Thailand Investment Opportunities

In Machinery and Metal Working

Opportunities in machinery
Opportunities in Machinery

  • Thailand continues to industrialize, but is dependent on foreign industrial machinery for immediate future.

  • Industries in Thailand developed over the past decade with parallel increases in demand for machinery imports.

  • High demand for:

    • Food processing and farm machinery

    • Alternative energy/energy conservation machinery

    • Textile machinery

    • Automotive machinery

    • Mould & Die Industry

Year 2006 (Oct):

  • Japan 27%

  • China 17%

  • USA 10%

  • Taiwan 7%

Million USD


Opportunities for agro machinery 1
Opportunities for Agro-Machinery (1)

In 2005, over US$ 54 million in agricultural machinery was imported into Thailand for such diverse uses as soil preparation, harvesting, sorting grinding and milling.

Agro industry machinery needs
Agro-Industry Machinery Needs

Thailand needs to continually improve to remain competitive and meet increasing international standards

Large and growing markets for:

  • Farm machinery

  • Food processing machinery

Opportunities for food processing machinery
Opportunities for Food Processing Machinery

  • High demand for such machinery products as drying, cooling and purifying machines; fruit, vegetable and cereal processing machines, and also for animal feeding.

  • More than 9,000 food-processing companies create a high demand for packaging machinery such as filling, closing, sealing, wrapping and labeling machines.

  • Demand for 600,000 tons of tinplate per year for packaging of agriculture products and canned foods

Textile machinery
Textile machinery

  • Thailand dependent on imported textile machinery, particularly bleaching, dyeing, printing, finishing machinery.

  • Thailand imported over $500 million of textile production machinery in 2004

Textile Machinery Opportunities

Investment opportunities also in other types of textile/garment machinery needed: Packaging, Test and control equipment, Production machinery

  • Machinery for recycling businesses

  • Machinery for metal industries

  • Electrical control systems

  • Large plastic injectors

Alternative Energy/Energy Conservation Machinery Investment Opportunities

  • Manufacture of energy-saving machinery/equipment

  • Manufacture of machinery/equipment using alternative energy

Mould die industry

Mould & Die Industry Opportunities

Cabinet’s Support on National Mould & Die Industry

  • The year 2004 –2009Promotion Period

  • Objectives

  • Development of 5 Excellence Mould & Die Industry Centers

  • Leverage 20 educational institutes related to Mould & Die Industry

  • Leverage the standard of Thai mould & die industry to be in line with leading industrial countries
