Taiwan’s GDP rose 3.7% year-on-year in the quarter ending September of 2021, slightly less than preliminary estimates of 3.8% and followed a 7.43% hike in the previous quarter. Growth was mainly driven by robust foreign demand, as exports rose 14.31% (vs 22.51% in Q2), namely electronic and ICT products such as semiconductor chips, which was offset by a 21.84% jump in imports (vs 18.68%). Additionally, fixed capital investment surged during Q3, primarily in machinery and transportation equipment, reflected in double-digit growth for gross fixed capital formation (20.14% vs 18.90%). On the consumption side, private consumption fell sharply due to strict health restrictions to control the pandemic (-5.60% vs -0.46% in Q2), while government spending increased (3.31% vs 2.20%). Growth forecasts were revised, with GDP now seen advancing 6.09% in 2021, faster than a prior estimate of 5.88%, and 4.15% in 2022 growth, compared to an earlier forecast of 3.69%. source: National Statistics, Republic of China

Taiwan Q3 GDP Growth Slightly Misses Estimates
Taiwan’s economy grew 3.8 percent year-on-year in the quarter ending September 2021, slightly below market estimates of a 4 percent increase and slowing from a 7.43 percent advance in the previous quarter. The expansion was driven mainly by investment (28 percent vs 8.5 percent in Q2), particularly for machinery, transportation and construction equipment. However, the growth was capped as household consumption declined faster (-5.5 percent vs -0.4 percent in Q2) due to the imposition of pandemic restrictions and a base effect from government stimulus packages last year. Also, net foreign demand weakened as imports surged 19.4 percent (vs 17.5 percent in Q2) while exports rose at a softer 14 percent (vs 23 percent), especially for electronics, ICT and traditional products. Looking ahead, the economy is expected to grow at a slower 3.69 percent in 2022.
