Taiwan sees limited impact from Ukraine war on chip supply chain
TAIPEI (Reuters) -Taiwan expects little impact from the war in Ukraine on the supply of key raw materials for semiconductors, the government said on Saturday. Taiwan is a major chip manufacturer, home to the world’s largest contract chip maker and Asia’s most valuable listed company, TSMC, and key to alleviating a global shortage of semiconductors which have in some cases forced auto production lines to shutter. The cabinet, following a meeting chaired by Vice Premier Shen Jong-chin, said three key raw materials for making chips – the gases neon and C4F6 as well as the metal palladium – would not see much impact.
