  • Taiwan’s IC industry has a complete industry chain. From the upstream IC Design to the downstream IDM and IC Packaging and Testing, Taiwan has a unrivaled and professional division-of-labor structure. The output value of Taiwan’s IC industry is in the world’s third place, right after the United States and Korea (before Japan, Europe, mainland China and Singapore).
  • The world’s No. 2 player in terms of total IC Design output, right after the U.S. (before Mainland China).
  • The world’s No. 5 player in terms of total IDM output and the world’s No. 4 player in terms of total memory production output. Taiwan mainly produces DRAM, and then NOR Flash and Mask ROM. Its world position comes only after Korea, the United States and Japan.
  • The world’s No. 1 player in terms of total IC foundry output and a global leader with advanced below 10 nm production process.
  • The world’s No. 1 player in terms of IC Packaging and Testing output. Besides, among the world’s top 10 professional IC Packaging and Testing companies, more than half of them are from Taiwan.
