Machines, big and small, all rely on one component, semiconductor. Be it computers, telecommunications, household appliances, banking, security, healthcare, transportation, manufacturing, and last but not least, war-making machinery, all depend upon semiconductors.

Do you know, just like Rare Earth Elements (REE), India had a beginner’s advantage in semiconductor manufacturing? But bureaucratic apathy and red-tapism floundered every opportunity that came India’s way.

  1. Great article. Taiwan’s semiconductor industry certainly plays in China’s interest in re-acquiring the island. With that asset, they would gain a much stronger lead in the industry and at least a temporary military advantage.
