1 Macroeconomics in March

1.1 Global Manufacturing Continues to Rebound

In March, the global economic index continued to rebound, with the economic situation remaining stable. Specifically, the core economies led by China and the United States have both returned to the balance line of prosperity and decline. Considering that China's manufacturing competitiveness continues to rise, its support for the Asian and even global economies remains very evident.

From the perspective of global trade, with geopolitical conflicts no longer intensifying, the global trade growth rate in 2024 may be slightly higher than the global economic growth rate, and better than the same period last year.

1.2 The Electronic Information Manufacturing Industry Has Seen Significant Growth

In the January-February 2024 period, China's electronic information manufacturing sector witnessed a substantial increase in production, ongoing enhancement in exports, steady progress in profitability, rapid growth in investment, and pronounced regional variations in revenue.

1.3 Semiconductor Sales Are Steadily Rising

According to the latest data from SIA, global semiconductor industry sales in February 2024 amounted to $46.17 billion, representing a year-over-year increase of 16.3% and a month-over-month decrease of 3.1%. The year-over-year market growth continues the robust trend observed since the middle of last year, and it is unlikely for the global semiconductor industry to rebound swiftly in the short to medium term. In 2024, it is likely to exhibit an overall steady recovery, with structural differentiation and adjustment evident in various sub-sectors.

From the perspective of integrated circuit production, the global integrated circuit production in February was about 108.9 billion pieces, a year-on-year increase of 10.2%. China's production is about 38.8 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of over 15%. From January to February, China's production rebounded significantly.
