  • The secret of success is the ability to produce with low cost and sell with high price. In the semiconductor industry, the key success factors are low production cost and reliability. Reliability is an important factor that increases the price because the OEM PC producers pay premium for quality and reliability of the products. – they get serious damaged in sales when their PC is defectedBenchmarking In order to know how to defend

  • Investment from Foreign and Chinese investors Low labour cost Government support and subsidy in semiconductor industry Lack of Intellectual Property enforcement
  • What I want to point out is SMIC. SMIC's production cost is the second best and the price is the lowest. SMIC is low cost production and low price which means the aggressiveness and potential. Besides, it’s fully advantages from China2nd Lowest production costThe lowest priceResourceGuan xiGovernment subsidy

  • Currently, the competitors of Samsung are far behind SamsungHowever, there is a potentially huge threat from Chinae.g) Competitors may step into alliance with Chinese manufacturersEspecially, SMIC, major Chinese competitor, has a lot of resource and low production costis posing aggressive strategy to attack market share. Its market share is predicted to increase from 4% to 7% in 2005
  • Strength – resource, Government Support, low production cost Weakness – Outdated technology, Current strategy – AggressiveLikely strategic move – purchase technology license

    1. 1. Case Study Eun Chong
    2. 2. Semiconductor manufacturers selling their memory chips to OEM PC producers (B2B) worldwide Competitor Analysis
    3. 3. The Major Competitors
    4. 4. HYNIX • Cost advantage of Korea • Over-investment ▶ Fail • Recently JV with Chinese producer Infineon • German, long history • SA to reduce investment risk • Taiwan-based DRAM manufacturer • JV with Nanya • Heavy investment planned in Asia MICRON • US • Acquisition of Texas instrument • 26years, financial distress • Focus on DRAM • Get invested from Intel
    5. 5. SMIC  Estabilished in 2000 and HQ in Shanghai  Get licensed from others (Infineon)  Purchase of production facility 1 b  High revenue growth (revenue & stock exchange)  Produce older generation (outdated tech)  Grow market share at expense of profitability  By Son of former Chinese leader Jiang Zemin  4% to 7% world market share increase predicted  Fast increase
