  • With 2Q 2022 delivering a revenue of $18.16 billion for TSMC, if this trend continues, the company is likely to post a total revenue of around $70 billion for the year 2022.

In 2021, total semiconductor sales was nearly $590 billion of which contract chip manufacturing (foundry) was around $108 billion (references can be found in this article).

Taiwan's TSMC topped the foundry segment with a revenue of about $57 billion which meant a market share of about 53 per cent (in the foundry segment).

In the overall semiconductor sales, TSMC had about 10 per cent of the revenue and stood third behind Samsung ($73.2 billion) and Intel ($72.5 billion).

With 2Q 2022 delivering a revenue of $18.16 billion for TSMC, if this trend continues, the company is likely to post a total revenue of around $70 billion for the year 2022.

TSMC said it expected third-quarter revenue to surge to between $19.8 billion and $20.6 billion from $14.88 billion a year earlier. It raised its 2022 revenue growth forecast to mid-30s percentage from an earlier 26-29 per cent range.

Whether rest of the foundries are also growing at the same rate is not clear yet, but if they do and TSMC continues to hold a market share of about 53-54 per cent by end of the year, that would mean total foundry revenue for 2022 will be around $130 billion.
