Reference News Network reported on August 6th, Korean media said, industry sources said, the Korean semiconductor industry is facing a shortage of human resources, the main reason is the outflow of engineers.
In the long run, the labor shortage is likely to seriously undermine the global competitiveness of the Korean semiconductor manufacturing and equipment manufacturers, the Korea Times reported on August 1st.
Vice president of Samsung Electronics also asked the government to provide more support for the semiconductor industry in order to solve its manpower problems.
Reported that Samsung Electronics in March 24th at the general meeting of shareholders, the right Wuxian promised to prevent loss of talent to China.
According to the financial supervision and regulation department data, Samsung Electronics has approximately 45 thousand employees in its semiconductor business, while South Korea's second largest chip maker SK Hynix first quarter of this year, with about 23 thousand employees. The average working time of Samsung is about 10.2 years, and the working time in Hynix SK is about 10.9 years.
Reported that, however, due to China plans to inject huge amounts of money into the semiconductor industry, South Korea's measures are insufficient to respond to China's active push in the industry.
Reported that China's Thunis group promised to become one of the world's five largest memory chip manufacturers by 2020. To achieve this goal, earlier this year, it promised to invest $30 billion in building a chip factory in Nanjing. Last March, the company announced a plan to build a memory chip factory in Wuhan for $24 billion. The company is focusing on the NAND Flash memory chip to ensure global competitiveness.
But China needs more time and effort to ensure that workers are able to run semiconductor manufacturing facilities, the report said. That's why many Chinese companies seek to hire experienced, talented Korean workers and promise a high salary.
