中國半導體夢任重道遠

半导体一直是“中国制造2025”战略的主要焦点,自2015年以来,集成电路已超过石油成为中国最大的进口产品,占进口的14%。 虽然政府提供了大量的财政资源来支持这一战略,但其IC自给率目标只能说还有很长的路要走。

最近從美國對中興通訊(00763)的制裁措施,不難看出所有國家都想佔據戰略產業的價值鏈頂端。此前「中國製造2025」就已表明,中國對半導體產業的野心已經是公開的秘密。2018年3月,中國政府為國家積體電路產業投資基金(簡稱「大基金」)二期募資,規模達2000億元人民幣(320億美元),並加推額外減稅措施。

錢海戰術遇到障礙

半導體一直被視為「中國製造2025」戰略的重點,原因為半導體是電子行業增值鏈中最重要的一環,也是未來技術應用的推動力,但中國產能卻相當有限。自2015年以來,集成電路已經超過石油成為中國最大的進口產品,佔進口14%,無疑表明中國半導體非常依賴進口。

為實現創新發展目標,政府加強布局半導體及大灑「錢雨」,當中以中國政府和國有企業斥資成立產業基金支援半導體行業為主。除直接注資外,中國半導體企業的有效稅率僅為11%,遠低於全球同業,利率也處於2.2%的低位,極端情況下更可獲得債務豁免。錢海戰術背後的根本原因是中國作為世界上最大的半導體市場,供應卻一直由外資主導。

中國政府應大力扶持企業擴展低端產品市場份額。對於高端企業而言,併購勢在必行,但由於關鍵市場(主要是美國,其次是日本和歐洲)投資審查的縮緊,收購變得愈來愈艱難。

併購目標或轉向歐洲

總而言之,中國半導體企業將因其規模較小而快速蓬勃增長,並挑戰產業鏈低端的企業,但在產業鏈高端市場的全球領導者面前,技術瓶頸是一個巨大的障礙。雖然政府提供了大量財政資源支援「中國製造2025」,但其75%的集成電路自給率目標只能說是任重道遠。

以上分析表明2018年中國在半導體行業需要再次進入併購階段。鑑於美國政府對中國公司的限制,歐洲將會是最簡單的目標。我們預計,今年中國企業會轉向歐洲,因此歐洲半導體公司需求將會增加。

Europe and the new imperialism

For decades, Europe has served as a steward of the post-war liberal order, ensuring that economic rules are enforced and that national ambitions are subordinated to shared goals within multilateral bodies. But with the United States and China increasingly mixing economics with nationalist foreign-policy agendas, Europe will have to adapt.
