Dec. 13, 2022 /SemiMedia/ -- Samsung Electronics recently stated that by 2026, the global foundry market for the 3nm process node will reach US$24.2 billion, an increase of more than 20 times from US$1.2 billion in 2022.

Samsung Electronics is currently the only company that has announced the successful mass production of 3nm chips. With the continuous development of process technology, it is expected that the 3nm process will become a key competitive node for foundries such as Samsung, TSMC and Intel.

As of the end of this year, the 5nm and 7nm processes accounted for the largest share in the foundry market, with a market size of US$36.9 billion, and these shares will gradually be replaced by 3nm in the future.
