Machinery & Metal – Basic Metal Products

Basic Metal Products

The basic metal products industry in Malaysia plays a major role in the development of the manufacturing and construction sectors. The industry comprises the manufacturing of ferrous (iron and steel) and nonferrous (aluminium, tin, copper, etc.) metal products. 

Malaysian companies are active in upstream, midstream and downstream activities, and produce both flat and long products. Flat products (e.g. slabs, hot-rolled and cold rolled coils and coated steel products) are used as intermediate raw materials for downstream applications in the sectors of E&E, automotive parts and components, oil and gas, furniture, machinery and equipment and fabricated products. Long products (e.g. billets, blooms and rebar) are primarily used in the construction and civil engineering industry. 

The iron and steel products sub-sector in Malaysia is moving towards Industry 4.0; a crucial step towards sustaining the subsector and remaining competitive in the long term. Both upstream and downstream processes are switching over to smart manufacturing, using the latest stateof-theart technologies.
