  11. 11. Major Challenges<br /> China is a major upcoming threat<br /> Major chip producers are partnering with Chinese company i.e. Infenion, Elpida signed agreement with SMIC.<br /> Chinese are desperate in gaining market share at the cost of losses.<br /> Chinese Govt is ready to provide cheap finance to set up JV.<br />
  12. 12. Conclusion<br /> Samsung is ahead in Learning curve- emphasis more in R&D works.<br /> Play on “legacy” and “specialty” product.<br /> May collaborate with Chinese partners to expand joint investments.<br /> Probably a better option…..<br /> Produce low end product in china, high end product in Korea.<br />Ensure better control over Intellectual Property<br />
