TSMC allegedly to increase manufacturing price around 15% for 16nm chip and above

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) is a well-known chip manufacturing plant that handles multiple chip request from smartphone manufacturer globally. With the recent chip shortage, TSMC allegedly will need to increase the price of 16nm chip and above during manufacturing to cater for premium client and other tech giants.

One of the IC designer has stated that TSMC will increase the price for chip manufacturing by 10 to 15 percent. This only affects 16nm chip process and above and does not affect those whom the order has made.

In the other hand, Taiwan has approved TSMC on the construction of 2nm chip manufacturing plant, expected commencing in 2024.
