The electronics industry in Israel is heavily orientated towards supply of defence and communications requirements. Other main areas are medical equipment, control and instrumentation, and components. The production of consumer products is very limited. Electronics production grew rapidly, initially due to the need to invest in sophisticated and complex electronic systems for defence purposes. The flow from the defence sector had led to the development of state of-the-art civilian applications.

The Japanese electronics industry is facing underlying structural changes.  Similar to the US and countries in Western Europe, Japan has been impacted by the migration of production to low-cost locations. Between 2000 and 2015 electronics output has declined by an estimated 51%

Malaysia is one of the world’s leading centers for semiconductor packaging and assembly, with output for the key semiconductor sector increasing by an estimated 10.5%. Continued growth in new investment will help boost production in the medium-term although output could still be influenced if established manufactures look to adjust capacity or move production to other countries. The trend to higher value-added production will continue with the country continuing to be an attractive location for the world’s leading electronic manufacturing service providers.

The semiconductor sector is dominated by assembly and test. Following a flat year flat in 2013 output rebounded in 2014 and 2015 increasing by 3.7% and 3.0%, respectively. With the global semiconductor market set to show a low-single-digit decline in 2016 growth is forecast to ease to 1% for the year as a whole.  After high double-digit growth in 2014 computer and related products output eased to 7.0% in 2015 and is expected to slow to 4% in 2016.

Electronics remains one of the most important sectors of Singapore’s manufacturing industry accounting for an estimated 29.7% of overall manufacturing output in 2015, up from 27.0% a year earlier. Growth in the core semiconductor and computer and related products segments were the main contributing factor in electronics output increasing by 2.7% in 2015. Developments in the two segments will also have a major influence in 2016 as the on-going weakness in the global PC and semiconductor markets push, despite growth in the industrial segment, overall production down by 1.8% for the year as a whole.

Taiwan’s electronics industry is today dominated by a small number of large groups. In addition to the capital intensive semiconductor and display companies the country also has a significant number of ODMs which hold a major share in the global production of computer and communications products. Taiwanese companies are also important in the production of electronic components. In recent years the Taiwanese electronics industry has undergone a major structural change with the leading domestic companies relocating production offshore, and principally to China to reduce costs. The country has however retained a strong domestic manufacturing presence in particular in the area of semiconductors.
