Opportunities in Malaysia for Automation and Control System Manufacturers, Forecast to 2021

Opportunities in Malaysia for Automation and Control System Manufacturers, Forecast to 2021

This study provides an in-depth understanding of the Malaysian automation and process control systems market, the current trends impacting the market, and the growth across automation and process control systems for the next five years. It also talks about various end users and opportunities available for automation suppliers in Malaysia. The study provides detailed information on the following products: Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC), Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA), Distributed Control Systems (DCS), Human Machine Interface (HMI), and Safety Systems (SS). It also gives insight into the distribution channels and key end users and compares major automation vendors based on parameters considered important while choosing the supplier.

The study also evaluates the role of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and the opportunities that will be available for automation suppliers. In all such forecasts, the study considers the current economic and political factors, as these are important to assess investment and incentive plans. There is also a section that discusses the opportunities, considering that cyber security, cloud computing, and other digitization efforts are likely to heavily influence automation in the long run and what suppliers should consider in order to realize the benefits.

With Malaysia being considered as a major automation and process control hub in Southeast Asia, the opportunities are immense for major suppliers of automation and related systems. However, this requires a clear understanding of the economic policies of Malaysia, as the country has identified areas that offer incentives for investors. As mentioned, new technologies are proving to be a driver for investment in a country that has been challenged by fluctuating oil prices. Overall, buyers of this study will be able to understand the scenario in Malaysia with respect to major end user trends.
