Intel is building a $20 billion computer chip facility in Ohio : NPR. Intel is building a $20 billion computer chip facility in Ohio Two chip factories on a 1,000-acre site just east of Columbus are expected to create 3,000 company jobs and 7,000 construction jobs, the company and local and state officials say.
The world's largest semiconductor foundry, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Limited (NYSE:TSM), plans to spend $40-$44 billion in capital expenditures in 2022, as compared to roughly $30 billion in 2021.
American technology company Intel says it plans to build a $29-billion computer chip manufacturing center in the state of Ohio. Two chip factories will be built on a 400-hectare site northeast of the city of Columbus, the company announced on January 21.
Intel, the world's largest semiconductor manufacturer announced plans Friday to build a new $20 billion factory outside of Columbus, Ohio. The Ohio project, which will be Intel's first new manufacturing site in 40 years, includes two semiconductor fabrication plants, or what the company calls fabs.
TSMC to Build Plant in Arizona
According to CNBC, the new plant in Phoenix, Arizona, will cost TSMC $12 billion. The company will begin making 5-nanometer chips and be launched in 2024.
TSMC's $12 billion 5-nanometer chip fabrication plant is six months into being built in northern Phoenix, Arizona, on September 28, 2021. TSMC alone was responsible for 24% of the world's semiconductor output in 2020, up from 21% in 2019, according to the company.
The U.S. plant is TSMC's most advanced chip facility outside its home market. The project was announced in May 2020, and construction started last June. For comparison, TSMC is often able to reach the equipment move-in phase for new plants in Taiwan in around 15 months, and in some cases as little as 12 months.
Ford is taking a do-it-yourself approach to addressing the severe shortage in chips that has slowed its production lines and snarled supply chains around the world. The carmaker announced a partnership yesterday with the semiconductor manufacturer GlobalFoundries to develop its own chips.
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Chipmaker Intel said Friday it will invest $20 billion to build a new factory in Ohio, an attempt to help alleviate a global shortage of chips powering everything from phones to cars to home appliances while also signaling the giant company's commitment to manufacturing crucial technology products ...
Intel Corporation is the world's largest semiconductor chip maker based on its 2020 sales. It is the inventor of the x86 series of microprocessors found in most personal computers today.
TSMC reported revenue of $15.74 billion, above its $15.4 – $15.7 guidance. It achieved gross margin of 52.7%. Return on equity of 31.3% is a strong 0.6 ppt sequential increase from Q3/2021. TSMC benefited from 7nm accounting for 27% of revenue.
The Biggest Semiconductor Companies
U.S. TSMC, short for Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company, is by far the world's largest chip manufacturer. It's also the sixth most valuable company in the world with a market cap of over $600 billion, and supplies chips to the likes of Apple, Intel, and Nvidia.
Only two Asian companies, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company and Samsung, make the world's most advanced 5-nanometer chips. These semiconductors power Apple's latest iPhones and make cutting-edge data processing possible.
The supply chain in the $500 billion semiconductor industry is extremely complex, particularly for chips used in cars. Key suppliers include NXP Semiconductors and STMicroelectronics in Europe, Renesas Electronics in Japan, and Onsemi and Microchip Technology in the United States.
Ford plans to increase its short- and long-term supply of semiconductor chips through a new partnership with GlobalFoundries. The companies on Thursday announced the signing of a nonbinding agreement for a strategic partnership that aims to increase the supply of chips to Ford from GlobalFoundries.

The computer chip industry was created in America in the 1950s and '60s, but it's been decades since the United States has dominated chip production. Over the past 30 years, the U.S. share of global semiconductor production has fallen from near 40 percent to 12 percent.
Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co., or TSMC, is the world's largest contract manufacturer of the semiconductor chips—otherwise known as integrated circuits, or just chips—that power our phones, laptops, cars, watches, refrigerators and more. Its clients include Apple, Intel, Qualcomm, AMD and Nvidia.
According to city documents, the general contractor of the fab projects is Dallas-based Austin Commercial. The water resource center, the next largest building on the site, will be two stories tall and 344,000 square feet.
Taiwan accounts for half of the overall production of microchips that are critical to the functioning of mobile phones, consumer electronics, cars, military equipment and more.
TSMC has pushed back the move-in date for its Arizona plant from September 2022 to March 2023 because of multiple factors impacting construction and increased competition with Intel for labor. Construction for the Taiwan Semiconductor chip fabrication plant in the United States began in June 2021.
TSMC will bring an advanced semiconductor fab to a roughly 1,050-acre campus north of Loop 303 and west of Interstate 17. Construction on the first phase of the first building at the Sonoran Oasis Science and Technology Park is ongoing and should be completed by July 2022.
