This study attempts to examine the effects of industrialization on land prices in two selected industrial areas in the District of Kubang Pasu. The industrial areas are Bandar Baru Darulaman Industrial Park and Bukit Kayu Hitam Industrial Estate. Using the area sampling method, a number of 43 manufacturing establishments are selected as the unit of analysis, 31 of which own industrial sites in Bukit Kayu Hitam while the remaining 12 operate in Bandar Baru Darulaman. Data collection is done through secondary research and primary research. Secondary research is carried out in order to obtain the profile of land use pattern in Kubang Pasu District. Data is collected using a structured questionnaire which would then be used to create an equation model to identify the factors that influence industrial land price. The model is estimated using the the OLS. The study finds that the agricultural sector remains the most important factor in contributing to the economy of Kubang Pasu. However the land use for industrial purposes is increasing due to the opening of more industrial areas such as those in Kota Perdana, Bukit Kayu Hitam. Based on the frequency analysis done, it shows that most of the industries (79.1%) are owned by local investors. Low land price is identified to be the dominant factor in influencing the investors' decision to locate their industries in the research areas. The model specification finds four factors, (1) the date of land transaction, (2) company ownership, (3) the industrial lot size, and (4) quit rent imposed to the investors, to be significantly related to the determination of industrial land price in the research areas.
