PETALING JAYA: Taiwan is one of the world’s top three export countries in the hardware and hand tools sector, which is one of the country’s most prominent industries.

More than half of the well-known international mid-range and high-end hand tool brands are from Taiwan, as Taiwan’s hand tool industry export value surpassed US$3.79 billion (RM16 million) in 2019, the third largest in the world.

Every year, Taiwan’s tool industry rakes in US$4 billion from exports of OEM wrenches and pliers. Nearly 70% of enterprises in the hand tool industry are concentrated in the Taichung and Changhua areas.

According to technical research consulting firm TechNavio, the global hand tool market will have reached US$125.5 billion in scale by 2022. Over 50% of this is taken up by the North American and Europe markets, home of the world’s largest hand tool import and export countries, with vibrant DIY cultures.
