The Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) kicks off the week with the title of being the world’s largest semiconductor company. The information was made official once the value of the shares was known, which reached a peak value of $ 66.40, resulting in a market capitalization of no less than $ 313 billion (+ 273 billion euros).
After reaching this value, it was placed in the first position, surpassing other highly relevant companies such as Intel, Samsung or Nvidia, although the latter uses the ” fabless ” strategy, that is, they design their silicons but do not have their own factories to give them life, In this case, it is TSMC itself that supplies almost all of its silicon.
This news is not surprising and is that TSMC is at the forefront of the manufacturing process while its main rivals are having problems. A clear example is Intel, still stagnant at 14nm and with about 10nm that do not end up being excessively striking, or today’s news that Samsung is having problems with 5nm.
According to the latest TrendForce reports, TSMC controls 51.9% of the semiconductor foundry share worldwide. Something normal when they have dedicated themselves to reinvesting a large part of the income obtained in R&D to always offer the most advanced solutions on the market, and that is why the main companies worldwide, such as Apple, Nvidia, Huawei or AMD have resorted to your manufacturing processes to bring your products to life. If we add to that the imminent arrival on the market of its 5nm, and that they are already developing the 3nm, it seems that the first place will have it assured for a great season.
