Recently, the global semiconductor industry is facing serious problems. This is written by the British edition of Verdict.

The trend towards economic nationalism was strengthened during the coronavirus pandemic and has reached its maximum now, against the backdrop of events in Ukraine. Now countries do not want to share either advanced technologies or new microprocessors and microcircuits. The publication calls it a “cold war” in the semiconductor industry.
At the same time, the semiconductor industry is seeing increased competition between the US and China. Now the Celestial Empire is rapidly breaking into a leading position in the field of artificial intelligence, which implies success in the semiconductor industry. The US is trying to resist this process and impose restrictions on the sale of chips to China, while supporting Taiwan.
For example, on October 7, the US announced a new set of restrictions on the sale of chips used for artificial intelligence. This led to a fall in the shares of chipmakers NVIDIA and AMD. Thus, we see that competition in the industry is only growing, and governments are trying to introduce restrictive measures to prevent technology leakage…
