Taiwan has effectively cut Russia off from hardware supplies

Taiwan is one of the most important manufacturers of hardware components. It is home to two of the most important semiconductor manufacturers (TSMC, UMC), as well as a number of major brands. Random: Acer, ADATA, ASRock, Asus, BenQ, Biostar, Clevo, Cooler Master, D-Link, Delta Electronics, G.Skill, Gigabyte, Kingmax, MediaTek, MSI, Nuvoton, Pegatron, PowerColor, Realtek, Sea Sonic, Transcend , VIA, dozens of other key players for the global IT industry and hundreds of smaller brands.

The Ministry of Economy of Taiwan has announced a decision banning the export of goods in any of the 57 defined areas, which include, but are not limited to, telecommunications equipment, integrated circuits and components, as well as frequency converters. The only legal way to export these goods to Russia is to apply for an exemption (which must be approved).

Taking into account the general areas of the ban in combination with the Taiwanese brands key to the computer world, it means practically cutting Russia off from new hardware. The second thing is, of course, the practical impact – in case of interest, you can always look for alternative ways to get the relevant components into the ground.

According to ministry statistics, Taiwan exported $ 1.3 billion worth of goods to Russia in 2021, while imports reached $ 5 billion. Trade with Russia accounted for 0.76% of total Taiwanese trade.
