Taiwan Semiconductor Industry 2021 Recap and Forecast for 2022

Despite the continued shortage of components due to the pandemic and the ongoing U.S.-China trade war, shipment value of the Taiwanese semiconductor industry managed to grow 31.8% year-on-year to US$130.8 billion in 2021, higher than the global average. This report covers three major subsectors of the semiconductor industry, including IC design, semiconductor manufacturing, and OSAT (Outsourced Semiconductor Assembly and Test); looks closely into key development highlights and issues in those three subsectors from the fourth quarter of 2020 to the fourth quarter of 2021; analyzes strategies of several major players in each sector and their development trends such as TSMC, MediaTek, UMC, and ASE.
