TSMC's Kaohsiung plant officially started construction

The wafer foundry TSMC said today that the Kaohsiung plant has officially started construction after site preparation, and will achieve mass production in 2024 as planned. Wei Zhejia, president of TSMC, previously stated at the law conference that the capacity utilization rate of TSMC’s 7nm process loosened in the fourth quarter, resulting in a temporary delay in the construction of Kaohsiung’s 7nm plant, but did not cancel or change plans, while the 28nm plant Still on schedule.

TSMC’s Kaohsiung plant is located in Nanzi Industrial Park, the former site of CNPC’s Kaohsiung refinery. The Kaohsiung City Government expects to combine Qiaotou Science Park, Luke, and Nanke to create a semiconductor industry cluster, which is expected to be mass-produced in 2024.

TSMC’s cumulative revenue from January to October 2022 will be approximately  NT$1.85 trillion, an increase of 44.0% over the same period last year.

In the third quarter of this year, TSMC’s revenue was US$20.23 billion (approximately RMB 145.049 billion), with a gross profit margin of 60.4% and a net operating profit margin of 50.6%. During the reporting period, TSMC’s 5nm shipments accounted for 28% of total wafer revenue; 7nm shipments accounted for 26%; 7nm and more advanced processes accounted for 54% of total wafer revenue.
