Global Technology: Cloud computing – The next frontier
While a solid 26% CAGR for data cited by Cisco is an old theme, what is new is our ability to monetise data, with AI and Machine Learning being the first technology to lower analytics costs, potentially unlocking the potential for 99.5% of data that has remained dark, leading to an accelerating application workload growth and an accelerating compute TAM. Cloud IT infrastructure spending is delivering a 10% CAGR, vs -1.2% CAGR for traditional IT infrastructure, driven by the rising number of connected devices and video applications, proliferation of cloud services for enterprise and consumer, and accelerating AI data analytics.

China Components Sector: PCB leaders rise on 5G and Datacom cycle

We estimate PCB (printed circuit board) content to be almost 5x in 5G BTS vs 4G, besides an enlarged volume on higher coverage density. We estimate the total addressable market in access and transmission network will reach Rmb84 bn/Rmb168 bn in China/worldwide. Assuming that CCL (copper clad laminate, the base material of PCB) accounts for 24% of PCB market value, CCL demand in telecom could reach Rmb20 bn/Rmb40 bn in China/global, among which, high-frequency CCL will likely reach Rmb6 bn/Rmb12 bn and high-speed CCL could reach Rmb10 bn/Rmb20 bn in China/global.

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 Energy Bulletin - Solar: Tight material supply drives up prices

The CQi solar survey reveals upside room for prices in the near future as tight material supply remains and order backlogs grow. Further price hikes in supply chain could hurt solar system developers, and in turn dampen demand and export growth, our industry panel says. Some producers we track are planning a strategic shift to the domestic market.

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.
