Malaysia aims to capture two per cent of the global shipbuilding industry by 2020
Malaysia aims to capture two per cent of the global shipbuilding industry by 2020 from one per cent in 2010, President and Chairman of the Association of Marine Industries of Malaysia (AMIM) Tan Sri Ahmad Ramli Mohd Nor said. Global demand for new vessels is expected to grow 26 per cent in the next few years in tandem with global economic recovery. In Malaysia, oil and gas explorations in marginal oilfields will drive demand for vessels in the booming oil and gas sector.
Currently, there are over 80 active shipyards in Malaysia. Boustead Heavy Industries Corporation Bhd is a leading shipbuilding, ship repair, maritime, engineering and defence-related services provider, with three shipyards in Lumut, Pulau Jerejak and Langkawi. It has strong capabilities in the construction and repair of both naval and commercial ships.
The Shipbuilding Industry In Sibu, Sarawak
The Malaysian government wants the shipbuilding and ship repair (SBSR) industry in Sarawak to be developed in order to create a name for the state. For Sarawak alone, the SBSR industry generated revenue of RM2.83 billion in 2013 and succeeded in creating more business and employment opportunities for the local people. Sarawak exported 70 per cent of the ships manufactured, with the remaining for the local market. Ships manufactured in Malaysia are exported to neighbouring countries such as Singapore, Indonesia, Myanmar, Thailand, the Philippines and Brunei.
