TSMC for its production due to a 7.4 magnitude earthquake, will there be a shortage?

A earthquake in Taiwan causes the cessation of production in several factories, including TSMC. It causes chaos in the entire country.

Let’s hope that the Taiwanese are well and there are as few victims as possible because the earthquake has been devastating. The images of buildings falling are disheartening, leaving evidence of how strong it has been. The country is recovering right now, and the cessation of production will affect the supply chain.

TSMC stops production due to earthquake in Taiwan

The giant semiconductor manufacturer has to stop its Taiwan factories for magnitude 7.4 earthquake on the Richter scale. Although TSMC has plants in other parts of the world, those in Taiwan are the most specialized or advanced so far.

It is not yet clear whether there will be a supply chain impact or in the products that were due to be released at the end or even in mid-2024. The most affected part of this earthquake is the city of Hualienwith Internet outages and buildings of more than 5 floors falling.

Right now, Taiwan is on alert for Tsunami risk, which would be a fatal blow for the country. With COVID-19 we saw what impact it has when semiconductor factories in Asia stop production: high prices and non-existent stock.

The NVIDIA RTX 4000 came in price drops along with the AMD Radeon RX 7000, but we will not know if we will see the same trend after what happened. And it is no wonder because

Do you think it will have an important impact?
