The conference organized last week by the European Chamber of Commerce in China was extremely interesting.
I took notes during the other speakers’ presentations, and a theme came back again and again: if China doesn’t increase its labor productivity, times are going to get tough:
China’s exports in November jumped 12.7 percent YoY to $202.2 billion, more than doubling October’s 5.6 percent gain and topping easily general growth projections. Many analysts forecast an increase of 7.1 percent for the moth.
Manufacturers continue to advance the line, shifting steadily from the 1.1 standard to enhance market reach.
Production of DisplayPort 1.2 connectors and cable assemblies remains on the upswing as mainland China suppliers accelerate efforts to upgrade the line. They expect the standard to account for 50 percent of turnout, joining 1.1 units in the mainstream by 2015. At present, the former has a 30 to 40 percent share. Makers are boosting the Mini DisplayPort subcategory, in particular, which makes up half of their 1.2 yield. They are taking advantage of the gathering adoption in smartphones, and tablet and notebook PCs, anticipating this will contribute to overall demand upswing of 30 to 40 percent for such interconnects in coming months.
