Health technology drives SilTerra Malaysia’s new revenue stream

SilTerra Malaysia, a semiconductor company, has embarked on its transformation towards developing cutting edge health technology.

Ranked by IC Insight, an established industry analyst, as the top 16th global semiconductor focused company, the company sees potential in the life sciences market which is expected to reach $25.60 billion by 2023 with a CAGR of 15.3%.

“This is an important aspect of our overall strategy to improve the quality of our revenue stream,” says Firdaus Abdullah, currently SilTerra’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) who has been instrumental in leading the company into profitability since his tenure in 2015.

In addition, SilTerra is actively developing nano-scaled biosensors that can be incorporated into IOT (Internet of Things) and POC (point-of-care) devices. The devices will allow direct access to detect and diagnose diseases such as dengue, malaria and cancer without having to wait for lengthy lab results, bringing groundbreaking efficiencies to the forefront of healthcare delivery.
