The world-growing contract manufacturer TSMC invests 2 billion euros in its production capacity. The fourth gray memory chip manufacturer Nanya builds a new chip factory in Taiwan for nearly 9 billion euros. Both should operate the further growing demand for semiconductors. Western Digital and Micron, on the other hand, are looking for the use of Japanese Kioxia, the second grave manufacturer of flash memory chips.
The Taiwanese memory chip manufacturer Nanya Technology has announced to invest around 8.8 billion euros in the construction of a new semiconductor factory in northern Taiwan. The construction should start this year and be completed in the city’s year. From 2024 DRAM chips in 10 nanometer technology are to be produced using extreme ultraviolet exposure.
Nanya is the fourth-grayed DRAM chip manufacturer in the world. With a market share of just under 3 percent, however, Taiwaners are far behind the Korean industry drivers Samsung and SK Hynix, which come on market shares of 42 and 30 percent. Since the DRAM market is expected to grow more than 50 percent by theest year alone, Nanya wants to reduce the luck with the market operators with this coarse investment.
