Nourished by a stable foundry industry and a strong electrical industry, Sri Lankan light engineering products seem to grow in number every day, in terms of both the number of product types and product units exported.
Here in Sri Lanka, we keep up with the latest developments in the engineering field and duly incorporate them into our production process. Our pillar of strength is our workforce that includes researchers and innovators who are some of the world’s most experienced and knowledgeable.
They are joined by dedicated professionals working in our factories. Providing the Sri Lankan engineering industry with a strong R&D component, the major universities and research facilities in the country are constantly exploring new avenues, expanding horizons and paving the way to the highly advanced engineering industry in the country. Our production process uses cutting-edge technology and machinery to produce quality end-products. Our products are monitored and evaluated from the start to finish and there is no room for error in our factories. That is why the Sri Lankan engineering industry is soaring high, with products exported to even the farthest corners of the world.
The light engineering industry is identified as one of the most promising emerging export avenues in Sri Lanka, according to research conducted in the export field. Staying true to this, the light engineering industry did grow at a stunningly fast pace, catering to global markets and steadily growing its reputation.
In 1990, Sri Lanka exported US$ 3,225,826 worth of electrical and electronic products to Germany. By 2000, it escalated up to US$ 18,042,488. In 2018, Switzerland was at the top of the market destinations, consuming US$ 71, 830, 408 worth of electrical and electronic products from Sri Lanka. In 2019, light engineering products exported from Sri Lanka amounted to US$306 million. This is a steep growth from US$ 213 million in 2017.
The major markets that Sri Lanka caters to at the moment are India, China, Netherlands, Italy, Germany, Maldives, Singapore, South Korea, the USA and France.
The Sri Lankan engineering industry is booming at present and there is ample potential for it to grow further. With engineering needs and the demand for related products skyrocketing worldwide, Sri Lanka will emerge as one of the largest exporters of engineering products. With exceptional human and material resources at her disposal, the day Sri Lanka becomes the world’s largest exporter of engineering products will arrive sooner than later.
