The demand for foundry makers varies depending on the application, such as consumer electronics, automotive, and industrial. They produce the required I/C in various technological nodes, such as 7nm, 10nm, 20nm, and so on, depending on the application. IoT adoption, 5G business, self-driving vehicles, datacenters, and gaming are just a few of the major areas driving semiconductor demand.
TSMC and Samsung Foundry are well-known for dominating the contract chip manufacturing market. They are the only ones who can provide cutting-edge process technologies and have the most capacity.
The semiconductor foundry market is consolidated due to a major share of the market is occupied by top players. The top 5 companies in the industry accounts for nearly 90% of the total market share.
TSMC was founded in 1987 and is headquartered in Hsinchu Science Park, Taiwan. It was the first pure-play foundry to focus solely on manufacturing customers’ products. The Company ensures that it never competes with its customers by refusing to design, manufacture, or market any semiconductor products under its own name.
Samsung Electronics inspires the world and shapes the future with transformative ideas and technologies that give people the power to discover new experiences. With a constant focus on innovation and discovery, they keep redefining the worlds of TVs, smartphones, wearable devices, tablets, digital appliances, network systems, and memory, system LSI, foundry and LED solutions.
