(25 August 2021, Kuala Lumpur) Did you know over 50% of the faucets in the world come from Taiwan? Patrick
Wang, Project Manager of Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) mentioned that sanitary
equipment is one of the hidden gems of Taiwan. Since the 1950s, factories in Dingfan area in Changhua, Taiwan
started to transform product types to valves and faucets, making Changhua known as the hub of the water and
Taiwan Excellence Building Materials Online Product Launch was held on 25th of August to highlight Taiwan’s
most innovative building materials related companies. The event was jointly organized by Bureau of Foreign
Trade, TAITRA and Plumbing Association of Taiwan.
Bill Lee, President of Building Material Distributors Association of Malaysia (BMDAM), in his speed during the
event empathized on Malaysia being greatly impacted by the pandemic; in particular, the construction sector
being hard hit due to restrictions on on-site work. He revealed that the value of constructure work in Malaysia
registered negative growth of -14.2% in Q4 2020 but has improved slightly to -10.5% in Q1 2021 (amounting to
RM 31.4 billion).
Although the industry is currently in a downturn now, Lee mentioned that building affordable housing is a
long-term project in Malaysia; with 1 million affordable houses to be built over 10 years start from 2018. With that,
Lee expressed his delight in being able to witness the entry of these global brands into the Malaysian market. He
believes that the introduction of new technologies that will reduce costs and human-to-human contact are going
to be highly sought after by the construction industry. In addition, environmentally friendly approaches,
particularly in terms of energy, water and material have always been a common goal for the market and Taiwan
makers have many products that answer this need.
