Dublin, June 09, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Taiwan Semiconductor Industry 2021 Recap and Forecast for 2022" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

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.

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.

List of Topics

  • Development of the Taiwan semiconductor industry, comprising of three sectors: IC design, semiconductor manufacturing, and IC packaging and testing, which is also known as OSAT (Outsourced Semiconductor Assembly and Test)
