Samsung has all the intellectual and technical resources that it can survive plenty of challenges as is presently durable and financially enough. But currently, Samsung’s chip business seems to be performing very sluggishly, even after making huge investments of $93.2 billion into its foundry business from 2017 to 2021 and the present.
It’s a fact that Samsung is a huge company, but there could be a certain problem in the company’s current management that is not up to the task. Many popular blogs are talking about Samsung that its semiconductor business is struggling, and is not growing faster than its rivals are doing.
Samsung Electronics has already spent a lot of amount on chip-making and Semiconductor foundries whether they are placed on home ground, mainland China or in Texas, United States of America. We have seen previously that Samsung‘s own System-on-Chip failed to meet the expectations and this previously happened with the Exynos 2200. Which was not faster than Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8Gen 1 made using the same process and technology.
Samsung is lagging behind TSMC, Intel, and Micron when it comes to performance. Who knows where the flaw is? However, Samsung is a South Korea’s vertical integrated chaebol that has the advantage of massive production over these companies, as it is dealing with consumer appliances, and the home appliance sector and have mastered its own Chip EUV lithography technology.
Moreover, We hope the raw material pricing and availability could smoothen in the second half of the year 2022 which could make a change in the coming days.
