(TSMC Consolidated October Revenue)
TSMC’s cumulative revenue for the first 10 months of 2023 stood at an impressive US$55.6 billion, showcasing a modest 3.7% decline from the corresponding period in 2022.
The company’s resilience in navigating the challenges posed by weaker global demand in certain sectors, particularly consumer electronics, is evident in these numbers.
The surge in demand for TSMC’s cutting-edge 3nm technology played a pivotal role in its ADR surging more than 6% following the earnings release.
C. C. Wei, TSMC’s CEO, expressed unwavering optimism regarding the chip market during a recent statement. He anticipates that the company will soon overcome the challenges of a prolonged sluggishness, primarily attributed to the lingering effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The surge in the AI industry, driven by an increased need for chips used in training large language models, has significantly contributed to TSMC’s positive outlook.
TSMC’s third-quarter revenue surge was underpinned by its advanced technology, with the 3nm, 5nm, and 7nm processes collectively accounting for an impressive 59% of the company’s total revenue.
Looking ahead, TSMC is set to push the boundaries further by mass-producing an even more advanced 2nm process in 2025. This ambitious move is poised to solidify TSMC’s position as a trailblazer in high-end technology development.
As we look toward the future, TSMC’s fourth-quarter revenue for 2023 is anticipated to range between US$18.8 billion and US$19.6 billion, with an estimated midpoint of US$19.2 billion (approximately NT$614.4 billion at the current exchange rate of NT$32 per US$1).
This represents an impressive approximately 11.1% increase on a quarterly basis. Despite the expectation of a slight dip in revenue in November and December compared to the stellar October figures, TSMC remains confident in achieving its financial forecast target.
The company estimates that the revenue in the remaining two months will average around US$5.84 billion.
In conclusion, TSMC’s stellar performance in October is a testament to its resilience, technological prowess, and strategic vision.
The company’s commitment to advancing semiconductor technology, coupled with its optimistic outlook despite global challenges, positions TSMC as a formidable leader in the high-end technology landscape.
As TSMC continues to push the boundaries of innovation, the industry watches eagerly to witness the unfolding chapters of its success story.
