AUTOMOTIVE
ELECTRONICS
The utilization of electronics has become more
prevalent across a variety of automobile systems.
Electronics systems have improved automobile
performance, safety, comfort, and efficiency.
Moreover, the trend of alternative fuel, fuel efficiency
and emissions standards are important factors
driving demand of automotive electronics. The
global demand for automotive electronics systems
is expected to reach US$191.3 billion in 2013 and is
forecast to reach US$314.4 billion in 2020.
Innovation and development in automotive
electronics have expanded to support the high
demand for smarter vehicles. Automotive electronic
components can be utilized in many systems
including power or engine controlling systems,
safety systems, driver assistance, passenger comfort,
information systems, and in-car entertainment.
As the major automotive production hub of ASEAN,
Thailand is one of the largest automotive electronics
markets in the world. Industry analysts have indicated
that there is still significant opportunity to invest in
automotive electronics in Thailand. There are leading
automotive electronics manufacturers in Thailand,
such as Toyota Tsusho, who produces embedded
software for automotive applications, and other wellknown local manufacturers, including Omron and
Mizuki.

OPPORTUNITIES
Thailand is a vehicle production base in ASEAN, with
the largest amount of vehicle assembly in the region.
Although many leading vehicle manufacturers
and auto parts and components producers have
production facilities in the country, some auto parts
are still imported from overseas. Opportunities exist
for foreign suppliers to manufacture electronic fuelinjection systems, substrates for catalytic converters,
continuously variable transmissions, electronic
stability controls and regenerative braking systems,
among numerous other products in Thailand. More
R&D, design and testing centers are also needed,
despite major players such as Yamaha, Bridgestone,
Maxxis, and Michelin operating such facilities in
Thailand already.

Hi-Tech Vehicle Parts and Components


Projects in high-tech vehicle parts and components
manufacturing are considered priority activities by
the Thailand Board of Investment (BOI), which means
they are exempt from machinery import duties and
from corporate income tax for 8 years, regardless
of location within the country. Some examples of
eligible activities include electronic fuel-injection
systems, ABS brake systems, substrates for catalytic
converters, automatic transmissions, continuously
variable transmissions (CVT), traction motors for
automobiles (e.g. hybrid car, fuel cell), electronic
stability control (ESC), and regenerative braking
systems.

NGV Car
The Thai Ministry of Energy supports fuel-efficient
transportation through a natural gas vehicle
(NGV) initiative. This initiative includes natural gas
subsidization through PTT Public Company Ltd.,
reduced import duty on NGV tanks from 17% to 10%
in 2012, and reduced import duty on NGV control
system parts and components, from 35% to 10%.

Eco-Cars
Eco-cars continue to receive incentives to promote
the growth of the eco-car market locally and
abroad. For instance, the incentives will be applied
exclusively to materials that cannot be produced
locally. Incentives include duty reduction of up
to 90% granted for two years, with annual review.
The new measure is intended to help eco-car
manufacturers by lowering their production costs
and reducing their burden in sourcing parts that are
not available or locally produced in Thailand. This
measure also encourages more investment in ecocar parts production, which provides the country
with economies of scale and greater competitive
advantage in the global eco-car production business.
The BOI approved eco-car projects from Nissan,
Honda, Suzuki, Mitsubishi and Toyota. Specific
models such as the Nissan March, Honda Brio, Suzuki
Swift, and Mitsubishi Mirage are currently being
manufactured in Thailand. Additionally, Thailands
Ministry of Finance has reduced the excise taxes on
eco-cars from 30% to 17%.

Passenger Cars
Although Thailand has a strong focus on pickup
trucks, passenger cars receive similar favorable
treatment in manufacturing promotion. The
requirement for the promotion of passenger car
manufacturing includes a minimum capacity for the
approved models of 100,000 units per-year within 5
years and a minimum investment, exclusive of land
cost and working capital, of no less than US$500
million (THB15 billion). Projects that meet these
criteria are eligible for a five-year corporate income
tax holiday and exemption from import duties on
machinery regardless, of location within the country.

E-85 Fuel
Thailands Ministry of Finance has reduced the excise
taxes on cars using E85 fuel to 22%, 27% and 32%,
depending on engine size.

Big-Bike, 4-Stroke Engine Motorcycles


(from 248 CC)
Regardless of plant locations, big-bike motorcycle
manufacturing activities will be eligible for
exemption from import duty on machinery. For
projects that include engine manufacturing starting
from machining key parts, such as cylinder heads,
crankcases, crankshaft, camshaft, cylinder block and
connecting rod, the corporate income tax holiday
will be offered for 3-8 years, depending on the plant
location.

Vehicle Tires
Firms manufacturing vehicle tires are exempt from
machinery import duties and corporate income tax
for 8 years, regardless of zone.

According to the Excise Department, Ministry of


Finance, the current automotive excise taxes scheme
is detailed as follows:

Thailand has been in the auto businesses for more


than 50 years. Over time, a dense and capable supplier
community has developed. The Laem Chabang deepsea port allows for efficient export, and many well
managed industrial estates have grown in automotive
clusters that facilitate near- sourcing.
- Mr. Martin Apfel, President of Southeast Asia Operation, General Motors -

WHY THAILAND
According to the Automotive Industry Master Plan
(2012-2016), Thailands automotive industry will
become a global green automotive production
base. This development will expand the automotive
industry of Thailand from the production hub of
ASEAN to the global market.
Nearly all of the worlds major automakers, assemblers,
and parts and components manufacturers have
established manufacturing facilities in Thailand. All
of leading Japanese vehicle producers have opened
production sites in the country, as have major
American automotive firms such as Ford Motors
and General Motors, as well as German companies
Daimler - makers of Mercedes Benz - and Bayerische
Motoren Werke, better-known as BMW.

