TrendForce Says the Chinese Government Continues “Big Fund” to Support Key Semiconductor Sectors in China Including Memory and IC Design

TAIPEI, Taiwan--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#5G--China’s semiconductor industry has been thriving since 2015 driven by the Chinese government’s supportive policy and industry fund, with the revenue expected to exceed RMB 620 billion in 2018. According to TrendForce’s latest report Breakdown Analysis of China’s Semiconductor Industry, the Chinese government will continue supporting heavily in this industry at levels of central government and local authorities. In addition to assisting weak yet significant nodes in the industry chain, the National IC Investment Fund (called the "Big Fund") will mainly focus on three key sectors in the coming years, including memory, SiC/GaN compound semiconductor, and IC design with its application in IoT, 5G, AI, smart vehicles, etc.

The year 2014 is a turning point for China’s semiconductor industry with the government’s announcement of National IC Industry Development Outline in June and the “Big Fund" in September, points out by Jeter Teo, research director of TrendForce. The government used to offer research and development rewards, tax reduction and land subsidies, but this is the first time for the state to set investment fund and adopt market-oriented approaches like mergers and acquisitions to enhance the manufacturing capacity and international competitiveness of China's semiconductor industry.

With the support of the “Big Fund" by far, Tsinghua Unigroup bought Spreadtrum and RDA, Jiangsu Changjiang Electronics Technology Co., Ltd (JCET) acquired STATS ChipPAC and grew to a global top 3 IC testing and packaging company, Tongfu Microelectronics Co., Ltd (TFME) launched new joint venture combining AMD’s high-volume assembly, test and packaging facilities (ATMP) . In addition, steps have been taken to increase domestic IC production. As the result, China’s semiconductor industry has made progress regarding both quality and quantity, shortening the gap between China and other foreign rivals.

The first phase of “Big Fund” invests mainly on IC manufacturing, while the second phase will have higher investment proportion on IC design

By September 2017, the first phase of the “Big Fund” has raised RMB 138.72 billion, a total investment in 55 projects, reports TrendForce. The promised funding is RMB 100.3 billion and the actual investment is RMB 65.3 billion, of which IC manufacturing accounts for the largest proportion (65%). At present, the second phase of the “Big Fund” is being raised, which is estimated to reach RMB 150-200 billion. The investment projects will also be adjusted. TrendForce forecast estimates that the proportion in IC design will increase to 20%-25 %, and the investment projects will also be expanded to potential startups.

On the other hand, China’s strategy of developing domestic semiconductor industry has witnessed a clear trend - the central government drives local development. By June 2017, the amount of local semiconductor industry investment funds has reached RMB 514.5 billion in line with the “Big Fund”, of which the largest one accounts for RMB 50 billion. In response to the central government's strategy, local authorities have put forward special policies for the semiconductor industry, which cover funding, research and development, investment, innovation and talent, etc. This shows that local authorities not only have the determination to develop semiconductor industry, but also initiative substantial practical support.

In addition, driven by local governments’ active involvement in semiconductor industry, some cities will grow more prominent, which will also lead to changes in the China’s semiconductor industry structure in the coming years, points out TrendForce. Hefei, Xiamen and Jinjiang are expected to emerge as major industrial regions of China's new generation of semiconductor industry.

For the further details of the press release and the following figures – Figure 1: Investment Proportion of National "Big Fund" in Industry Chain (by September 2017) and Figure 2: Revenue ranking for the semiconductor industry of China's major provinces and cities in 2016 – please visit:

China E-Cigarettes Market Report 2017 – A Market With Massive Potential But Unusual Challenges – Research and Markets

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "E-Cigarettes: China: A Market With Massive Potential But Unusual Challenges" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

In this report, we take an in-depth look at the market in China. The world's most highly populated country is for now a largely untapped potential market for e-cigarettes, despite most of the world's vaping hardware being manufactured there. The prevalence of smoking among men, the cheapness of traditional cigarettes supplied by a state monopoly industry, and the lack of desire in most smokers to give up all contribute to resistance to switching to electronic devices.

