Samsung to open world’s biggest mobile phone factory

Samsung makes world's largest mobile factory in Noida

The new 35-acre Samsung Electronics facility at Sector 81 in Noida, Uttar Pradesh, will see Prime Minister Narendra Modi and South Korean President Moon Jae-in landing together at a quickly-prepared helipad adjacent to the factory to officially inaugurate it on Monday.

Samsung now manufactures over 60 million smartphones annually in India and with the new plant, it is expected to manufacture almost 120 million mobile phones.

The Samsung unit was set up in Noida back in 1995 and it was used to initially produce television sets.

Said to be built at a cost of ₹ 4,500 crore, the Samsung's Noida plant can produce 12 crore mobile phones every year, ranging from low-end smartphones to its flagship Samsung Galaxy S9, and will create 15,000 local jobs. The new facility is spread across an area of over 140,000 square meters. Thereafter, they will also visit a Samsung plant in Noida, Uttar Pradesh.

Markets Right Now: Stocks open higher on Wall Street
USA equities marched higher after monthly jobs data showing a 213,000 gain in non-farm payrolls in June and stable wage growth. The gains came despite an escalation in trade tensions as the USA imposed tariffs on Chinese goods and China responded in kind.

The facility is expected to double Samsung's production capacity of consumer electronics like refrigerators and flat panel TVs, further consolidating the company's leadership in the segment. Keep in mind that the 120 million means feature phones as well.

India's smartphone market grew 14 per cent with total shipments of 124 million units past year, the fastest pace of growth among the world's top 20 markets, according to technology research firm IDC.

President and CEO of Samsung India, HC Hong, said that a bigger manufacturing plant would help the company cater to the growing demand for Samsung products across the country.

Samsung has two manufacturing plants in India.

Samsung's reputation was dealt a blow by the bribery conviction of Lee Jae-yong, who was a key figure in the scandal that ousted former South Korean leader Park Geun-hye following massive nationwide protests, and was sentenced to five years in jail last year. Numerous software products designed for Samsung's smartphones in India are developed by these R&D teams.

The plant spans 35 acres (141 thousand sq.m.) and aims to increase overall production of devices in India by 50%.
