Samsung R&D spending – additional information

Samsung, a global leader in semiconductors, telecommunications and digital media technologies, spent nearly 14 billion U.S. dollars on research and development in 2014. This amount is considerably higher than the 2009 figure, when Samsung spent around seven billion U.S. dollars on research and development. Their expenditure has almost doubled.

Samsung has the third largest R&D expenditure in the world. Samsung is also the top-ranked consumer electronics company. Intel and Volkswagen are listed third and fourth respectively in the ranking. Samsung’s investment manifests, for example, in the more than five thousand U.S. patents as of 2016. Only IBM has more patents, while spending 5.8 billion U.S. dollars on research and development.

Software and computer services companies, and technology hardware and equipment companies tend to invest heavily on research and development. In the last few years, companies from these two industrial sectors spent, on average, about eight to 10 percent of their total revenue on R&D. In the electronics and electrical appliances industry – another market in which Samsung has a strong presence – companies invest about four to five percent of their revenues in R&D. In 2017, Samsung invested more than seven percent of its total global revenue on research and development.
