Taiwan Machine Tools:Helping Shape Malaysia’s Innovative Future

The “Taiwan Machinery Products” Launch to be held on May 21st at Metaltech 2014 will highlight the technological strengths of Taiwan’s metalworking and machine tools industries. This event aims to enhance the local manufacturing sectors’ competitive edge and business opportunity in Malaysia. Organized by the Bureau of Foreign Trade (BOFT), Ministry of Economic Affairs, and implemented by the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA), the product launch will serve as a major platform to showcase the best technologies that have been driving the metalworking market forward.

Jessie Tseng, director of Taiwan Trade Center Kuala Lumpur, quipped: ”Taiwan is home to many cutting-edge products, including machinery and machine tools. And Taiwan offers the world an opportunity to tap into its extensive machinery industry clusters, which form an integral part of the global supply chain.” Taiwan’s machinery products are geared mostly for export. Nearly 80% of the total machine tools output last year was exported to different markets in the world, making Taiwan the world’s fourth largest exporter of machine tools.

Of the lathes and turning machines Malaysia imported US$39 million during the January-June period last year. Taiwan accounted for 38.98% of such imports, which valued at US$ 15 million. As for machining centers, Malaysia imported a total of USD 68 million during the same period, with Taiwan accounting for 15.14% of the shipments, which valued at US$10.33 million. Exports of machine tools from Taiwan to Malaysia were the 3rd highest in 2013. Industry leaders are anticipating substantial growth this year.

Looking into the future, Taiwan will assume the role of a major supplier of machine tools and parts to the global market, meeting increasing demand in Asian countries, particularly Malaysia.

Taiwan is helping industries everywhere to innovate and shape their competiveness through its supply of advanced machine tools. Solar energy plants, major semiconductor manufacturers, panel industries, and multinational car makers among other industries rely on Taiwan for supply of advanced machine tools.

Visit the Taiwanese exhibitors’ display area at Metaltech 2014 and experience an unprecedented opportunity to explore world-class innovations and technologies from over 50 Taiwanese machine-related companies.
