Taiwan continues to dominate the semiconductor industry

Taiwanese companies continue to dominate the semiconductor industry. The company that generates most of the headlines is TSMC, but there are other less heralded companies including UMC, Vanguard, and PSMC too. When combined, these companies account for 64% of the global foundry market.

The analysis comes from Trendforce (via Business Wire). It illustrates just how important Taiwan is to the global semiconductor industry, and the economy as a whole. Taiwanese companies have plans to build more fabs in Taiwan, China and the United States while many existing fabs are expanding their capacity. Though more skilled humans are also required.
