Penang’s vibrant industrial ecosystem is a strong determining factor for many investments, upheld by a network of diversified and competent local manufacturers.
AEROSPACE / AVIONICS
With SAM Engineering & Equipment taking a prominent presence here in the State together with few other aerospace / avionics companies, Penang is poised to become a growth nexus for the sector – in line with Malaysia’s aim to become Southeast Asia’s leading aerospace nation by 2030.
In 2017, the Malaysian aerospace industry recorded a revenue of RM13.5 billion, with an export value of RM8.51 billion. By 2030, its revenue is expected to reach RM55.2 billion with more than 32,000 high-income jobs in the pipeline. About 20% of all aerospace activities in Malaysia are located in Penang (largest outside Klang Valley) (Source: Malaysian Industry Group for High Technology).
