Malaysia encourages companies in this sub-sector to design, sell, and maintain electronic industrial solutions for businesses – from the electrical grid to user end points.
Industrial electronics refers to electronic products such as computer peripherals, equipment, telecommunication devices, transmitters, routers and embedded systems.
Malaysia enjoys trade benefits through General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade’s (GATT) Generalised System of Preferences (GSP), unilateral trade agreements, and trade liberalisation such as AFTA (Asian Free Trade Agreement) and ASEAN (Association of South-East Asian Nation). The nation has world class infrastructure, technological expertise, and manufacturing diversity to meet the demands of global business customers.
Malaysia’s industrial electronics sub-sector is prioritising on high technology applications to move the E&E industry towards higher value added activities. This sub-sector is moving towards greater sophistication through advanced technology applications to create more complex products. To date, Malaysia features an established electronic industrial cluster that is concentred in Penang and Kulim, Kedah.

Professional Scientific and Test Measuring Equipment
Test and measurement devices are analytical equipment and instruments that detect and measure physical properties, biological interactions, and electrical signals. The global test and measurement market plays an important role in the development of new products and technologies.
The rising demand for
advanced PCBs and surface mounted
This is expected to drive the automated
optical inspection system market in the
Technically-advanced electronic machines require efficiently tested PCBs to meet the manufacturing and safety standards applied for their development. The automated optical inspection system market offers application-specific testing and fault detection at every stage of the PCB production process.
Recent progress in the industry has been marked by the rollout of the fifth generation technology standard for broadband cellular networks or better known as 5G. This is expected to connect people, things, data, applications, systems and cities faster and more reliably. It is a technology revolution that will bring new power to existing ICT technologies, and trigger sweeping changes in the industry.
Industry experts have embarked on their 5G journey and are aspiring to see their efforts bear fruit. These advances have created what is dubbed as the ‘digital era’ and are paving the way for significant IT and network architecture changes in 2019.
The demand for high speed data is expected to increase exponentially, and will persist in the years to come with even greater volumes of data generated by new technologies. Streaming video on ultra-high-definition TV screens, virtual reality applications, real-time online gaming, and smart homes are trends that are here to stay and these require high-capacity, low-latency network connections
MIDA welcomes more high technology and value added investments that can contribute to the expansion of this area in Malaysia.
