Semiconductor industries are like “nuclear weapons” in global politics- DigiTimes

DIGITIMES just released a 2022 semiconductor industry report to explore the impact of geopolitics on the semiconductor supply chain and competition among the major countries and companies in the race.

The report likens the semiconductor industry to “nuclear weapons” in global politics. Without massive nuclear weapons, Russia, with total GDP lower than that of South Korea, would not be strong enough to invade Ukraine, let alone deter the West from imposing a no-fly zone over Ukrainian territory.

So far, the US, Taiwan, South Korea and Japan account for 82% of the global semiconductor production capacity, while China represents 60% of the global market demand. This is in line with the fact that 61% of the semiconductors exported by Taiwan and South Korea went to China in 2021.
