The factory in Arizona will have a production capacity of 20,000 products per month. It is likely to generate a total of 1,600 direct jobs for highly qualified professionals. As well as thousands of other indirect jobs related to the ecosystem of semiconductors.

If everything goes according to plan, the construction of this new factory will begin in 2021 and will complete by the end of 2023. This means that the production of the first products will start sometime in 2024, which is a long-term investment. It is likely that the said plant could also face a transition to the 3nm chipset production when necessary.

In total, TSMC will also invest $12 billion from 2021 to 2029 in this project. The Taiwanese giant has not specified what kind of support it has received from the United States federal government. And the Arizona state government to carry out this project. However, it may still have closed significant financial aid and fiscal advantages.
