  • TSMC, the world’s largest semiconductor company, believes Huawei China won’t be able to cause any trouble to its business.

  • TSMC is undoubtedly leading the process technology and the development of top-tier semiconductors.

  • Major rivals such as Intel Foundry and Samsung have tried to bridge the gap, but TSMC has managed to maintain its dominance.

TSMC, the world’s largest semiconductor company, believes Huawei China and other budding competitors won’t be able to cause any trouble to its business. TSMC is undoubtedly leading the process technology and the development of top-tier semiconductors.

 

Major rivals such as Intel Foundry and Samsung have tried to bridge the gap, but despite their efforts, TSMC has managed to maintain its dominance, thanks to its vast experience along with great relationships with established clients such as Apple and NVIDIA.

 

Similarly, in the company’s annual shareholder meeting held a few days ago, TSMC’s Chairman, Mark Liu, claimed that Huawei and similar firms are no threat to the firm’s consolidated positions in the market.

Is TSMC Underestimating Huawei In Semiconductor Race?

 

When questioned about Huawei’s progress in foundry expansion and semiconductor development, TSMC’s Chairman said that the firm has been witnessing competition for a long time. TSMC has been optimistic about the company’s future, and when asked about whether Huawei can catch up, TSMC’s President Wei Zhejia claimed that it’s "impossible."

 

“TSMC considers every competitor very, very carefully. We will always have competitors. It has nothing to do with Huawei or not,” said Chairman Mark Liu.

 

The company’s confidence and optimism are exciting to see as the company believes its dominance in the markets is currently not challenged despite other companies making strides in the industry.

What Is Huawei Doing In The Semiconductor Race?

 

Speaking of the progress being made by Huawei, the company has expressed its plans to mass-produce 5nm and beyond processes soon but is facing vast yield issues simply because the primary source of semiconductor equipment supplier for the company is SMIC, which is dependent on the older DUV equipment instead of EUV. However, Huawei has suggested that a semiconductor breakthrough is on the horizon, and the market competition will surely boost.

 

TSMC, on the other hand, is looking to mass-produce of its 2nm process by 2025, and the company has already disclosed exceptional performance and yield rate results from its associated devices.

 

Overall, the gap between the Taiwanese giant and other budding rivals from China is huge, but it’s important to note that companies like Huawei and others have made big strides in the last year. Hence, the competition in the markets is catching up with heat now.
