  • Would China Buying More Semiconductors from US Reduce Trade Deficit?
    Market Realist15 days ago

    Would China Buying More Semiconductors from US Reduce Trade Deficit?

    Given that global semiconductor revenues reached $400 billion in 2017, China’s (FXI) proposal to increase semiconductor imports from the US appears positive. If China buys more chips from the US, it would shift its chip purchases from South Korea (EWY) and Taiwan to the US. More than 95% of the semiconductor revenue in South Korea comes from Samsung (SSNLF) and SK Hynix, both of which manufacture memory chips. Of the five companies, two manufacture application-specific standard products, the volume of which is relatively modest compared to the trade volume between the US and China.

    How Could a Memory Collaboration with Intel Benefit China?

    Whereas China (FXI) is the largest consumer of semiconductors in the world, it meets most of its needs through semiconductor imports. The Chinese government plans to invest $160 billion to develop its domestic semiconductor industry, and Tsinghua Unigroup is the biggest beneficiary of this grant. The company spent $24 billion on a NAND plant, which could start manufacturing 32-layer 3D NAND chips by the end of 2018 and ramp up production in 2019. However, China would still be four years behind its South Korean (EWY) competitor, Samsung (SSNLF).

    More Women Workers Can Help Offset Aging Populations

    Global economies have another lever to pull to help offset some of the pressures of their aging populations: The power of women. Some governments have been working to shore up women's participation in the economy, which, if successful, should boost their credit rating, Moody's wrote in a note last week. Increasing women's participation in the labor force will help economic growth by partially offsetting the declining workforce as populations age, Moody's says.
