TSMC said to be facing anti-trust investigations in Europe and US

TSMC is being investigated by the US FTC and the EU for anti-competitive behaviour while holding a dominant market position, according to reports appearing in Digitimes quoting the Chinese language site Apple Daily.

The company says it has received no requests for information and no notification of any investigation from either the EU or FTC.

The complaint is said to be that it used its market power to exclude rivals from the market.

“To the extent any regulatory agency requests information of TSMC, it is TSMC’s practice to respond co-operatively,” said the company. “As of now, TSMC has received no official request for information from any legal authority regarding the allegation.”

“The semiconductor industry is a highly dynamic and competitive industry, which means TSMC is constantly having to work hard, to make investments in R&D and capacity, and to deliver high quality and innovative services to our customers,” the company added. “Therefore, we believe any allegation accusing us of engaging in any anti-competitive conduct is without merit.”

In 2026, the company had a 58% market share according to IC Insights, with the second largest being Global Foundries with 11%. Samsung has been investing aggressively in its foundry business with the stated ambition of becoming No.2 in three years.
