Abstract: This paper attempts to analyze the market of Malaysia’s value added market. Malaysia’s value added market was booming strongly before the recession but has since shown signs of recovery. The recovery has been attributed to the promotion from the furniture promotion council. The main component in Malaysia’s value added sector is rubber board. Rubber board plans a large part in MDF and furniture manufacturing and the increase of price in recent years has decreased the profit. The trade data is often the source to explain growth and trends of wood manufacturing sector. Malaysia is not the only country that has moved away from primary to value added production. China has emerged as a major competitor in the area for secondary and tertiary production.
