If or when a downturn hits again, many see TSMC buying SMIC. TSMC already owns 10% of SMIC. Comments out there?

We can't assume that SMIC will always be the only story in town. China is reported to have allocated $25B for the IC industry. A different company with a better market story, a better understanding of China's special needs, and having a more cohesive, localized team might become the new focus for government support. We will see.

The Chinese will not allow it to fail and they have the cash to ensure that.

I agree with you. China is a state capitalism and it is not possible that anyone can allow any of those quasi state firms to collapse. I think this firm will be reinvigorated and will become a major competitor. Think of TSMC in coming years.

Chinese government will not let SMIC to fail, even it never makes money in the long term.

I think Intel may consider moving into foundry, just like Samsung. So that would be even worse for SMIC.

Will SMIC survive in the long term? Thoughts out there...
