In Dec, the manufacturing sales value rose 0.8%, month-on-month, and 7.5%, year-on-year, to RM72.3 bln. The year-on-year growth was mainly due to a double-digit increase in the sales value of diodes, transistors & semiconductor devices – see table 1. The sales value of the domestic-oriented industries rose 6.6% on a year-on-year basis, while the export-oriented industries grew by 7.9% – see figure 1. For the whole of 2018, manufacturing sales value grew by 7.7% from a year ago, down from the 13.7% growth in 2017.
