Samsung is building a new $17 billion advanced chip plant in Texas

Samsung officially announced a new advanced chip-making plant in Texas, thats estimated to cost around $17 billion and could create 1,800 jobs, as reported previously by The Wall Street Journal. The new plant will be located in the city of Taylor, roughly 30 miles away from Austin, where Samsung has an existing facility. The new site is roughly 1,200 acres in size, making it larger than Samsungs Austin plant, the WSJ notes. Kinam Kim, the vice chairman and CEO of Samsung Electronics Device Solutions Division says in a statement that With greater manufacturing capacity, we will be able to better serve the needs of our customers and contribute to the stability of the global semiconductor supply chain. He continued, In addition to our partners in Texas, we are grateful to the Biden Administration for creating an environment that supports companies like Samsung as we work to expand leading-edge semiconductor manufacturing in the U.S. We also thank the administration and Congress for their bipartisan support to swiftly enact federal incentives for domestic chip production and innovation. Samsung plans to break ground on the location next year, and start producing chips in 2024. Eventually, Samsung is expected to begin using the new plant to produce processors, for its own uses and for use in other companies products. The city of Taylor also offered Samsung incentives to locate its plant there, which reportedly amount to property tax breaks of over 90 percent for its first ten years, the WSJ notes. Samsung is a giant in the memory chip manufacturing game, but itll likely use the Taylor plant to manufacture advanced chips for other companies based on their designs. Previous reports have indicated this new plant could produce chips as advanced as 3nm. Samsung has previously produced chips for companies like Qualcomm and Nvidia. The expansion comes as the global semiconductor shortage continues to cause major problems for everyone from console makers to car manufacturers. Its a situation thats unlikely to abate until at least 2023, according to recent comments from Intel CEO Pat Gelsinger. In response, the Biden administration is attempting to bolster US chip production, reducing the potential for supply chain disruption and reversing the countrys declining share of manufacturing in recent decades. The Senate recently approved $52 billion in subsidies for new chipmaking plants, though the CHIPS Act is yet to pass in the House of Representatives, according to Bloomberg. The chip-making industry has production capacity increases planned, but many of the new plants wont be online anytime soon. TSMC and Sonys new $7 billion chip factory in Japan wont see production start until the end of 2024, the same year as TSMCs new $12 billion Arizona plant. TSMC has said it plans to invest over $100 billion in new chip factories over the next three years, while Intel plans to spend a similar amount over the next decade on investments in the US and Europe.
