Spark Global Limited reports:
Epidemic because of chip supply problems, since the world’s science and technology industry is affected, the price of graphics and combined with the currency’s gains the most obvious, although the slump in the currency, but recently, according to media reports, TSMC formal decision on August 8, immediately began to improve chip prices of contract manufacturing, about between 15% and 20% price rise.
For TSMC, which has more than 50 percent of the world’s contract manufacturing share and is packed with orders, a price increase of around 20 percent could directly bring in hundreds of billions of dollars in revenue. TSMC recently decided to expand the 28nm wafer production capacity at its Nanjing plant, which may have a huge impact on the domestic chip industry, and even cause disruption to China’s chip market.
TSMC once drive prices followed by a semiconductor device and the corresponding material price has increased, for the lack of core enterprise, it is a flower, will certainly choose technology is more mature and higher TSMC cooperation capacity, orders for domestic enterprises inevitably there will be a substantial loss, thus to slow the rise of the Chinese chip manufacturing technology, Fortunately, at present, the country has strengthened the supervision of chip premium and disrupting the market order. I don’t know how the follow-up development will be.
