Thailand’s 2021 border trade to grow over 28 percent despite crisis... southern Chinese market ranked No.1 for the first time (Current Issue No.3271)

Over the first eight months of 2021, Thailand’s cross-border trade including transit trade saw a progressively brighter outlook, thanks to last year’s low base, higher purchasing power and energy prices. Export value during the period reached THB 682.184 billion, rising by 38 percent YoY,. This growth came mainly from transit trade, which increasingly appeals to Thai exporters due to strong purchasing power and demand for a variety of products, especially from Singapore, southern China, Vietnam, among others.

Retail sales in 4Q21 signals post-lockdown recovery amid cautious spending (Current Issue No.3278)

KResearch views that the COVID-19 situation and vaccine accessibility have improved to the point that the government has eased many lockdown measures, allowing more economic activities to resume operations in the final quarter of 2021. Since many businesses are expected to launch campaigns to boost spending during the period, retail sales in 4Q21 should grow 1.4 percent YoY, contrary to the 1.2-percent contraction in the previous year (the projection took into account the possibility that the Thai government will issue additional stimulus packages). Such growth is expected to be primarily driven by spending in December, in preparation for the new year. ...Read more

Private hospitals 2021 likely to see revenue recover from low base though cost management and intense competition continue to affect business (Current Issue No.3277)

KResearch projects that the revenue of private hospitals in 2021 will grow 11.8 percent YoY, as opposed to 2020 which saw a contraction of 12.5 percent. Such recovery can partly be attributed to the low base of the previous year while revenue remains below pre-COVID-19 levels. Most of private hospitals’ revenue comes from domestic patients seeking COVID-19 testing and treatment, including expats who are gradually returning to receive available health services. While the country’s reopening is scheduled for the final quarter of 2021, the Thai medical tourism market for the entire 2021 will likely see a contraction in revenue....Read more

Thai Banks, 3Q21: Net Profits Projected to Decline QoQ due to Impact of COVID-19 on Asset Quality (Business Brief No.3954)

KResearch expects that net profits of domestically-registered commercial banks will reach THB32.5-33.5 billion in 3Q21, declining from the THB57.2 billion reported for 2Q21 because the resurgence of COVID-19 in early 3Q21 may dent their core business income, particularly fees and service income, thus causing them to incur higher provision expenses than those seen during a normal period and in 1H21. ...Read more

The Baht weakened while the SET surged in line with other stock markets

The Baht hit a new 4-year low of THB33.99/USD during the week of Oct 4-8.
