TSMC is still not able to fulfill all orders because demand exceeds production capabilities.
TSMC is the leader among contract manufacturers of semiconductor products, but rivals do not let it rest on its laurels. According to a source citing industry-owned information, Samsung is striving to narrow the gap.
Allegedly, the South Korean giant offers discounts on contract manufacturing, hoping to lure customers from a Taiwanese competitor. Samsung’s actions are facilitated by the fact that TSMC is not able to fulfill all orders – the demand exceeds the capabilities of the lines on which advanced technological processes are mastered.
