According to reports, TSMC notified all customers on the 25th to increase the price of its foundry services, which will take effect immediately, including orders produced on the same day and orders placed.

The report pointed out that due to the continuous supply shortage and the rising prices of silicon wafers and other raw materials, TSMC's gross profit margin has dropped from 52.4% in the first quarter to 50.0% in the second quarter.

According to IC Design Company, TSMC’s price increase is about 7% to 9% for 7nm and 5nm, and prices for other mature process technologies are up about 20%.

According to insiders in the semiconductor industry, TSMC’s latest price increase is effective immediately, and the increase is higher and wider than expected. It is expected that the price of iPhone 13 and some electronic products may increase.
