Samsung reduces the CIS market share gap with Sony

Published

on

Samsung has narrowed the market share gap with Sony, the industry leader in the CMOS image sensor (CIS) market last year. Despite sales of the CIS, Samsung Electronics increased by more than 10%, while Sony stood.

According to a report, the semiconductor market research company, Sony’s share in the global CIS market last year was 40%, down 2% from the previous year (42%). On the other hand, Samsung’s market share was 22%, up slightly 1% from 2019 (21%).

Behind these two companies, OmniVision (12%), STMicroelectronics (6%), Galaxy Core (4%), ON Semi (4%), SK Hynix (2%), Panasonic ( 1%), SmartSense (1%) followed by Canon (1%).

However, it has been increasing its share since then. The industry analyzes that Samsung has been able to grow rapidly through its semiconductor memory for CIS design and production capacity. In addition, the company has managed to gain access to its Galaxy smartphone brand by focusing on the CIS for smartphones, which is also considered a growth factor.

In fact, sales of the Sony and Sensing Solutions (I&SS) segment last year were 10.72 trillion won, down 5% from 2019. This is because the production of Huawei’s smartphone was suspended due to US sanctions, and CIS sales of smartphones have declined. The situation is the same this year.

Sony plans to continue growing the product to maintain its 1st market share. Sony has started the CIS production of new Fab 5 smartphones (48,000m) completed in Nagasaki Prefecture since last April. It also announced that it plans to expand another fabric in the Nagasaki region. Sony aims to increase its market share of image sensors to 60% by 2025.

In response, Samsung Electronics plans to expand its business to the automotive sensor sector at an additional cost. In July, Samsung Electronics launched its first product, ISOCELL Auto 4AC, with a car sensor.

Meanwhile, the global CIS market last year was estimated at $ 20.7 billion (24 trillion 202.4 billion won). In this case, smartphone and consumer components accounted for 72% of sales. Computing, automotive, and security (smart car, smart home, smart building) each have 8%. The CIS market is expected to continue to grow. By 2026, the market size is expected to rise to $31.5 billion (36.823.5 billion won).

Samsung SDI partners with Stelantis to build battery production plant in US for electric vehicles

Published

Samsung

Samsung SDI has signed an agreement with Stellantis to run a joint venture to build a car battery factory in the United States. The evolution of the Samsung SDI draws a resemblance to the LG Energy Solution, which announced the day before that it would build a partnership with the same global team and build a 40-gigawatt EV battery plant in the US.

While the details remain unclear, such as the value of the partnership agreement, Stellantis may be the first car maker Samsung SDI to build a partnership with. Also, the world’s No. 4 automaker is expected to provide a channel for Samsung SDI to seek expansion in the US, as the South Korean battery manufacturer still doesn’t have a battery production base in the country.

The integrated battery factory will allow Samsung SDI to exceed the tariff in accordance with the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, which came into effect last year. Under the USMCA, vehicles must contain 75 percent of North American components including batteries, or they will face regional charges from 2025.

As battery plants typically take two to three years to complete, this year was the last opportunity for Samsung SDI to meet the 2025 threshold. The new battery plant will increase the number of Samsung SDI’s global production bases to four. The three it has now are in Ulsan, China’s Xian, and Hungary’s God.

Samsung SDI currently supplies its batteries to Stellantis brands such as Jeep and Fiat. The Jeep Wrangler 4xe, a model that became famous after President Joe Biden test drove it, is powered by Samsung SDI batteries.

Stellantis, launched after the merger of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and French auto giant PSA earlier this year, aims to pour 30 billion euros ($34.9 billion) into electrification by 2025. Meanwhile, Samsung SDI last month unveiled a plan to mass-produce next-generation solid-state batteries that would exhibit a range of 900 kilometers.
