Globalfoundries bets on chip 'onshoring' demand ahead of IPO

U.S. chipmaker touts its footprint outside of Asia amid trade uncertainty

Major economies, including the U.S. and Japan, are pushing to build up their domestic semiconductor supply chains while also demanding global chipmakers resolve the unprecedented chip shortage that has forced automakers around the world to cut production.
