Implications: Huawei will see market share in the telecom sector decline markedly over the next 2 years; China will push harder on its own allies to purchase Huawei/ZTE gear; Huawei and ZTE will emphasize services and software more, and hardware less; China will explore many ways around the rules but see limited success without crucial chipmaking technology; Open RAN will see an accelerated adoption curve; US companies like Ciena, Cisco, and Infinera, and others (e.g. Fujitsu and NEC), will see telecom opportunities pick up significantly in 2H21 and 2022.
Second, the US will actively support the development of a semiconductor supply chain with more firm roots in the US mainland, and also aim to offset the growing global dependence on a single contract manufacturer (foundry), Taiwan-based TSMC. Implications: China will accelerate...
