TSMC – Cannot solve the supply chain challenges of the entire automotive industry

“The automotive supply chain is quite complicated, but TSMC has tried its best to increase production capacity to support automotive customers to solve the shortage,” said TSMC President Dr. C.C. Wei said at a recent conference, continuing, “However, we cannot solve the supply chain challenges of the entire industry.”

He went on to say the pandemic in Southeast Asia has affected the supply of some automotive ICs, but added that the shortage has improved compared with the third quarter and expects GM and other manufacturers to see benefits “in the next few quarters”.

In order to solve the shortage of automotive chips, TSMC has actively launched a number of actions. TSMC previously mentioned that in the first half of 2021, it has successfully increased the output of MCU, one of the important components of automotive semiconductor products, by about 30% annually. In addition, TSMC plans to increase MCU production for the whole year of 2021 by nearly 60%.
