Report on TSMC’s Japan Expansion and Japanese Semiconductor Vendor Deployment Strategies –

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The report “TSMC’s Japan Expansion and Japanese Semiconductor Vendors Deployment Strategies” has been added to from offer.

This report examines the deployment plans of Japanese semiconductor vendors such as Sony, Renesas and Denso and analyzes TSMC’s motivation to establish a new factory in Japan from the perspective of cooperation between wafer foundries and their customers.

After TSMC, the world’s largest fab foundry, announced the establishment of a US$12 billion factory in the United States in 2020, the company recently announced that it would set up a new fab, called JASM (Japan Advanced Semiconductor Manufacturing) with Sony in Kumamoto, Japan.

Under the agreement, Sony will invest $500 million to take a less than 20% stake in JASM while TSMC will spend $2.12 billion and the Japanese government will provide financial support of 400 billion yen (3.5 billion dollars; 1 dollar = 114.1 yen) subsidies.
