According to IC insights, Samsung's production capacity reached 2.935 million wafers last year (equivalent to 8-inch production capacity), and one company accounted for 15% of the global wafer production capacity.
Samsung's wafer production capacity is mainly memory and flash memory, accounting for about 45% and 33% of the world's production capacity, respectively. A monopoly is not blowing, which accounts for two-thirds of their production capacity.
Of course, Samsung also has its own developed CPU processor, including 5g processor, which can be researched and produced by itself. Its strength in this field is also the world's leading.
TSMC's monthly production capacity last year was about 2.55 million equivalent wafers, with a global share of about 12.8%. They don't produce memory chips, mainly OEM logic chips, including apple, Huawei, Qualcomm's mobile processors, as well as AMD's 7Nm x86 processors.
In the third place is Meguiar, a memory and flash based memory chip company. Last year, it produced 1.841 million wafers, with a global share of about 9.4%.
The fourth is SK Hynix, with a monthly production capacity of about 1.743 million wafers, accounting for 8.9% of the world's total, and the fifth is Jiaxia, with a monthly production capacity of about 1.406 million wafers, accounting for 7.2% of the total.
Each of these five companies has a monthly production capacity of more than 1 million wafers, accounting for 53% of global production capacity.
In addition to TSMC, the top 5 manufacturers are all memory chip companies. After all, memory chip is the largest semiconductor chip in the world. In 2019, the global semiconductor revenue is US $41.21 billion, and memory chip can account for more than 1 / 3 of the share.
Among the top ten are Intel (817000 wafers per month), liandian (753000 wafers per month), lattice core global foundries, Ti Texas Instruments and St Italy semiconductor.
The production capacity of Chinese manufacturers is not mentioned in the original text. At present, SMIC is the largest and most advanced wafer factory in China, which is also a OEM service,In the latest financial report, their monthly production capacity is 443000 wafers, which is not low in the world, but there is still a big gap compared with top 5, and the most advanced technology is still two or three generations behind, and 14nm is just the output contribution.