Report Findings

  • Though China produces most of the hardware for the global e-cigarette market, its domestic market is very small, estimated at around $175m in 2016. In a population of almost 1.4bn, there are an estimated 1m regular vapers.
  • Of these, roughly 60% use open systems.
  • Online distribution accounts for 80% of the market. It is dominated by non-specialist trading websites dealing in home-grown Chinese brands.
  • The push factor from traditional cigarettes to e-cigs for price reasons is weak as the cost of smoking has fallen in real terms.
  • Although e-cig products are cheaper in China than in most other countries, they are relatively costly in relation to earnings.
  • Among Chinese users, vaping is considered more as a lifestyle or fashion choice than as a way to quit smoking, and vape stores have adopted a US West Coast style to exploit this.

Key Topics Covered:

1. Executive summary

2. Market size

3. Vaper population

4. Form factors

5. Distribution

6. Companies operating in China

7. Comments on online pricing

8. Tobacco as a factor in the market

China and North America TV Shipments Fall Sharply in Q3 2017, IHS Markit Says

Much slower retail price erosion -- due to increased LCD panel prices -- weighs on unit volume, though worldwide TV revenues rise for first time in three years

LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The impact of higher LCD TV panel prices at the beginning of 2017 continued to weigh on retail demand for LCD TVs into Q3 by way of slower retail price erosion, particularly in China and North America, the two most price sensitive regions. However, demand in other regions showed signs of growth, especially in Europe and most emerging regions.

According to the latest findings from TV Sets Intelligence Service by IHS Markit, global TV shipments declined 5 percent year-over-year to 54.8 million units in Q3 2017, while revenues increased by 1 percent and average selling prices were up 6 percent due to growth in average size and 4K mix improvement.

“Demand in China has been negatively impacted by much slower retail pricing erosion for TVs, and fewer promotions as brands seek to protect profit margins.” said Paul Gagnon, executive director of TV sets research at IHS Markit. “Likewise, the high price sensitivity and minor price erosion in North America led to a 10 percent decline in year-over-year shipments in Q3 ahead of the important Black Friday holiday shopping season. We expect that the more conservative promotions on Black Friday for TVs will diminish the potential volume growth this year in the US.”

Average size growth has also slowed in recent quarters as the slower price erosion impacts consumer purchasing decisions when deciding how large a screen size to trade up to, IHS Markit analysis shows. The average size of a TV shipped in Q3 2017 increased 1.7 percent to 42.1 inches, although when combined with the much reduced price erosion, helped TV revenues increase year-over-year for the first time in three years. The growth of 4K also contributed to the positive revenue result, with 4K mix increasing to 35 percent of units and 64 percent of revenues.

On a brand basis, due to the poor demand results in China, Chinese TV brands have been aggressively pursuing more business overseas, IHS Markit says. Hisense and TCL both significantly increased market share worldwide due to strong growth outside of China. Samsung and LG Electronics are the top TV brands on a unit and revenue share basis worldwide, but TCl and Hisense have risen to numbers three and four respectively, both increasing share from a year ago to their highest TV shipment share yet. Samsung and LGE each also led on a revenue basis, while Sony grew its revenue share at number three to the highest level since 2011 on growing premium TV sales, including OLED TV.

China B2C E-Commerce Sales Forecasts 2017-2021 – Research and Markets

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "China B2C E-Commerce Sales Forecasts: 2017 to 2021" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

China is the world's largest B2C E-Commerce market, accounting for a double-digit share of global online sales. More than half a billion people shop online in China, with the E-Commerce share of total retail sales reaching twice as high as the global average. Within the next few years, China is expected to set a new record by generating E-Commerce sales of over 1 trillion Euros, including B2C and C2C online retail. Five out of six original sources cited in this publication concur with this prediction, although disagree on the specific year when this milestone will be reached. Another common projection is the decline of year-on-year growth rates over the forecast period compared to the previous years due to increased maturity of the market, although the compound annual growth rate in the period from 2016 to 2021 is still projected to remain in the double-digits.

