Samsung targets 25% foundry share

  • Author:Ella Cai
  • Release on:2017-07-25
Samsung is targeting a 25% share of the foundry market by 2022, E.S.Jung (pictured), head of Samsung’s foundry business, told Reuters earlier today. Currently Samsung holds a 7.9% foundry share.

TSMC has over 50% share, GloFo 9.6% and UMC 8.1%.

Samsung is betting on an early move to 7nm process technology to help secure its foundry aspirations. It says it will be in production on 7nm in H2 2018 for its foundry customers.

Samsung is currently building its most advanced fab at Hwaseong in Korea which will run both memory and foundry logic.

Samsung says it may invest as much as $22 billion in semiconductor capex this year – the year it expects to overtake Intel as the No.1 chip manufacturer.
