The market gap between Samsung and TSMC got increased in the Q3

Published

on


The semiconductor market is one of the major equity of Samsung. But from last year, the semiconductor market of Samsung has fallen with a huge acceleration. Consequently, in the Foundry market, the gap between the South Korean manufacturer Samsung and Taiwanese manufacturer TSMC has expanded more than before in the third quarter of this year. For information, this year, Samsung secured only 15.5 percent of the total market shares in Q3. Let’s take a brief look at Samsung’s market graph for the current year.

According to Taiwanese market research firm TrendForce, Samsung’s market shares increased by 18.3 percent in the fourth quarter of 2021. However, it was no good because, by the first quarter of 2022, the company had seen a huge market low with a 16.3 percent decline. Afterward, the market fell by 16.5 percent and 16 percent, respectively, in the second and third quarters of this year. Therefore, its sales also went down by 0.1 percent as compared to the previous quarter, with sales of a total of 5.584 billion USD.

Coming to TSMC, its market rose from 52.1 percent in the fourth quarter of 2021 to 56.1 percent in the third quarter of 2022. Consequently, its shares increased by 2.7 percentage points this time, as compared to the previous quarter. Similarly, in this third quarter, its sales also reached 20.163 billion USD to 18.145 billion USD, with an 11.1 percent increase from the Q2 of 2022. TrendForce has stated regarding these market scenarios, “Most of the foundry companies were affected by a decrease in customer orders, but TSMC enjoyed a big increase in order inflow due to strong demand for new iPhones.” It clearly shows that the decrease in Samsung’s market shares appeared because of the lower consumer demand.

Samsung is integrating its two North American AI research centers. On the other hand, it is also hiring a former Apple executive to lead the newly combined team. This step hints that Samsung is strengthening its AI research and development (R&D) efforts in North America. 

The reports suggest that the brand has made the announcement internally this week, around the same time Apple kicked off a much-anticipated expansion into AI, as revealed by the people who asked not to be identified since the changes have yet to be announced. 

The Korean giant is working on a new operation called the North America AI Center, integrating its teams in Toronto and Mountain View, California. Samsung’s research arm “Ecntralized” the two centers to improve operations and increase efficiency, according to an internal memo viewed by Bloomberg. The brand didn’t disclose the exact reason for what would happen to the two offices. 

This step directly suggests that the world’s two largest technology firms are getting more aggressive in AI. Murat Akback, a former Apple executive, will head up the division. According to the memo from the iPhone maker, Akback was  “responsible for defining and executing the strategy for Siri, Apple’s digital assistant, focusing on personalization, contextualization, and advancements in conversational and multimodal AI.” 

Apple announced a significant AI boost focusing on upgrading Siri and user experience through a system called Apple Intelligence. They hold OpenAI technology for some features but rely heavily on in-house development. On the other hand, the Korean giant integrated its North American AI research centers. He hired an ex-Apple AI expert, potentially to power up its AI development (R&D) in North America. They dedicatedly use Google Gemini technology for their AI mechanism.
