You know, I have some bad feeling of consolidation in packaging sector down the line...

It's intriguing, maybe inevitable. So I guess we would expect Samsung and Intel to do the same?

And to improve outcomes - by having it all in-house and well-coordinated; especially important, I'd venture, for heterogeneous TSV-based stacks.

The OSATs can probably compete against TSMC on cost basis but TSMC can still push their new packaging capabilities on grounds of better resolution of chip - package integration issues or just hold back on wafer supply. But one would think that TSMC will target its capabilities for the higher end of packaging ( e,g. MCMs using Flip Chip and 3D using TSVs ) in order to justify their higher margins.

Sometimes, I just think that TSMC has nothing more to do. It is interesting how this great company is winning. Congrats for this expansion. More revenue.
