Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co (TSMC, 台積電) is considering building a third plant in Japan that would make advanced 3-nanometer chips, people familiar with the matter said, potentially turning the East Asian nation into a major global chipmaking hub.

The go-to chipmaker for Nvidia Corp and Apple Inc has told its supply chain partners it is mulling construction of a third factory, code-named TSMC Fab-23 Phase 3, in the southern Japanese prefecture of Kumamoto, the people said, asking not to be named as the information is not public.
