According to information from SCMP (South China Morning Post) and The Korea Times, Samsung will start manufacturing chips using 2-nanometer lithography in South Korea in 2025. The South Korean company has planned a total investment of ₩500 trillion (~R$1.8 trillion).

The conglomerate’s semiconductor manufacturing project would be located near Seoul, South Korea. According to the South Korean government, it will include thirteen factories and three research centers, which will be spread across several cities in Gyeonggi province.

TSMC executive Mark Liu said the company plans to build factories to produce 2-nanometer lithography chips in Hsinchu and Kaohsiung in Taiwan, in addition to seeking government approval for another in Taichung.

Samsung Foundry and TSMC are looking to expand their chip factories to more countries, but have encountered problems such as shortages of skilled labor and subsidies from local governments.

Since 2021, Samsung Foundry has been building a chip factory in Texas valued at US$ 17 billion (~R$ 85 billion). The objective is for it to manufacture semiconductors in 4 nanometers, but plans have been postponed.
