Our thematic insights

Macquarie Insights is an industry leading research portal covering a full range of sectors and markets.

Access to these reports is restricted to clients of Macquarie.

Divergent consumer demand for logistics services widens

While China’s express delivery industry has been the key beneficiary of the online retail evolution, the value proposition for integrated services is becoming more important. Demand for fresh produce, FMCG and catering is growing, and companies with scale and the ability to integrate with hybrid business models are set to lead.

Digital wallets are upgrading to full banks driving investment

ASEAN has a lot of appeal for new digital financial services. With more than 70% of ASEAN’s population now online, the movement of wallet providers into banks to expand services beyond payments is a natural progression in their path to set up viable and saleable businesses in the region.

Autonomous Vehicles: A Data Center on wheels

We expect Vehicles that are largely autonomous to become commonplace by the middle of the decade. This revolution in mobility will require a wholesale re-engineering of the automobile electronics architecture and industry – creating an effective ‘Data Center on Wheels’. Auto OEMs, who were far behind two years ago, are coming back with strength but we think the best investment opportunities will lie with suppliers of automotive semiconductors and software.

Our perspectives

"Data Centres offer an infrastructure-type play on data growth – highly predictable cash flows, barriers to entry (location, location, location) and a real growth element."

Nic Baratte, Sector Lead for Technology & Telecom

"In China, we see 8 percent of the hospital system caring for more than half of the entire country’s patients."

David Ng, Sector Lead for Healthcare & Pharma

"We expect leading After School Training players will accelerate consolidation… the pandemic also has provided an opportunity for online education to gain wider exposure. Going forward, we expect the Online-Merge-Offline (“OMO”) model to become the norm in the AST sector."

Linda Huang, Sector Lead for Consumer & Education
