Samsung is one of the most important chip manufacturers in the world, with large market shares in both the DRAM and NAND segments and integrated circuit manufacturing. The South Korean has been planned to be at the top of the industry by 2030, and to achieve this it will invest about 115,000 million dollars in order to strengthen its competitiveness in the business. It is currently among the top three manufacturers, along with Intel and TSMC, after the departure of other big names in the nanometer race, such as GlobalFoundries. Intel, on the other hand, devotes its development efforts to its own products, so in reality only Samsung and TSMC remain as main manufacturers for third parties.
Samsung’s investment plans are divided into two: they will devote 73 trillion won to R & D, while the other 60 trillion will go to the production infrastructure. On average, about 11 trillion won per year will be invested up to 2030, with the consequent creation of employment, which is expected of 15,000 jobs in R & D and production. This commitment, apart from being a turning point for TSMC, will mean an advance for the technology and PC industry, given that competition will always shakes the market.
