Samsung to open world’s largest mobile phone manufacturing centre in India today

Noida now has the largest mobile factory in the world

Samsung's Noida plant also has a Research and Development Centre, and there's is a design centre as well.

Samsung's "World's Biggest Mobile factory': Prime Minister Narendra Modi and South Korean President Moon Jae-in will be inaugurating a Samsung Electronics facility in Noida today, which will be for manufacturing mobile phones, and possibly the largest in the world".

The South Korean tech giant makes 67 million smartphones in India and with the new plant, it is expected to manufacture almost 120 million.

Samsung's new 35-acre facility in Sector 81, Noida, Uttar Pradesh will be one of the biggest in the world.

"This is a significant departure from Korea's traditional foreign policy", the article noted, adding that, "It is partly a hedging strategy amid the US-China tug-of-war in the region, and partly a forward-looking move to address how Korea and India can together meet the demands of a dynamic future".

Samsung Electronics' heir apparent Lee Jae-yong departed for India on Sunday with two major tasks: recover relations with the Moon Jae-in government and lay groundwork to further expand in the Indian smartphone market.

By 2005, Samsung had become market leader in panel TVs and in 2007, the existing Noida facility started manufacturing mobile phones. "Moon's visit to the Samsung factory could be a great help for Samsung that is struggling in India and China as chased after by Chinese rivals".

The company is now making 67 million smartphones in India and with the new plant being functional, it is expected to manufacture almost 120 million mobile phones. "It makes sense for Samsung to build a bigger manufacturing base here", Jaipal Singh, Senior Market Analyst, IDC, told IANS. The US is saturated and Korea and Brazil are not growing significantly. Keep in mind that the 120 million means feature phones as well.

"They are now looking at building a complete ecosystem". Numerous software products designed for Samsung's smartphones in India are developed by these R&D teams. The launch of the Samsung plant is a part of PM Modi's "Make In India" campaign. Through this plant, Samsung aims to take it to 50 percent over the next three years.
