Thailand Market at a glance

A country evolved from rice fields to production plants

Thailand is the second-biggest food exporter in Asia, trailing only China. It is a major producer and exporter of cassava, rubber, sugar, fishery exports, rice and grains, and many other food products. Thailand’s economy is heavily dependent on exports of goods and services, which account for about 78% of its gross domestic product (GDP).

In recent years, high-tech manufacturing such as integrated circuits, electrical products, and automotive are leading Thailand's strong growth in exports. Thailand also has one of the world’s strongest tourism industries, which account for approximately 7.3% of its GDP.

Similar to its other Asian neighbours that have developed their manufacturing capabilities, Thailand is also emerging as a major player in the integrated circuits and electronics manufacturing industries.

Thailand is part of the ASEAN Exchanges – a collaboration among Bursa Malaysia, Hanoi Stock Exchange, Hochiminh Stock Exchange, Indonesia Stock Exchange, The Philippine Stock Exchange Inc, Singapore Exchange and The Stock Exchange of Thailand.
