TSMC Solidifies Global Leadership With 57.9% Market Share In Q3.

(CTN News) – According to market information advisory TrendForce Corp, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (TSMC) has further solidified its dominant position in the global pure play wafer foundry market during the third quarter.

TSMC’s sales increased by 10.2 percent to reach US$17.25 billion in the July-September period, resulting in a market share of 57.9 percent for the quarter, up from 56.4 percent in the previous quarter.

The company’s success can be attributed to the sales of chips utilizing the advanced 3-nanometer process, which is currently in mass production.

This helped offset the decline in wafer shipments. Additionally, TSMC experienced a boost in sales due to rush orders from international PC and smartphone brands.

The 3nm process alone accounted for approximately 6 percent of TSMC’s total sales in the quarter, while advanced processes such as 7nm and more sophisticated technologies contributed to nearly 60 percent of the chipmaker’s total revenue.

According to TrendForce, UMC, a Taiwanese contract chipmaker, ranked fourth in global market share with sales of around US$1.80 billion, accounting for a 6.0 percent share in Q3.

Despite a decline in demand for automotive chips, UMC received rush orders during this period. However, its sales decreased by 1.7 percent compared to Q2, and its market share dropped by 6.7 percent.

VIS, a subsidiary of TSMC, ranked eighth with Q3 sales of US$333 million, resulting in a 1.1 percent global market share.

VIS experienced a decline in inventory levels for LDDI and a gradual recovery in demand for PMIC, leading to a 3.8 percent increase in sales compared to Q2.

PSMC, a semiconductor manufacturer in Taiwan, secured the tenth position with Q3 sales of US$305 million. However, this represented a 7.5 percent decrease from the previous quarter, according to TrendForce.

According to an advisory firm, PSMC saw a decline in PMIC sales and revenue in power discretes, resulting in a 10% fall in PMIC sales and a 20% decline in revenue.

Samsung Electronics Co. secured the second position with a 12.4% market share and $3.69 billion in sales. GlobalFoundries ranked third with $1.85 billion in sales and a 6.2% market share.

UMC claimed the fourth spot, followed by SMIC with $1.62 billion in sales and a 5.4% market share, Huahong Group with $766 million in sales and a 2.6% market share, and Tower Semiconductor Ltd. with $358 million in sales and a 1.2% market share.

The remaining positions were occupied by VIS, Intel Foundry Services with $311 million in sales and a 1.0% market share, and PSMC. The top 10 contract chipmakers collectively recorded $28.29 billion in revenue in the third quarter, a 7.9% increase from the previous quarter.

These companies accounted for 95% of the total revenue in the global pure play wafer foundry market, according to TrendForce.
