The statistics from "IC Insights" sound suspect given that Samsung themselves sell more than twice as many phones as Apple (world wide) let alone all their other electronics divisions.

If Apple moves away from Samsung foundry then finding a similar kind of customer which can fill-in the vacuum created by Apple will be difficult. More customer would mean more design options and process complexity.

Samsung is going to the top leaving many companies down below with respect to business. Apple themselves are giving huge business to Samsung foundary services.

It seems very strange that despite the patent trials between Apple and Samsung due to Apple's huge order Samsung is heading towards the top in IC making industries. Samsung itself has a huge demand of Semiconductor ICs if they will start using their own foundry produced ICs there are chances that they stand forward compared to the present state.
