The situation in the semiconductor market has become more complicated

The situation in the semiconductor market has become more complicated

Taiwan’s official representative in France, Francois Chin-Chung Wu, said that the growing tension in the Taiwan Strait could lead to a complication of the situation in the global semiconductor market. 

“The semiconductor manufacturing chain is a complex process; if any conflict affects the production of even one component of this technologically complex product, the entire system will cease to function. This will be a big problem for the entire global market,” Chin-Chun Wu said.

The Taiwanese company TSMC (TSMC) is the world’s largest contract manufacturer of conductor microcircuits.

“Semiconductors are now used in almost every device we use on a daily basis: phones, computers, electronics in your car – and due to the fact that their production is concentrated in Taiwan, any turbulence can affect the market for their exports. And this is also becoming weapon in the political struggle,” added Chin-Chun Wu.
