TSMC financial report from the second quarter of 2021 – 20% increase in revenue due to increased demand for chips
Findings of the report show that this major parts maker experienced a 23 percent revenue growth in June alone, reaching 148.5 billion new Taiwan dollars. has registered According to Roland Shu and Grant Chi, Bloomberg analysts, this is mostly due to the improvement in the pricing of this company’s products, due to the shortage of chips needed by industries, and the costs related to setting up new factories, including It has compensated for the 12 billion dollar facility for the Phoenix center located in Arizona. In addition, the company’s advancement in manufacturing technology using Extreme Ultra Violet or EUV lithography has given TSMC a significant competitive advantage. In this technology, ultraviolet waves are used to design chips and circuit patterns to install transistors.
As you know, the global epidemic of COVID-19 has created a crisis in the chip supply chain in the world and has put pressure on many industries dependent on these products, including smartphone, tablet and car manufacturers. . As an example, recently, automakers such as Daimler AG and Jaguar Land Rover have spoken about the production difficulties in the coming months, referring to the lack of chips. As Jaguar Land Rover has announced a 50% decrease in car deliveries in the second quarter of this year compared to the forecasted amount.
In this regard, United Microelectronics, which is a smaller factory than TSMC, has indicated in a report that demand will continue to increase compared to the amount of inventory and supply until 2023, which can be very good news for chip companies such as It is TSMC, which is currently reportedly working on the latest powerful Apple chipset, the M1. A chip that is made using the 5 nm technology of a Taiwanese company and compresses 16 billion transistors and is used in devices such as Mac computers and iPad Pro (2021) is used.
