According to current estimates, Samsung will replace this year as the largest chip maker in the world.
According to the US research company IC Insight, the South Korean conglomerate Samsung will surpass the semiconductor manufacturer from California in the second or third quarter and can now be described as the world’s largest chip maker. Intel became the world’s largest chip maker in 1993 and was able to defend this position over two decades. It was only with the boom of the smartphones and the IoT, Samsung as a manufacturer, the giant chip overtake.
Intel continues to be the largest manufacturer in the CPU market. Samsung, on the other hand, can grow by the production of DRAM and NAND chips in the mobile sector. Currently, Intel is already pursuing the goal of further establishing itself in the IOT sector and has already initiated major restructuring measures around a year ago.
