Severe Floods Impact Malaysian Manufacturing

By: SiliconExpert on January 10th, 2022

Heavy rains have swept across much of Malaysia causing severe flash floods and displacing thousands. With more than 30 districts across the country being impacted by the flooding, the Malaysian Disaster Management Agency has reported the displacement of over 100,000 people. 

Malaysia is considered a critical part of the global electronics supply chain and serves as hub for semiconductor packaging, making up a tenth of the sector’s global trade. These floods are likely to compound the existing supply chain bottlenecks already impacting the industry.       

We have put together a list of businesses reporting damage and disruptions below:
