Tool and Die Industry Overview

The economy of the Philippines is growing – and shows no sign of slowing down. With the country poised to become a significant manufacturing hub in ASEAN, the Philippines is an increasingly attractive destination for foreign investment. While industries like Automotive, Aerospace, and Electronics may be higher profile, the growth of these sectors will herald real opportunities in the Tool and Die industry.

The Tool and Die industry uses general and specialized metal cutting technology to fabricate dies, molds and tooling to convert raw materials into a desired shape. Our post-cutting facilities are served by vacuum heat treatment and physical vapor deposition facilities to key sectors like Automotive and Electronics, who need a reliable and cost-efficient source of production inputs.

The strong base of SME metalworking companies in the Philippines makes the rapid mass production of durable products possible.

Despite the presence of local manufacturers, there is still a significant amount of imported tool and die products making their way into the country – indicating that local supply remains insufficient to cover domestic demand.

With a talented pool of engineering graduates, strong public-private partnerships, and a commitment to accelerated development of the industry, there’s never been a better time to make it happen in the Philippines.
