According to Wang Mei-hua, Taiwan's economy minister, Malaysia could be important in relieving the pressure of the worldwide chip shortage!
For the last 2 years, the whole world has been dealing with a chip crisis due to the pandemic, disruptions in the supply chain, negative events in the factories, and the fact that technological devices have more chips than before. According to Taiwan, Malaysia can ease the pressure and play a key role in this regard.
Especially Malaysia, which is likely to play a key role in the packaging of semiconductor chips, can solve and relieve Taiwan's packaging problem with the pandemic.
Taiwan's packaging segment has been hit hard by the coronavirus, according to Mei-Hua. Especially Taiwan is doing its best to solve this problem. Taiwan is one of the most important chip manufacturers, he said.
In other words, it is difficult for Taiwan to get through this process without help. The automatic chip packaging facilities in Malaysia continue the business, unlike Taiwan. In addition, Malaysia works with an instantaneous efficiency of 80%, and if it reaches 100% efficiency, the situation may be even more relaxed.
Malaysia has become the favorite of many chip manufacturers. Last year, Intel announced that it would invest another 7 billion dollars in its facilities in Malaysia. Brands such as Infineon and STMicroelectronics also stated that they trust Malaysian suppliers.
With this move by Malaysia, the industry may relax a little more. Toyota had allowed the use of faulty parts in its cars due to chip shortages, and many auto factories had to stop production. The prices of many products, from computers to phones, have increased, and many companies have delayed certain products due to the chip crisis.
How do you think the situation will be? Is Taiwan justified in trusting Malaysia?
