Samsung announced $17 billion advanced chip plant in Taylor, Texas

South Korean tech giant Samsung is set to announce a $ 17 billion state-of-the-art chip plant on 1,200 acres of land in Taylor, Texas. According to the Wall Street Journal, the plant, which makes advanced logic chips used in mobile phones and autonomous vehicles, will add 1,800 jobs to the US economy and be part of a $ 205 billion investment fund. The factory is unlikely to be operational until 2024.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott will make a “financial statement” today confirming the plan. Despite previous reports that the world’s largest memory chipmaker was also looking at sites in Arizona and New York, Samsung took over the Texas offer due to a profitable 90% tax deduction in the first 10 years.

Samsung already has a plant operating in Austin, Texas, but the upcoming plant is also expected to be bigger. Samsung says it has not yet made a final decision regarding location, so it is still possible to change things.

The news comes at a crucial time in the wake of a global semiconductor shortage that will continue until 2023. The Biden administration also sees the region as a major competitor to China. The U.S. share in manufacturing is declining, so the Senate recently approved a  52 billion subsidy for new chipmaking plants.

Samsung sells a lot of chipsets to US customers like Qualcomm and Nvidia and the new chip foundry makes things easier and cheaper for chipmakers. TSMC, one of Samsung’s biggest competitors in space, also has a $12 billion plant that will begin production in Arizona in 2024, while Intel plans for the US for the next 10 years.

Samsung managed to reverse its decline and retain top position in MEA smartphone market

Published

Samsung

According to the latest report from Counterpoint’s Market Monitor Service, the smartphone shipments in the MEA (Middle East and Africa) region increased 1% YY and 7.5% QoQ in Q3 2021, respectively.

Among the major OEMs in the MEA smartphone market, all except Samsung and Xiaomi recorded year-on-year growth. As most of the product availability issues have been resolved, Samsung has bounced back from the lows in Q2. We hope that Samsung will further strengthen its grip at the top of the MEA smartphone table during the busy Q4 shopping season.

Transition brands like TECNO, itel and Infinix are the big winners from this epidemic. Overall, the company increased its market share from 19% in Q3 2020 to 30.5% in Q3 2021 due to strong sales in Africa and successful ventures in other regions.

Samsung MEA Smartphone Market Q3 2021

Oppo and Vivo have also made significant gains over the past year as both brands continue to double their efforts to improve channel entrance and device availability. Xiaomi, which has seen tremendous growth over the past year, fell sharply in Q3 due to severe component shortages and inventory management issues.

It declined for three reasons – first, the performance of premium brands such as Apple and Samsung, whose iPhone 12 and 13 series and Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Flip 3 series were particularly popular in developed GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) countries; Second, the introduction of new Chinese brands.

And third, Transsion, which dominates the low-cost segment in sub-Saharan Africa, has had initial success due to its branding and portfolio upgrades, providing more sophisticated devices to entry-level customers.

Looking at the flagship models, the 2in1 laptop ‘Galaxy Book 2 Pro 360’ and the ultra-slim laptop ‘Galaxy Book 2 Pro’ 5G model will be produced by 300,000 units from the second quarter of next year.
