The STSP recruits major industries, including the IC, optoelectronics, precision machinery, telecommunications, computer peripherals, biotechnology, and so on. Among them, the optoelectronics industry, the IC industry, and the biotechnology industry have demonstrated remarkable achievements that help to form a comprehensive integrated high-tech industrial cluster.
As an IC foundry leader, TSMC has set up its five nanometer and three nanometer advanced manufacturing processes in the STSP, making the STSP the world’s largest scale of IC industrial cluster. For the optoelectronics industry, led by Innolux and HannStar, the core strength of panel displays is developed. Products include TV screens in various sizes, as well as niche applications for vehicles and the healthcare field that will be the main trend for the continuous development of the industry.
a.Strength of the IC industrial cluster
TSMC and UMC continuously expand their capacities at the STSP. TSMC invested its three nanometer and five nanometer advanced manufacturing processes at the STSP that attract relevant manufacturers to invest in the Park, which makes the STSP’s IC industrial cluster more integrated. The industrial chain includes upstream material and component manufacturers of CMP slurry, quartz tube, deposition materials and polishing pads; middle stream suppliers of silicon wafers and memory technology; and downstream suppliers of package tests, product tests, and equipment.
b.Strength of the 5G industrial cluster
The 5G industrial cluster of Southern Taiwan Science Park has already assembled the important industrial chains for material and key components. Inside the Park there are outstanding tenant companies such as Win Semiconductors, Walshin Technology, Winstron Neweb, Garuda Technology, Advanced Wireless Semiconductor, Apogee Optocom, and Thinflex. In the future for 5G development, STSP aims to invite more companies in the software and information security industry. Through the interdisciplinary industrial development of software and hardware, it will keep on accelerating the innovation and transformation development of the Park.
c.Strength of the optoelectronic industry
The STSP has a comprehensive integrated TFT-LCD panel industrial cluster led by Innolux and HannStar. The integration consists of upstream key components (such as glass substrate, liquid crystal materials, color filters, brightness enhancement films and prism sheets, masks, backlight modules), equipment and downstream LCD panel makers. For horizontal support, equipment manufacturers from various countries are also present at the STSP, forming Taiwan’s most important TFT-LCD industrial cluster.
d.Strength of the biomedical industrial cluster
STSP has the largest biomedical industrial cluster in southern Taiwan, covering industries of vaccine manufacturing, pharmaceutical, diagnostic testing, dentistry, orthopedics, cosmetic surgery, and precision health. To complete the development of an innovative ecosystem and biomedical industrial cluster in the science park, the STSPB takes advantages of the existing ICT and biomedical industries for interdisciplinary application with pharmaceutics and medical devices. The biomedical industrial cluster in the STSP provides services including the development of products and technologies, clinical trials, trainings, GDP certificates in Taiwan and abroad, and oversea market expansion. By linking up momentum of industries, academies, and research institutions in Chiayi, Tainan, Kaohsiung, and Pingtung to promote precision health industrial chain, the biomedical industrial cluster of the STSP helps enhance the revenue and export value of biomedical products with versatile marketing approaches for market expansion at home and abroad.
