 3.0) and now the Internet of Things (Industry 4.0) which is becoming an integral part of future manufacturing. These achievements showcased the advancement of technological convergence, translated into many innovative products combining arrays of elements such as electronics, advanced materials and software integration.
The Government continues to place huge emphasis on developing a sophisticated and state of the art M&E industry; encourage local players to intensify the adoption of advanced technologies to keep pace and be prepared to support the requirements of future advanced manufacturing covering broad sections of the economy.
Malaysia’s modern M&E industry is a far cry from just servicing imported M&E to support the agricultural and resource-based industries. Over time it has evolved and attained global recognition amongst prestigious manufacturers of specialised process and automation equipment, particularly for the electrical and electronics (E&E) industry and material handling equipment.
More Malaysian companies are transforming from being contract manufacturers to becoming Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), investing heavily in R&D, engineering design, innovation and system integration. With enhanced capabilities and involvement in higher value-added activities throughout the M&E ecosystem, Malaysian companies have achieved international recognition to integrate themselves into the global supply chain. Most exciting of all, Malaysians are also applying their knowledge and resources towards developing their own proprietary M&E for global exports.
