The best mobile phones for cars and efficient computing this year, and the Internet of Things is close to the growth average
TSMC estimates that this year’s high-performance computing and automotive demand will be better than the company’s average revenue growth rate, mobile phones and the Internet of Things will be close to average, and the advanced packaging and other processes in the latter stage will be slightly better than average.
