Top12 foundry ranking for 2012

Samsung jumps to #3 in 2012 foundry ranking, has sights set on #2 spot in 2013.
In total, the top12 foundries represented 90% of total foundry sales (IDM and pure-play) in 2012. This share is nine points higher than the 81% figure the top 12 represented in 2009 (before Samsung dramatically ramped up IC foundry production for Apple). With the barriers to entry (e.g., fab costs, access to leading edge technology, etc.) into the foundry business being so high and rising, IC Insights expects this “top 12” marketshare figure to continue to rise in the future.
