CREST- GMN Workshop Deck 2014

  1. 1. A case for the E&E sector in Malaysia
  2. 2. 2 The Evolution of E&E in Malaysia Simple components, semiconductor parts assembly and SKD electrical products Consumer electronics parts to full assembly Office & computer equipment (inc. hard disk drive and hard disks) Higher value-added products/activities - R&D - IC & System Design - Wafer fab, - Ingot growing - Low volume, high complexity and high mixed products (e.g: instrument, medical, aerospace), - Digital consumer goods (e.g blu-ray player, HDTV-LED flatscreen, e-book) 2010 1990 1980 1970 Started in 1970’s with 7 companies Consumer : Clarion and Bosch Components : AMD, HP, Intel, Litronix and National Semiconductor Future Fablite Fabless Miniaturization Flexible electronics Electric Vehicle (EV) Laser Video Display SMART Electronics Internet of Things • Labour Intensive • Low Technology Products • Low value added • Capital Intensive • Knowledge Based • Hi-Tech • High Value Added Source: MIDA
  3. 3. 3 Since then and today 700 E&E Companies in Penang 200MNCs directly in E&E 50%Penang workforce directly or indirectly in E&E E&E contributes 33%of Malaysia’s export
  4. 4. 4 E&E is still very important Source: MATRADE
  5. 5. 5 80% of Malaysians earns < RM3k a month Despite all these… Local companies not moving up the value-chain Malaysia’s value proposition for new/ existing investments Lack of R&D breakthrough Gaps between IP creation & commercialization R&D $ ≠ ROI University measurement ≠ commercialization Depletion of Science graduates Shortage of STEM for Industry
  6. 6. 6 Challenges faced by E&E in D&D The core challenges which we have to address to achieve High Income nation status Challenges MNCs Large Local Companies SMEs Funding (Grant) OK Limited (Mainly own funding) Difficult Human Capital (Good Quality Fresh Graduates - GPA 3.5 and above) OK Difficult Difficult Human Capital (Experienced) Difficult Difficult Difficult Collaborations (Academia) Limited Limited Very Limited Technology Acquisition N/A Limited Very Limited Global Competition High High High Competency of Vendors / Suppliers / Partners Low Average N/A Source: Special Innovation Unit, PM's Office

  8. 8. 8 Where are we for the local companies? Most of the locally owned companies were incorporated during the 80s and 90s – hence what happened to Malaysia’s E&E in the 21st century?
