TSMC has been concerned about the concentration of chip manufacturing capacity in Taiwan

Both Sony and TSMC declined to comment, but Denso couldn’t comment immediately. TSMC, the world’s largest contract chip maker and Apple Inc’s leading supplier, said in July that it was considering a production plan in Japan.

TSMC is concerned that its chip manufacturing capacity is concentrated in Taiwan, which produces most of the world’s most advanced chips. China has not ruled out the use of force to bring democratic islands under control.

Japanese officials are also concerned about the stability of the industry’s supply chain as automakers are forced to cut production due to a global chip shortage.
