Now one of the largest conglomerates in the world in terms of market value, Samsung is the largest “chaebol” (business conglomerate) in South Korea and accounts for a significant portion of the country’s GDP. The company’s annual revenue amounted to around 218.17 billion U.S. dollars worldwide in 2018; the mobile communications and semiconductor segments are its largest revenue generators, bringing in billions of U.S. dollars every quarter.
