In the early morning of May 15, Beijing time, TSMC announced that it plans to build the worlds most advanced chip factory in Arizona, the United States. The factory is planned to start construction in 2021 and put into production in 2024. TSMCs total expenditure (including capital expenditure) on this project is about 12 billion US dollars from 2021 to 2029.
TSMC emphasizes that the premise for us to set up a factory is cost and matching with customer demand. Under the condition that the US government is willing to solve the investment problem, TSMC will see the opportunity. This investment has no political consideration.
