As one of the largest contract tastes of semiconductors and among leading chip developers for various applications, Samsung Electronics wants to become the world leader in these industries. To do so, the company plans to invest a large $ 115 billion ($ 115 billion) in its Samsung LSI and Samsung Foundry businesses.
Samsung will invest $ 115 billion from now until 2030, according to the approved plan for the next 12 years. KRW 73 billion will be invested in R&D in South Korea (which probably means chip R&D and process technology R&D), while KRW 60 trillion ($ 52.1 billion) will be invested in manufacturing facilities and infrastructure used to create logic chips for different customers . Samsung will, on average, invest around NOK 1
|Samsung's LSI & Foundry Investment Plan|
|Yearly Investments||Investments through 2030|
|R&D||~ $ 5.28 billion||~ $ 63.4 billion|
|Production infrastructure||~ $ 4.34 billion||~ $ 52.1 billion|
|Total||~ $ 9.51 billion||~ $ 115 billion ||Samsung reports its investment plans in KRW, we convert numbers to USD.|
Last year, Samsung spent a total of $ 15.2 billion on R&D as a whole, so the commitment to spend $ 5.28 billion a year on semiconductor-related R&D alone seems very significant. Meanwhile, it seems moderate to spend an average of $ 4.3 billion on annual production capacity expansion. For example, Samsung's production line in Hwaseong, which was built for EUV equipment from the start, and to be executed in 2019, will cost the company $ 4.615 billion.
|R & D & CapEx of Intel, TSMC, and Samsung (LSI + Foundry)|
|Intel||$ 28.7 billion ?||?|
|TSMC (CapEx + R & D]||$ 10.5 billion||$ 10 ~ $ 11 billion||~ $ 10 – $ 12 billion|
|Samsung||?||$ 9.51 billion||$ 9.51 billion|
|Note:|| TSMC spends only Lions' share of its CapEx + R & D money on process technology development and expansion / upgrade of fabs.
Intel uses R & D + CapEx on CPUs / SOCs / memory development, on new process technologies, and on expansion / upgrade of fabs 19659038] Samsung (LSI + Foundry) uses R&D + CapEx money on the development of SoCs, new process technology, and expansion / upgrading of fabs.
 Samsung expects the investment plan LSI and Foundry to create 15,000 additional jobs in R&D and chip production, and in order to put the number into context, Samsung had around 320,000 employees worldwide at the end of 2017, so it is clear that the company will increase its workforce. by 5% by the end of 2030 ih executive management alone.
