BMI's View

Recent developments support our view that Malaysia's real GDP growth will continue to slow in 2012. Should global economic headwinds intensify over the coming months, this would increase the risk of a recession in Malaysia, which will impact heavily on the country’s steel industry, which made a full recovery from the effects of the 2008 financial crisis. Malaysian manufacturing output in January 2012 grew by a modest 1.2% year-on-year (y-o-y) following 4.4% in December 2011. Malaysian basic metal and fabricated metal products output rose by 5.9% y-o-y while the sales value of basic iron and steel product manufacture totalled MYR1.9bn (US$621.6mn), increasing by 8.8% y-o-y.