Among the key drivers of the online retail sales growth in China is the rise of mobile shopping as the main mode of E-Commerce. In the first half of 2017, M-Commerce accounted for more than three-quarters of online retail sales in China, according to several market estimates cited in the report. The convenience of mobile shopping is expected to further spur the overall E-Commerce growth over the forecast period. Another major growth driver is the proliferation of online shopping in smaller cities and rural areas. Between 2015 and 2016, E-Commerce sales in rural China more than doubled, but still accounted for less than one-fifth of the nationwide online retail sales. Considering the significant proportion of China's population living in rural areas, higher Internet and online shopper penetration rates combined with the expansion of delivery coverage of the major market players is projected to contribute to the E-Commerce boom.

Questions Answered in this Report:

  • How large is China's online retail market predicted to be by 2021?
  • What growth rates are expected for retail E-Commerce sales in China through 2021?
  • What are the main E-Commerce growth drivers in China?
  • How high China's share of global online sales in 2016 and what is the forecast for 2021?
  • Which percentage of retail E-Commerce sales in China stems from mobile in 2017?

1. Management Summary

2. Market Overview and International Comparisons

3. Overview of Sales and Shares Forecasts

4. Sales Forecasts

China Blood Product Industry Report 2018-2022 – Research and Markets

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Research Report on Blood Product Industry in China, 2018-2022" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

China will become one of the major global blood product markets as its economy develops. Chinese government imposes strict regulations on production, sales and import of blood products. In addition, the government implements a lot release system of biological products (including blood products and vaccines), compulsorily inspecting and verifying every batch of such products when leaving factory or being imported. Disqualified or disapproved products should not be on the market or imported.

According to market research by the author, about 30 blood product manufacturers have been authenticated by the Chinese government by the end of 2017. But indeed, only 20 of them operate under normal production. Since 2012, mergers and acquisitions have emerged in China's blood product industry.

Examples include Jiangxi Boya Bio-Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. purchasing partial stake of Zhejiang Haikang Biological Products Co., Ltd., Beijing Tiantan Biological Products Co., Ltd. acquiring Chengdu Rosen Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. and Humanwell Healthcare Group Co., Ltd. acquiring Wuhan Rui De Biological Products Co., Ltd.

China Lithium Ion Power Battery Industry Outlook 2018 to 2021 – Pest Analysis and Top 15 Manufacturers In-Depth Survey – Research and Markets

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "China Lithium Ion Power Battery Industry Outlook - Pest Analysis and Top 15 Manufacturers In-Depth Survey, 2018 to 2021 Forecast" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

In 2016, the shipments of global power batteries were around 45.33Gwh, which increased by 67% to 27.5Gwh in the first half of 2017 on a YoY basis. Among which, TOP 10 manufacturers shipped 20.92Gwh, which accounted for 76% of the total shipments.

China's output and output value of power batteries reached 30.8Gwh and RMB 71.4 billion in 2016 respectively. In the first half of 2017, this market achieved nearly output value compared with the same time of 2016, which demonstrated characteristics as follow:

  1. The share of NCM batteries continued to grow,
  2. In November and December 2016, power batteries' price has fallen sharply,
  3. The shrinkage of the power battery market in the first half of 2017 was beyond expectation.

Due to the influence of government's vague subsidy policies, the output of China's power batteries in Q12017 were nearly equal to Q12016, but the output value was sharply decreased by 22%. In Q22017, the industry witnessed a small rebound. Along with the price fall, the market value of China's power battery industry will slump in 2017. Many middle and small-sized manufacturers will record a loss, the industry will be reshuffled soon.

With Patented, Neuroscience-Based Programs from Scientific Learning Corp. and Instruction by Local Teachers, BrainMaps China Continues to Expand

Unique Online-to-Offline (O2O) blended learning model provides highly differentiated and scalable model, which offers a faster path to English fluency

OAKLAND, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#K12--Through its unique O2O model for English language development, BrainMaps is quickly raising awareness of how a blended learning approach can provide students with a faster path to English language proficiency. Unlike traditional English language development programs that rely heavily on native English speakers, BrainMaps anchors its programs with the online Fast ForWord and Reading Assistant programs from Scientific Learning Corp. (OTC PINK:SCIL) supplemented by instruction from local English-speaking teachers. Using this highly differentiated and scalable approach, BrainMaps has expanded to 75 English language learning centers in more than 25 cities across China.

