Continued confidence and growth in the far east semiconductor sector has been emphasised this month with AXT announcing further expansion of its compound semiconductor substrate manufacturing facilities in China. On a larger scale, it is reported that Samsung is increasing its 2012 investments to $41 Billion. The money will be used for everything from building factories to R&D, as well as mergers & acquisitions and hiring new staff. Samsung expects to take on around 26,000 new staff in 2012, taking its global total to about 376,000. The company has not specified the R&D development areas but analysts widely expect it to raise investment in mobile chips for phones, tablets and digital cameras and to accelerate the production of next-generation OLED (organic light emitting diode) flat-screen displays.
