Post-Earthquake Survey Update: Taiwan's Wafer Foundry and DRAM Production Unaffected, Says TrendForce

4 April 2024

TrendForce has provided an update on the dynamics of Taiwan's semiconductor factories following the earthquake on April 3rd. Most wafer foundries were situated in areas that experienced a Level 4 intensity shake. Owing to the high-spec construction standards of Taiwan's semiconductor factories, which feature world-class seismic mitigation measures capable of reducing seismic impacts by 1 to 2 levels, the facilities were largely able to resume operations after inspection shutdowns quickly. Even though there were instances of wafer breakages or damages due to emergency shutdowns or earthquake damages, the capacity utilization rates of mature process factories—averaging between 50–80%—meant that losses were quickly recovered after operations resumed, resulting in only minor impacts on capacity.

Minimal Initial Damage to DRAM and Foundry Production Lines Following Major Earthquake in Taiwan on April 3; Details of Losses Still Under Assessment, Says TrendForce

3 April 2024

In the wake of a 7.2-magnitude earthquake off the eastern coast of Taiwan at 7:58 AM on April 3rd, TrendForce immediately investigated the damage and operational status of various manufacturers. The DRAM industry, primarily located in the northern and central parts of Taiwan, and the foundry industry, spread across the north, central, and southern regions of Taiwan, appear to have sustained minimal initial damage.

Impact of the April 3rd Earthquake on Taiwan’s Display Panel Industry Is Expected to Bolster Panel Prices, Says TrendForce

3 April 2024

An earthquake with a magnitude of 7.2 occurred off the eastern coast of Taiwan at 7:58 AM on April 3rd. Continuous aftershocks have left most machinery at AU Optronics and Innolux in a state of shutdown. According to the latest investigation by TrendForce.
