In addition to growth in the semiconductor and other component segments the increase in output benefited from growth the computer, albeit only modest, control and instrumentation, medical and telecom segments. Malaysia is one of the world’s leading centres for semiconductor packaging and assembly, with output for the key semiconductor sector increasing by 7.4% in 2019 but is forecast to decline by a 2.8% in 2020 on the back of the slowdown in the global semiconductor market as a result of COVID-19. After stabilising over the period 2014-2017 the production of computer and related equipment increased by 11.8% in 2018 on the back of higher exports before posting modest growth of 0.2% in 2019.
