Samsung  exceeded all the revenue predictions for the  third fiscal quarter of 2013, as it  announced 59.08 trillion won (approximately $55.59 billion) in revenue, along with operating profit of 10.16 trillion won (roughly $9.56 billion). 

That's actually more than Samsung's guidance, with both figures representing new highs for the company. The operating profit came in at 7 percent higher than in the previous quarter, and was a whopping 26 percent up from the same period last year. 

Meanwhile " Samsung's  Flagship Product Galaxy S4 had sold 40 million units in its first 6 months on the market, and in today's announcements the company reveals it saw an increase in smartphone shipments of around 10 percent.. Interestingly  Samsung’s growth has been centered in cheaper phones and semiconductors rather than the more expensive line of smartphones.

Semiconductor Capital Spending Grows by 143%: Garter

The worldwide semiconductor equipment market grew 143 per cent in 2010 to nearly $41 billion as the market recovered from the industry slowdown of the previous two years, according to final results from Gartner Inc.

All major market segments grew significantly in 2010 with automatic test equipment (ATE) sales up by 149 per cent, wafer fab equipment (WFE) sales up by 145 per cent and sales of packaging assembly equipment (PAE) up by 127 per cent.

The share of the top ten semiconductor capital equipment companies rose nearly 2 points in 2010, accounting for 63.4 per cent of total revenue, up from 61.6 per cent in 2009 (see Table 1).

Applied Materials retained the No. 1 position in the market, but it could not increase its share because it did not directly capitalise on the strong lithography spending in 2010. 
  • ASML was the fastest-growing company among the top ten semiconductor capital equipment vendors in 2010. The company moved from No. 3 to No. 2 based on the strength of immersion lithography for double patterning, growing to 13 per cent market share.
  • Tokyo Electron dropped to the No. 3 position, despite gaining some additional market share. Tokyo Electron's dominance in track and the associated growth was unable to offset relatively slower spending by some of its key customers.
