The manufacturing industries in Malaysia became a significant contributor to the country's economy since the 1960s. The growth and structural changes in the manufacturing sector over the past forty years can be grouped into three main areas such as the resource-based industries, labour-intensive industries and lastly the value added capital and knowledge-based industries. The purpose of this study is to examine the growth of potentials of the manufacturing industry of Sarawak. In order to get the essence of potentials of this sector, the questionnaire survey method was used to examine R&D capability, growth trend of skills of workforces and technical capability in Kuching and Samarahan area. Questionnaire was sent to manufacturing companies to be filled. The surveyed data was analyzed by using standard statistical tools. The result shows that most of the companies are non R&D. The major percent of manufacturing process are dependent on manual and semi automated operation system. The skill levels of workforces are significantly low compare to Peninsular. This result indicates, the importance of R&D to the ~~eyed industries is less compare to the main stream of Malaysian manufacturing industries. It is recommended that industries operating in Kuching need to set up R&D department and install automatic machineries in order to increase their performance. Moreover, the industries shall increase their skill level for increasing the manufacturing performance.
