Foundries end 2019 with a sales bang
TSMC and UMC, two foundries that serve as an indicator for the semiconductor industry, both achieved strong year-on-year sales growth in December. TSMC was able to make 2019 a growth year despite a weak first half.

TSMC's sales in December were NT$103.31 billion (about US$3.44 billion), down sequentially in line with seasonal norms but up 15.0 percent compared with a year before. For the whole of 2019 TSMC's sales were NT$1,069.99 billion (about US$35.66 billion) up 3.7 percent on its sales in 2018.

At UMC sales in December were NT$13.37 billion (about US$445 million), slightly down sequentially but up 17.4 percent compared with the previous year.

For 2019 UMC's sales were NT$151.25 billion (about US$5.04 billion). The 4Q19 showed strong annual growth of about 18 percent but this did not quite offset declines in the first three quarters. For UMC the full year was down 2.0 percent on 2018.
