Industry Outlook

Affin Hwang Capital research has initiated coverage on the electronics manufacturing services (EMS) sector with an overweight call on expectations of rising demand from a shared key customer and trade diversion from China.

It added in a note that sector PE valuations have de-rated over the past two years due to lowered growth expectations and the sector is trading below its historical mean PER of 13X on CY2020E.

According to Affin Hwang, VS Industry, ATA IMS and SKP Resources are the three largest home-grown EMS players in Malaysia, which collectively produce more than 50% of a key customer's global production of a major household appliances brand.

"The key customer is able to enjoy a lower cost of production with its entrenched ecosystem in Malaysia and will continue its investment in technology which should benefit the Malaysian supply chain," it said.

In addition, trade diversion from China has resulted in the domestic EMS players receiving increased enquiries from multinational corporations, it said.
