The rest of the world – including South Korea – will lose foundry revenue market share to Taiwan and China in 2022 compared to 2021, according to data from TrendForce.
The market analyst reckons the foundry market was worth US$107.54 billion in 2021 and will increase in size by 19.8 percent to US$128.78 billion in 2022.

Of that market the world’s leading foundry – TSMC – will hold 56 percent, up from 53 percent the year before while second largest foundry supplier will slip to 16 percent share, down from 18 percent in 2021. Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corp. will also lose one percentage point of share down to 4 percent although China collectively will increase market share.
But the biggest gain will be in Taiwan, which will hold 66 percent up in 2022 from 64 percent the year before. TSMC has the most advanced process technology but other foundries including UMC, Vanguard, and PSMC also have their own process advantages.
China will hold 8 percent up from 7 percent. At the same time South Korea will lose a point down to 17 percent market share. The same will hold for the rest of the world which will drop to 9 percent from 10 percent.
