China Chemical Sector: Polyester filament yarns: Consolidating into a new era

We expect polyester margins to bottom out and continue to expand due to reaccelerated demand growth, industry consolidation and increasing raw material supplies post COVID-19. We expect global/domestic polyester demand growth to re-accelerate to 4%/5% CAGRs in 2021-22, driven by 7%/11% CAGRs in global/domestic sportswear demand. With an estimated 4% CAGR in global capacity for 2020-22, global supply-demand should be largely balanced.

Global Telecoms Sector: 5G: Huawei uncertainty triggers capex cuts

The 5G iPhone launch is set to be a key catalyst for 5G uptake, particularly in the US. While applications are potentially exciting, there is no 5G 'killer app' for mass-market consumers as yet, in the way that streaming media was for 4G uptake. As a result, our global team finds that most 5G launches so far have focused on high-volume data bundles and 5G handsets, rather than apps, limiting expected FY19- 24 revenue growth to just 1.3% p.a. Generating a return on over US$958 bn in capex is, therefore, a challenge and helps explain the sector's poor YTD share price performance.‏‏‎

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 NEV Market Monitor – Tesla begins to export made-in-Shanghai vehicles; its price cuts in China viewed well

Tesla begins to export China-made Model 3 vehicles to Europe, and our source says about 20% of its Shanghai plant's capacity will go to export. Tesla's latest price cut may boost sales strongly and bring new challenges to its Chinese rivals. The panel remains positive on 4Q outlook, expecting more government procurement and policy incentives.

CQi Materials - 4Q expectations soften

CQi-tracked materials panels saw a mixed demand picture in September: cement and steel outperformed, while copper underperformed. With the property tightening, most panels lowered their growth expectation for 4Q, although they still expect positive YoY demand growth. Steel mills' high output may put pressure on their profitability in the winter.

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.
