Asia Semiconductor Sector: Consolidating landscape and solid demand support price recovery

We update our raw wafer supply/demand model, and maintain the supply side expectation for global 12" raw wafer capacity growth slowing down from an 8% CAGR in 2017-19 to a 3% CAGR in 2020-22. However, we are lifting 12" wafer demand from 1% CAGR in 2017-19 to 10% CAGR in 2020-22 on the back of product drivers including the 5G smartphone ramp, continued WFH demand, data centre investment reacceleration, and now supplemented by improving auto/industrial demand recovery. We expect 12" raw wafer utilisation to improve from 80-85% in 2019/20 to 92%/97% in 2021/22. For the mature nodes, 8" raw wafer utilisation should be at 95% while 6" at 80-85%.

China Internet Sector: Emerging Consumer Survey 2021 deep dive

As the Credit Suisse Research Institute publishes the 2021 edition of the Emerging Consumer Survey, we take a deep-dive into China's internet space. For this sector, the increased adoption of online services across almost all categories has been the trend during the pandemic and is here to stay, reflecting the structural changes and the lasting effects COVID -19 has brought to consumer behaviours. We discover structural changes including rise of e–grocery, growing popularity of online games and increased acceptance of online education.

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 Lending Lens - Southbound: Immature domestic retail investors' institutionalization may contribute to H-share volatility

The accelerating institutionalization of Chinese retail investors, seen in CQi surveys and Wind data, is likely to provide steady inflows to both the A- and H-share markets in the foreseeable future. However, our study suggests that institutionalization is still at an early stage.

CQi Business Monitor - January survey finds no respite for global shipping, PPI turns positive on input cost inflation

Our survey in January finds the global shipping crunch showing little sign of easing. Shortages of vessels, containers and workers, compounded by robust US consumer demand, created serious logistics bottlenecks. Higher factory gate prices charged by our SMEs are reflected in PPI, which turned positive in January, for the first time in 19 months.

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.
