Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company makes 24% of all the world’s chips, and 92% of the most advanced ones found in today’s iPhones, fighter jets and supercomputers. Now TSMC is building America’s first 5-nanometer fabrication plant, hoping to reverse a decades-long trend of the U.S. losing chip manufacturing to Asia. CNBC got an exclusive tour of the $12 billion fab that will start production in 2024.

TSMC alone was responsible for 24% of the world’s semiconductor output in 2020, up from 21% in 2019, according to the company. When it comes to the most advanced chips used in the latest iPhones, supercomputers and automotive AI, TSMC is responsible for 92% of production while Samsung is responsible for the other 8%, according to research group Capital Economics.

Now one of the world’s ten most valuable companies, TSMC is leveraging its resources to bring the world’s most advanced chip manufacturing back to U.S. soil.

Although TSMC almost never allows U.S. camera crews onto their facilities, CNBC got an exclusive tour of the $12 billion fabrication plant, or fab, outside Phoenix, Arizona, which will make parts for iPhones and the most advanced computer processors.
