TSMC’s Overseas Ventures: Balancing Growth Amid Rising Costs and Semiconductor Shortages

Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), the leading global semiconductor foundry, unveiled plans in October 2021 to construct its inaugural facility in Japan, signalling a potential surge in expenses as it broadens capacity beyond Taiwan.
