Country Reports: Asia

Excluding Japan, China dominates the Asian electronics industry and has an increasingly important role globally the country the major producing country with a share of around 38% in 2016 and up from 29% in 2011. Despite rising labour costs China is still seen as the preferred location for overseas companies, while local manufacturers ramp up production to meet global demand and the surging domestic market. Nevertheless, other Asian countries do have significant electronics industries with South Korea, Taiwan, Malaysia, Singapore and in the last few years Vietnam all playing an important role within the global market. India, with its vast domestic market, will provide significant market opportunities although the required investment in infrastructure will be pivotal to the growth of the industry. 

The Asia Pacific electronics industry has been built primarily on foreign investment and many countries are finding it increasingly difficult to compete with China, in particular, for low-cost assembly. As a result governments in countries such as Malaysia and Singapore are looking to focus on higher value products.

Similar to the US and countries in Western Europe, Japan is being impacted by the migration of production to low-cost locations. By the end of 2016, electronics output had fallen significantly since the peak in 2000 with the country’s share of global electronics output declining to 7% down from 26% in 1995. Despite this Japan remains a key producer of products based on the latest technologies.
