Despite a growth in services, manufacturing remains a key economic sector in Malta. The industry is a critical contributor to economic growth, particularly in terms of gross value-added and employment. Change lies ahead, as R&D and innovation drives new niche sectors to complement more traditional modes of production.

The re-invention of Maltese manufacturing is improving its competitiveness in today’s global market, with a shift towards higher value-added activities through investment in R&D and product and process re-design. This momentum is evident in several local firms, as well as in the number of international firms operating from the island

Manufacturing continues to attract a significant inflow of FDI, facilitated by the highly beneficial sector-specific support measures extended by the Government. We are also seeing further diversification within the sector, with an increase in operations with a high research and development component, such as: automotive components; medical devices; pharmaceuticals; electronic components; and high quality injection moulding.