Promising Investment Destination

Thailand is an excellent location as a world-class


automotive production base. Almost all of the worlds
major automotive manufacturers have factories
based in the country. Situated in a strategic location
in the center of Southeast Asia, Thailand provides
easy access to regional markets. Growth in domestic
demand has bolstered the robust export market
for the Thai automotive industry. These factors
contribute to the evident opportunities for foreign
investors to enter the market.

Additionally, there are tax and non-tax incentives that


the Thai Government offers to the manufacturers of
vehicles, vehicle parts, and for automotive R&D and
testing. Non-tax incentives include land ownership
rights for foreign investors, permission to bring in
foreign experts and technicians, and work permit
and visa facilitation for foreign expat employees.
The Thai Government also does not impose export
requirements, local content requirements, location
requirements, or foreign equity restrictions on
manufacturers.

Abundant skilled-labor supply

Thailand provides a highly efficient and affordable


workforce. In 2012, more than 500,000 workers were
employed in the automotive sector in the country.
Thai laborers have comparative advantages in high
skill levels and quality over most other countries in
the region.

Auto Parts Clusters

The automotive industry has been a priority sector


for the economy of Thailand. Thailand has shown
impressive growth in this sector. With government
support, auto parts clusters were developed to
tighten business connections between automotive
firms and their suppliers in enhanced communication,
lower logistics costs and improved flow of products.

Excellent Infrastructure

Thailand is a transportation hub in the region;


the country provides world-class infrastructure to
support convenient logistics. With extensive road
networks through the east-west and north-south
corridors facilitating access to all nearby countries,
Bangkoks Suvarnabhumi International Airport, Laem
Chabang a leading deep-sea port and rail links
to all regions across the country, Thailand offers
manufacturers cheap, easy, and efficient logistics.

Thailands Trade Liberalization

Thailand has bilateral free trade agreements with


many countries, including Japan, India, Australia,
New Zealand, and members of ASEAN, extending
trade opportunities into the global marketplace.
Furthermore, the ASEAN Free Trade Agreement
(AFTA) will expand the market of Thailand to the
10 member countries of ASEAN that collectively
comprise a market of 600 million consumers. Tariffs
for auto parts exported to ASEAN nations were
eliminated entirely in 2010.

The establishment of the ASEAN Economic


Community (AEC) in 2015 will serve as a massive
single market that is fully integrated into the
global economy. The AEC will open new doors to
manufacturers by transforming ASEAN into a region
with free movement of goods, capital, services,
investment and workforce.

Excellent Government Support

The Thai government has a mission to promote the


country as a global green automotive production
base. The Master Plan for Automotive Industry (20122016) was developed with a view of establishing the
Kingdom as one of the worlds key manufacturing
centers by increasing vehicle output by an average
of 10% annually; and also aims at making the
country one of the top ten auto-manufacturing
countries, a goal that has already been achieved with
Thailands rank of ninth, globally, in 2012. To support
automotive investment, BOI has a philosophy to
promote liberalization and transparency, providing
equal treatment to all market players. The country has
created the most attractive business environment
for the auto industry and has prepared essential
resources for every type of automotive business,
including developed basic infrastructure, quality
labor force, as well as strong upstream industries and
supporting industries.

ATTRACTIVE
INVESTMENT
INCENTIVES
The BOI offers a range of fiscal and nontax incentives for investments based on
location. Tax incentives include exemption
or reduction of import duties on machinery
and raw materials, and corporate income
tax exemptions and reductions. Non-tax
incentives include permission to bring in
foreign workers, own land and take or remit
foreign currency abroad. Additionally, projects
in any manufacturing and some ser vice
sectors are entitled to majority or 100% foreign
ownership.
As indicated in the section above on opportunities,
the BOI has created several packages that target
different aspects of automobile manufacturing. In
addition, the BOI has classified 11 categories of vehicle
parts (including tires), as well as LNG or CNG containers,
engines, parts and equipment for NGVs, and machines
or equipment for NGV service stations, as priority
activities. As such, projects in these activities are granted
exemption of import duties on machinery for all zones,
eight-year corporate income tax exemption for all zones
(subject to the corporate income tax exemption cap), and all
relevant location-based incentives.
Of these 11 categories, six automotive activities (automatic
transmissions, CVTs, traction motors for automobiles such as
hybrid cars and fuel cell cars, electronic stability controls or ESCs,
regenerative braking systems, and rubber tires for vehicles) are
eligible for the BOIs special incentives promoting sustainable
development, if the investor submits an application by the end of
December 2013 .
The incentives for these activities include an eight-year corporate
income tax holiday without being subject to a corporate income tax
exemption cap; a five-year 50% reduction of corporate income tax on
net profit following the expiration of the corporate income tax holiday;
exemption of import duty on machinery; a 10-year double deduction of
transportation, electricity and water supply costs; deduction from net profit
of 25% of investment in infrastructure installation and construction costs,
in addition to normal capital depreciation. Projects can be located anywhere
except Bangkok.
