Accelerated Order Shift Effect from U.S. Tariff Barriers Boosts Utilization Rates at Taiwanese Semiconductor Foundries Beyond Expectations, Says TrendForce

22 May 2024

TrendForce reports that this move has accelerated a shift in supply chains, resulting in increased orders for Taiwanese foundries, which are now seeing higher-than-expected capacity utilization rates. In the second half of this year, Vanguard's capacity utilization rate is expected to rise above 75%, PSMC's 12-inch capacity utilization rate will reach between 85 to 90%, and UMC's overall capacity utilization rates are projected to reach 70–75%.

HBM3e Production Surge Expected to Make Up 35% of Advanced Process Wafer Input by End of 2024, Says TrendForce

20 May 2024

TrendForce reports that the three largest DRAM suppliers are increasing wafer input for advanced processes. Following a rise in memory contract prices, companies have boosted their capital investments, with capacity expansion focusing on the second half of this year. It is expected that wafer input for 1alpha nm and above processes will account for approximately 40% of total DRAM wafer input by the end of the year.

Top 10 IC Design Houses’ Combined Revenue Grows 12% in 2023, NVIDIA Takes Lead for the First Time, Says TrendForce

9 May 2024

In 2023, the combined revenue of the world’s top ten IC design houses reached approximately $167.6 billion, marking a 12% annual increase. This growth was primarily driven by NVIDIA, which saw a remarkable 105% increase in revenue, significantly boosting the overall industry. While Broadcom, Will Semiconductor, and MPS experienced only marginal revenue growth, other companies faced declines due to economic downturns and inventory reductions, says TrendForce.
