TSMC's 5-nanometer utilization rate may remain high-end in the first quarter of this year

According to Taiwanese media reports, 5G and high-performance computing applications drive the demand for advanced wafer foundry processes. It is expected that the global foundry output value and the investment scale of 12-inch wafer fabs will reach new highs this year. Among them, the proportion of TSMC's 5-nanometer process can be greatly increased. The 7-nanometer capacity is fully loaded to the second quarter, UMC's 8-inch wafer production capacity continues to be tight, and the global crystalline silicon wafer capacity is fully loaded into the first half of the year.

Looking ahead to the 5nm and 7nm advanced process market conditions in the first half of this year, industry insiders pointed out that the utilization rate of 5nm is still relatively optimistic. TSMC has not cut orders or declines in capacity utilization. It is estimated that the demand for 5nm process in the first half of this year is still promising; In addition, only TSMC and Samsung in the world have mass production capacity below 7nm. TSMC's yield rate is higher than its competitors. In the first half of this year, TSMC still has an advantage in 5nm and 7nm advanced process capacity.


TSMC's 5nm process was mass-produced in the second half of last year. Fab 18 mainly produced 5nm process products. Last year's revenue was reestimated by about 8%. It is estimated that this year's 5nm process performance is expected to increase significantly.

Foreign sources pointed out that TSMC's 5-nanometer utilization rate remained high-end in the first quarter of this year, mainly because Apple's high-end application processor (AP) covered most of its production capacity.

Looking ahead to the boom in the semiconductor foundry industry this year, the International Semiconductor Industry Association (SEMI) predicts that the demand for cloud services, servers, laptops, games and medical technology will grow this year, and 5G, the Internet of Things, automobiles and artificial intelligence (AI) will develop rapidly. Promote the foundry industry boom and investment in 12-inch wafer fabs. It is estimated that the investment scale of global 12-inch wafer fabs this year can grow by 4% compared with last year, setting a new record high. In this regard, the market research organization TrendForce also predicts that this year's foundry output value is expected to reach new highs, with an annual growth rate of nearly 6%.
