LEDinside: ASEAN Rapid FTA and Economic Community Developments Pave Entry Point for Chinese LED Manufacturers

LED lighting developed rapidly in Southeast Asia thanks to its infrastructure construction, which was promoted by the development and impact from the Association of South-East Asian Nations (ASEAN), according to LEDinside, a research subsidiary of global research institute TrendForce. ASEAN is an inter-governmental international organization gathering countries in Southeast Asia. Established in 1967, ASEAN covers a population of approximately 618 million people, covering a land area of 4.48 million km², with abundant natural resources, and it is one of the world's fastest growing economic regions.

In view of economic integration, the current main form of cooperation within and outside the ASEAN is Free Trade Area. ASEAN Free Trade Area(AFTA)was officially launched on January 1, 2002. The ASEAN-China Free Trade Area has been fully implemented on January 1, 2010. At this time, mainland China and six ASEAN nations (Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, the Philippines, Indonesia and Brunei) will reduce their industrial tariffs to 0%. The other four ASEAN nations (Myanmar, Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia) will reach this goal in 2015. In the first three quarters of 2014, total trade between China and ASEAN nations reached about $ 346.60 billion, accounting for 11% of China's total foreign trade. The two sides are planning to update and expand the content and scope of the ASEAN-China Free Trade Area agreement, cutting non-tariff measures, actively proposing a new set of service trade commitments, promoting real openness in the investment field by improving market access and personnel interflow and enhance trade and investment liberalization and facilitation, and striving to raise two-way trade to one trillion US dollars by 2020.

Benefiting from China-ASEAN bilateral trade agreement, Chinese manufacturers enjoy lower tariffs or zero tariffs when exporting LED products to ASEAN nations. For example, as long as the Chinese enterprises obtains certificates proving the products origin are from China, LED component products exported to the ASEAN nations can enjoy zero tariffs. For finished lighting products, taking bulb lamp for example,tariff concessions provide a good environment for Chinese LED manufacturers to enter the Southeast Asian market, and promote further industrial cooperation between China and ASEAN.

ASEAN not only actively negotiates free trade agreements, but also sets a goal that setting up the "ASEAN Economic Community" in 2015. The establishment of the ASEAN Community envisions the ASEAN to be a single market and production base. Moreover, the Southeast Asian nations achieved rapid economic growth, and invested heavily in infrastructure construction, also policy is very attractive, so the industry is optimistic about the growth of LED lighting in Southeast Asian nations. ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) has a number of specific objectives; the important ones that can promote the Chinese LED manufacturers to enter the Southeast Asian market include free movement of goods, investment and labor, freer flow of capital, and transportation facilities construction.

The establishment of FTA and the Economic Community has brought a great number of favorable policies for Chinese LED manufacturers, which provides entry point for Chinese LED manufacturers to access the ASEAN market, while different manufacturers should adopt corresponding specific strategies. For example, packaging manufacturers should seize opportunity to enter the supply chain of local lighting manufacturers, or invest in building local factories; lighting OEM should put more focus towards the direct export of finished products to the local market, and adopt new transporting way to reduce transportation time and distance. For lighting brands, they can set up a single agent or offices in the Southeast Asian market, and invest in building local factories, regarding Southeast Asia as a manufacturing base. Different manufacturers of LED industry chain should seize the current golden opportunity to enter the Southeast Asian market, broadening the highly anticipated emerging market.
