In numerous discussions and interviews, Intel has discussed plans for the company to grow and gain a leadership position in chip manufacturing with rivals such as Samsung and TSMC, the world’s two largest semiconductor factories. Recently Intel said it was open to making chips in its own fabs for rivals AMD and NVIDIA.
TSMC is the leading semiconductor foundry, with Samsung Electronics in second place, an area where Intel plans to achieve market share in the next decade or even earlier. TSMC has nearly 54% of the market, while Samsung has a little over 16%. Smaller factories such as UMC and GlobalFoundries now lag Intel with 6.9% and 5.9% market share, respectively.
While Intel waits to complete its acquisition of Tower Semiconductor next year, the company has amassed $576 million in revenue, which it will then invest $1.5 billion annually into the company’s IFS business group. To achieve this, however, Intel must develop an aggressive business strategy to accomplish its mission. This will create next-generation process technology and new cutting-edge capabilities for its IFS customers, remain competitive with TSMC and Samsung, and continue to fulfil customer orders.
Intel is bullish on high-volume wafer production for the current 18A technology, which will continue to mature and thrive through 2025. The company is also focusing on High-NA EUV tools for its 18A technology. For semiconductors, the company continues to build more manufacturing plants for its 20A, including two in Columbus, Ohio.
