China Healthcare Sector: 2021 outlook: Strong growth ahead, especially for CRO, biotech, and medical devices

Whilst we have a positive view on the sector, post the strong outperformance of the sector (rallied ~55/70% in A-/H-share in 2020), our sector and stock selections are based on clear growth profile and identified catalysts. We are most bullish on the biotech, contract research organisation (CRO), and medical device subsectors on their potential for continued innovation and relatively low policy exposure risk. We estimate innovative drug sales in China could grow at CAGR of ~18% over 2021-23, outpacing the overall drug market growth.

China Passenger Vehicle Sector: 2021 outlook

We expect China passenger vehicle demand to increase 15% YoY in 2021, well above auto makers and industry associations' relatively conservative forecast of 7.5-9% YoY growth. Key drivers are (a) cyclical demand recovery after three years of continuous volume decline in 2018-20, which is estimated to boost 2021 PV annual demand by ~6 pp. (b) low-base effect amid COVID-19—volume down 45% YoY in 1Q20, which stand-alone offers ~12 pp annual growth for full year 2021.

CIO View: Hong Kong readies to make tech world its oyster

The introduction of the Hang Seng TECH Index (HSTI) is an important statement of intent that dovetails with both our thoughts on key issues and on our investment preferences – both in terms of geography and sector. While we remain neutral on equities overall, we have continued to advocate being selective about key exposures. The HSTI is certainly worth considering on multiple fronts.

CIO View: Lightening tightening

We assess the prospects for the Asian high yield space in the context of its sharp re-bound. The segment remains attractive, but also plagued by significant uncertainty and risks. Our base case points to investors enjoying a total return of around 8% over the next 12 months, which warrants our neutral stance on this asset class. Nevertheless, we remain mindful of developments in a key risk area – US-China tensions.

CQi Business Monitor – Private firms finished 2020 strong, but higher input costs begin to pinch

Private companies tracked by CQi are on a much sounder footing in 4Q than in the previous quarters of 2020. Domestic and overseas orders continued to rebound and firms' financial conditions further improved. However, rising input costs, reflected in soaring commodity prices, are increasingly a concern for small businesses.

Rethinking Retirement

Increasing life expectancies and falling fertility rates have led to aging populations becoming a reality in many countries across the globe. Population projections suggest that, by 2032, the total number of people aged 65+ in China will surpass the number of people between 10 and 25 years of age. 

Changing demographic profiles are putting pressure on existing pension systems around the world. For example, in 2050, China would have faced public pension spending of an estimated 10% of GDP, more than doubling from 4% in 2015-16. 

In an in-depth study, the Credit Suisse Research Institute (CSRI) is calling for an urgent rethink on retirement provisions in the face of aging societies.
