A $17 Billion Chip Plant is Being Built in Texas to Help the Automotive Industry

Samsung just officially announced they’re building a $17 billion advanced chip factory about 30 miles from Austin, Texas. 

Kinam Kim, the vice chairman and CEO of Samsung Electronics Device Solutions Division says in a statement that “With greater manufacturing capacity, we will be able to better serve the needs of our customers and contribute to the stability of the global semiconductor supply chain.” He continued, “In addition to our partners in Texas, we are grateful to the Biden Administration for creating an environment that supports companies like Samsung as we work to expand leading-edge semiconductor manufacturing in the U.S. We also thank the administration and Congress for their bipartisan support to swiftly enact federal incentives for domestic chip production and innovation.”

Samsung plans to begin construction in 2022 and hopes to be manufacturing semiconductor chips by 2024. The decision to expand and build a major chip factory comes from the massive global chip shortage that has significantly affected the automotive industry. 

In an attempt to strengthen chip production and reduce the potential for supply chain disruption the Biden administration recently approved $52 billion in subsidies for new chipmaking plants.
