In today’s fast-changing tech landscape, advanced semiconductors drive innovation across industries, powering devices from smartphones to healthcare equipment.

In this graphic, we visualize advanced foundry capacity by country, for 2023 and forecasts for 2027. This data comes from TrendForce, and was published in December 2023.

Advanced vs. Mature Processes

Advanced manufacturing processes refer to ≤16/14 nanometer (nm) nodes. Smaller transistors allow manufacturers to pack more of them onto a single chip, increasing processing power and efficiency.

For example, the iPhone 15 Pro uses Apple’s first chip manufactured with a 3 nm process, while the Playstation 5 uses a 6 nm chip.

Mature processes (28 nm or larger) are cheaper to produce and are used in products that don’t require significant computing power. This includes home appliances and fitness trackers.

Taiwan Still #1 for Foreseeable Future

Taiwan holds 68% of advanced foundry capacity, though this is expected to fall to 60% by 2027 as the U.S. expands its domestic capacity. Taiwanese TSMC tops the list of the largest producer of advanced semiconductors. The company earned 60% (or nearly $17 billion) of semiconductor foundry revenue in Q1 2023.

Japan is also getting into the mix, with Rapidus Corp. aiming to produce 2 nm chips by 2027.

U.S. share of advanced process capacity is expected to increase from 12% to 17% by 2027, although over half of this capacity will come from foreign companies operating in the U.S., such as Samsung or TSMC.

Meanwhile, in response to export controls on advanced chip making equipment by the U.S., China is focusing on mature processes. China’s mature process capacity is set to grow from 31% to 39% by 2027.

One would be hard-pressed to find a company that has never changed its logo. Granted, some brands—like Rolex, IBM, and Coca-Cola—tend to just have more minimalistic updates. But other companies undergo an entire identity change, thus necessitating a full overhaul.

In this graphic, we visualized the evolution of prominent tech companies’ logos over time. All of these brands ranked highly in a Q1 2024 YouGov study of America’s most famous tech brands. The logo changes are sourced from

How Many Times Has Google Changed Its Logo?

Google and Facebook share a 98% fame rating according to YouGov. But while Facebook’s rise was captured in The Social Network (2010), Google’s history tends to be a little less lionized in popular culture.

For example, Google was initially called “Backrub” because it analyzed “back links” to understand how important a website was. Since its founding, Google has undergone eight logo changes, finally settling on its current one in 2015.

Another fun origin story is Microsoft, which started off as Traf-O-Data, a traffic counter reading company that generated reports for traffic engineers. By 1975, the company was renamed. But it wasn’t until 2012 that Microsoft put the iconic Windows logo—still the most popular desktop operating system—alongside its name.

And then there’s Samsung, which started as a grocery trading store in 1938. Its pivot to electronics started in the 1970s with black and white television sets. For 55 years, the company kept some form of stars from its first logo, until 1993, when the iconic encircled blue Samsung logo debuted.

Finally, Apple’s first logo in 1976 featured Isaac Newton reading under a tree—moments before an apple fell on his head. Two years later, the iconic bitten apple logo would be designed at Steve Jobs’ behest, and it would take another two decades for it to go monochrome.
