The semiconductor boom has grown against the trend under the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The three major foundries of TSMC, World and UMC have increased their employees’ salaries in April and May. TSMC’s salary increase in April increased by about 3% to 3%. Five; The world will also increase salary by 3% starting in April; UMC will adjust salary in May without announcing the adjustment rate, but it is expected to be better than last year and the increase rate is in the first half of the semiconductor class.
Both TSMC and the world have made structural major salary adjustments since January of this year. TSMC has substantially increased their principal and salary by 20%.

The adjustment is higher than last year.
Japan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co., Ltd. announced that it will increase its monthly production capacity of 40,000 28nm mature process at its Nanjing plant in mainland China. UMC is also expanding its 28nm production line at Nanke P5 Plant and Continental Lianxin. The production capacity highlights that the chip shortage has exploded from the previous 40 to 65 nanometers, and has expanded to 28 nanometers. In the short term, new production capacity is not easy to open, including the continued bullish price of 8-inch and 12-inch wafer foundry.
