China Has Produced Over 140 Billion Chips So Far This Year

Chinese semiconductor production is hitting new all-time highs. According to the report coming from South China Morning Post, citing the source over at the National Bureau of Statistics, Chinese semiconductor production has grown 37.6% in May of 2021, compared to the same month in 2020. The total chip output resulted in 29.9 billion chips in May, which is quite an impressive growth. In the first five months of this year, Chinese chipmakers have produced an amazing 139.9 billion chips, meaning that at the time of writing that number is much greater. If we compare the same five-month period of 2020, we can see that the chip output has grown 48.3% this year.

While the number of chips produced is not an ideal metric to monitor the growth of semiconductors in China, it is an indication of just how much the Chinese semiconductor industry is growing. The 48.3% growth in chip output is not small by any means, and we can't wait to see the report for the whole year.

Legacy-ZAI don't consider Taiwan part of China and neither does Taiwan. We shouldn't entertain the CCP and their propaganda.
Good point.
However if it says "Made in China" then that's where it's made.

If guys in Taiwan are labeling what they make as that, not alot we can do about it but I seriously doubt they would anyway.

Because they both claim to be China. Though I don't know if they put the label as 'Made in China', I have seen some 'Made in Taiwan', but idk if everything is like that.

Though it's obviously that they are different countries. At the moment at least.

I am a Chinese, but I don't think this number could represent anything.

China will use these chips nefarious reasons. Didn't the US put a hold on the required acid needed for semiconductor production. Biden must have lifted that hold.
