Key Market Trends
Foundry is Expected to Hold Major Share
TSMC is planning to dominate the global foundry market by starting the volume production of 3-nm products in 2022. Samsung Electronics Co, Ltd, the runner-up in the market, is aiming to overtake TSMC in 2030 with its extreme ultraviolet (EUV) lithography technology. TSMC announced in December 2019 that the company would start to supply 5-nm process-based chips in the first half of 2020 and start the mass production of 3-nm process chips in 2022. The company also expects o produce 2-nm process products in 2024.
Samsung is facing a series of challenges in the market. For instance, the supply of photoresists for EUV lithography purposes can be subject to Japan's export restrictions. Besides, a significant number of companies are trying to compete with Samsung Electronics. Chinese and Taiwanese semiconductor companies are increasingly collaborating. To compete with the increasing competitors, Samsung Electronics has unveiled a series of new microfabrication techniques such as FinFET, gate-all-around, and multi-bridge-channel FET.
In February 2020, Samsung Electronics has begun mass production in its new semiconductor fabrication line in Hwaseong, Korea. The V1 facility is the company's first production line for semiconductors that incorporates extreme ultraviolet (EUV) lithography technology and produces chips using a process node of 7 nm and below. By the end of 2020, the total investment in the V1 line is expected to reach USD 6 billion following Samsung's plan, and the full capacity from 7nm and below process node is expected to multiply three times from that of 2019.
Asia-Pacific is Expected to Hold Major Share
The Asia Pacific continues to hold the largest revenue share in the global market for Extreme Ultraviolet (EUV) lithography. Taiwan is expected to have an edge in the region over the forecast period. TSMC's expansion in Taiwan and its increasing investments in the EUV lithography technology is among the most critical factors instrumental in the growth of the Extreme Ultraviolet lithography market in Taiwan. The country accounts for the majority revenue share of the market for EUV lithography in the Asia Pacific region. Apart from Taiwan, the Extreme Ultraviolet lithography markets in Japan, China, and South Korea are expected to create significant opportunities for stakeholders in the coming years.
TSMC is further developing its technology by purchasing a significant amount of EUV exposure equipment from ASML Holding NV. In the third quarter of 2019, Taiwanese clients accounted for no less than 54 percent of the Dutch company's sales by purchasing EUV lithography equipment, priced at KRW 150 billion to KRW 200 billion per unit, in quantity. In that quarter, Taiwan's semiconductor equipment investment totaled USD 3.9 billion, which is an increase of 34 percent from 2018, whereas South Korea's semiconductor equipment investment decreased 36 percent year to USD 2.2 billion.
Ushio Inc., a lightning equipment company based out of Japan, announced in July 2019 that it had cleared a key milestone, perfecting the powerful, ultraprecise lights needed to test chip designs based on EUV lithography and the company expected the process to make the next generation of semiconductors. With that, the company became a significant player in future chipmaking. The company plans to control the market for light sources used in the testing of patterned Extreme Ultraviolet masks.
