Not only Japan is looking forward to establishing a local supply chain, the United States, Germany, India, and Singapore are all actively establishing cooperation with Taiwan and South Korea semiconductor manufacturers. Because the United States occupies the upper reaches of the global semiconductor industry chain, even if officials from the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry of Japan began to contact TSMC in the name of attracting investment as early as 2019, they were still ranked first by the United States. Stimulated by TSMC's visit to the United States, Japan decided to base its strengths on popular database semiconductor back-end process (package and testing) and financial support that could rival that of other countries, finally attracting TSMC to set up factories in Japan. The 22 EU countries announced in December last year that they would jointly strengthen "Europe's semiconductor capabilities." At the beginning of this year, due to the large shortage of automotive semiconductors, Germany did not hesitate to offend China and asked Taiwan to squeeze out production capacity. From 52 billion US dollars in the United States, 5 billion to 10 billion euros in Germany, and 600 billion yen in Japan... Countries are competing to provide financial support in the scale of billions to tens of billions of dollars, hoping to promote investment in local semiconductor production lines. In this power competition, the U.S. controls the terminal market and upstream design, Japan almost monopolizes the supply of materials, and both have proposed subsidy policies that are rarely comparable. Therefore, in terms of the progress of improving the semiconductor production system, the U.S. and Japan have successfully wooed TSMC, which is far away. lead.
