Pretty impressive numbers.
That's roughly $15 billion in yearly revenues which means that only Samsung and Intel is larger (if the comparison make sense, somewhat different businesses).
Does anyone know the percentage of world production i terms of processed wafers that TSMC has? Would be interesting to know.
15 billion is roughly 5% of the total semiconductor revenues. If TSMC production cost is 50% of the end user price then TSMC would have to produce 10% of all wafers in the world to achieve that kind of revenues.
