All the players know that the novice will be killed by the master even if he doesn't land in the box after entering the video games. He may not know how to die even if he is forced to hang. This is also true in the semiconductor industry, which is regarded as the Pearl of high-tech crown. Domestic CPU, memory and flash memory industries are still new, while Samsung, TSMC, micron and other companies have accumulated for more than ten years.

How powerful are they? Wafer capacity alone is enough to monopolize.

According to IC insights, Samsung's production capacity reached 2.935 million wafers last year (equivalent to 8-inch production capacity), and one company accounted for 15% of the global wafer production capacity.

Samsung's wafer production capacity is mainly memory and flash memory, accounting for about 45% and 33% of the world's production capacity, respectively. A monopoly is not blowing, which accounts for two-thirds of their production capacity.

Of course, Samsung also has its own developed CPU processor, including 5g processor, which can be researched and produced by itself. Its strength in this field is also the world's leading.

The fourth is SK Hynix, with a monthly production capacity of about 1.743 million wafers, accounting for 8.9% of the world's total, and the fifth is Jiaxia, with a monthly production capacity of about 1.406 million wafers, accounting for 7.2% of the total.

Each of these five companies has a monthly production capacity of more than 1 million wafers, accounting for 53% of global production capacity.

In addition to TSMC, the top 5 manufacturers are all memory chip companies. After all, memory chip is the largest semiconductor chip in the world. In 2019, the global semiconductor revenue is US $41.21 billion, and memory chip can account for more than 1 / 3 of the share.

The production capacity of Chinese manufacturers is not mentioned in the original text. At present, SMIC is the largest and most advanced wafer factory in China, which is also a OEM service,In the latest financial report, their monthly production capacity is 443000 wafers, which is not low in the world, but there is still a big gap compared with top 5, and the most advanced technology is still two or three generations behind, and 14nm is just the output contribution.
