Intel‘s outsourcing intentions may promote the development of Samsung‘s foundry business

Time:2020-08-03 Views:488
Samsung Electronics Co.‘s foundry business is expected to grow further in the second half of this year, and analysts said on Saturday that their expectations for receiving orders from Intel are increasing.
The world’s largest memory chip manufacturer said in its second-quarter financial report that its foundry business’s quarterly and half-yearly revenue reached record highs, although no exact figures were disclosed.
The South Korean technology giant added that the increase in customer inventory has led to strong earnings in its contract chip manufacturing business.
Yuanta Securities analyst Li Zaiyun said: "Currently in the foundry industry, only Samsung and TSMC (TSMC) can provide extreme ultraviolet (EUV) lithography for chip manufacturing."
"But as customer demand for EUV processes soars, it will provide a good opportunity for Samsung‘s foundry business."
Analysts said that Samsung could benefit from Intel’s plan to outsource more chip manufacturing operations.
Earlier this week, Intel, the world’s largest semiconductor company by sales, said that it is facing delays in delivering 7-nanometer (nm) chip technology and may choose to outsource to chip foundries.
Hana Financial Investment analyst Kim Kyung-min said: "The only companies that can produce chips using 7nm technology are Samsung and TSMC."
"Whether Intel outsources its CPU or other chipsets to any particular foundry company, there is no winner or loser. This will have a trickle-down effect on the entire foundry industry and can benefit both TSMC and Samsung."
Samsung said in the second half of the year that its foundry division plans to mass-produce mobile and high-performance computing (HPC) products based on advanced processing technologies, while diversifying applications beyond mobile products.
Samsung has been working hard in recent years to improve its foundry capabilities to catch up with industry giant TSMC.
According to data from the market research firm TrendForce, Samsung’s share of the foundry market in the second quarter is estimated to be 18.8%, while TSMC’s is 51.5%.
In a conference call, Samsung confirmed that it has started mass production of 5nm products and developed 4nm process technology as planned. In May, Samsung announced that it would add a new casting production line in Pyeongtaek, south of Seoul, with a focus on EUV-based 5nm and below process technology. The company already has a V1 production line dedicated to EUV in Hwaseong, south of Seoul.
Samsung said that the use of EUV lithography technology is becoming more and more important because it can shrink the complex patterns on the wafer and provide the best choice for advanced applications such as 5G and artificial intelligence.