As part of BrainMaps’ O2O model, which currently serves children ages 5 to 12, the neuroscience-based Fast ForWord program prepares the brain to learn English by helping students develop and improve foundational language and cognitive skills. It then provides personalized, intensive practice on a wide variety of English language and reading skills. Students reinforce their new skills with Reading Assistant, which uses patented speech verification technology to listen as they read e-book passages aloud and provide immediate, constructive feedback. Using this unique online tool, students listen to a modeled reading, then read the selection aloud and record themselves. If they mispronounce or struggle with a word, Reading Assistant intervenes with the pronunciation.

In addition, once a week students attend their local BrainMaps learning center where they engage in offline problem- and project-based learning, guided reading, and performance recitals, all of which are led by local English-speaking teachers.

“Thanks to the effectiveness and the efficiency of the online programs from Scientific Learning, we can serve more students and build their English language proficiency more quickly than if we were to rely on direct instruction from native English-speaking teachers,” said Rick Lee, CEO of BrainMaps.

“BrainMaps’ innovative application of our neuroscience-based programs can have profound implications on language learning the world over,” said Robert C. Bowen, CEO of Scientific Learning. “We look forward to seeing Brain Maps’ continued expansion and its impact on children across China.”

Eternity Healthcare Inc. Announces Plans to Build a 50,000 Square Foot Stem Cell Facility in Tongren, Guizhou, China

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Eternity Healthcare (“Eternity” or the “Company”) (OTC: ETAH) has announced its intention to build a cell storage, transformation and application facility in Tongren, Guizhou Province, China. This 50,000-square foot facility will utilize the proprietary biotechnology developed by Shenzhen Zoken Biotechnology Co. LTD.

Eternity is in preliminary negotiations regarding the specific terms of the license, whereby the Company will acquire the exclusive right to use Shenzhen Zoken Biotechnology’s technology for the harvesting, storage, transformation and application of stem cells throughout Guizhou Province. The Company will establish a facility in Tongren for the treatment of clients interested in the benefits of stem cell storage and applications, which will have a fully equipped stem cell laboratory, immune cell research room, and a genetics and gene research laboratory. It is estimated that construction of the facility, including acquisition of the equipment, and initial working capital, will require approximately $20 million. It is anticipated that the funds will be provided by affiliates of one of the Company’s shareholders, pursuant to a long-term loan.

Once completed, the facility will provide its clients with treatments and services, similar to those provided by hospitals which rely upon Shenzhen Zoken Biotechnology to service their clients. Unlike those hospitals, which ship their patients’ stem cells to Shenzhen Zoken Biotechnology for storage and transformation, all work will be done on site at Eternity’s facility.

The Company is currently in negotiations as to the terms of the loan, including interest rate and amortization schedule, the royalty, and other provisions of the license, including the right to use future technologies, and the terms of the lease for the facility.

It is anticipated that the Chinese operating company will be directly owned by a Hong Kong company which, in turn, will be wholly owned by a BVI Company which will be a direct wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. Management of the Company will include individuals experienced in the development of a stem cell harvesting, transformation and storage, transformation and application facility in China.

The organizational structure should be completed by the end of November and the facility in Tongren will be operational by April 2018.

As the terms of all of the relevant documents have yet to be negotiated, there can be no assurance that the Company will be able to establish the anticipated facility or that the relevant economic terms will be advantageous to its shareholders.


Certain matters discussed in this press release are 'forward-looking statements' intended to qualify for the safe harbor from liability established by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. In particular, the Company's statements regarding its intent to develop a stem cell facility and the benefits of such a facility to the public and the Company are subject to numerous risks and uncertainties, including, but not limited to, the timing of the completion of the project, the terms under which the project will be completed, the consumer acceptance of stem cell technologies and whether alternate technologies will displace stem cell technologies. The factors discussed herein and expressed from time to time in the Company's filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission could cause actual results and developments to be materially different from those expressed in or implied by such statements. The forward-looking statements are made only as of the date of this press release and the Company undertakes no obligation to publicly update such forward-looking statements to reflect subsequent events or circumstances.
