Samsung has GROWTH in spite of a large % of their business is DRAM and flash. We all know that memory is cyclical. If you can do this well at the bottom of the cycle, it means you will MAKE BANK at the top of the cycle. Samsung is destroying rival electronics companies (Sony, Panasonic, etc) and cell phone makers (Motorola, Nokia, etc), so a big part of their semi success is due to the success of their internal customers. Perhaps this sets a ceiling on how well they can perform as a semi company?

Intel is still the biggest in sales which is still significant in both economy and technology. It is true that Samsung and TSMC are next to Intel but technologically they can't be compared. I still believe US has to keep on investing more on technology in order to keep the leadership role in the world economy.

But if we see sales volumes, next to Intel, Samsung and TSMC comes in.So the competition is international. At any point of time USA,Japan,Taiwan,South Korea,Europe will be growing and contributing.

Yes it's good to see the US growing. I am sure it is painful to Europe and Japan who are shrinking.

Go USA! We're well represented on the second chart.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
