TAIPEI -- Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co., the world's biggest contract chipmaker and a key Apple supplier, expects a 30% jump in revenue this year thanks to pandemic-driven demand for digital solutions and aggressive 5G smartphone launches.

Revenue for the final quarter of 2020 could be between $12.4 billion and $12.7 billion, TSMC said on Thursday. That is higher than the market consensus and up around 20% on the year at the midpoint in dollar terms.
