With the increase in the production of smartphones and other gadgets, the demand for semiconductors is also skyrocketing. In the Group of Seven (G7) Leaders Summit, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida has a meeting with the senior executives of the seven semiconductor manufacturers.

TSMC Chairman Liu Deyin was also a part of the meeting. The executives who took part in the meeting threw light on the importance of semiconductors that contribute to the development of high-end technologies like Artificial Intelligence (AI). These executives also They said they would invest in Japan to develop the semiconductors industry.

Talking about the stats, TSMC has already invested an amount of 8.6 billion USD in companies like Japan’s Sony Semiconductor and automotive electronics manufacturer DENSO to develop a new fab in Kumamoto Prefecture, Kyushu. Japan and even received subsidies of up to 476 billion yen.

Micron stated that it would also invest a sum of up to 500 billion yen in 1-gamma process technology and introduce ASML and extreme ultraviolet (EUV) wafer manufacturing equipment in the Hiroshima plant for the production of DRAM chips. This will happen for the first time in the Japanese Semiconductor industry. Not only this, but Samsung also mentioned that it would establish a research and development center along with a semiconductor back-end packaging and testing in a production line in Yokohama.

Talking about the past, Japan’s semiconductor industry once attained its peak in the 1980s, when it captured almost 50% of the global market. However, in the future, it went down due to differences between the semiconductor strategy of the United States of America (USA) and Japan.

Another reason that contributed to the downfall of the Japanese semiconductor market was Taiwan and South Korea. The proposal of increasing the layout of the Japanese semiconductor supply chain by tycoons like Samsung, Micron, and TSMC is definitely going
to take it to new heights.
