TOKYO/SEOUL, July 8 (Reuters) - Japan has tightened curbs on exports of high-tech materials used in smartphone displays and chips to South Korea, upping the ante in a decades-old dispute with Seoul over South Koreans forced to work for Japanese firms during World War Two. The export curbs highlight how Japan, the world's third-largest economy, continues to hold sway over a vital corner of the global supply chain. It remains a major player in specialised chip components, even though it was overtaken as a chipmaker years ago by South Korea.
Moody's Investors Service says that Japan's decision on July 1 to tighten controls on exports of key semiconductor and display materials to Korea could disrupt production of such products at Korean technology companies such as Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (SEC, Aa3 stable) and SK Hynix Inc. (Baa2 stable), a credit negative. The Korean manufacturers heavily rely on Japanese producers for input materials. According to the Korea Trade Association, Korea imported 92% of photoresist, 44% of etching gas, and 94% of fluorinated polyimide from Japan in the first five months of 2019.
Japanese share prices struggled to make headway on Monday as uncertainties over the global economy, U.S.-China trade frictions and the U.S. Federal Reserve's policy stance kept many investors on sidelines. Japan's Nikkei share average ended 0.03% higher at 21,124, helped by gains in a few of its heavyweights such as SoftBank Group and Fast Retailing. Investors remain unsure how the United States and China can resolve their disputes over tariffs and technology, and uncertain whether U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese leader Xi Jinping will meet on the sidelines of a Group of 20 summit in Osaka next week.
