Companies under the SK banner operate in a wide range of business areas, which include telecommunications, refinery, semiconductors, and much more. First established in 1953 as a clothing company, the SK Group has managed to grow its business into a leading multinational corporation.
SK’s subsidiaries are big players
Subsidiaries of the SK Group are among the leading companies in their respective industries. In the South Korean telecommunications industry, SK Telecom is the leading mobile operator, beating other large companies such as LG and KT to the top spot. Another example would be how companies such as SK Innovation and SK Incheon Petrochem are among the leaders of the domestic refinery industry. Moreover, a popular e-commerce company in South Korea, 11Street, is a part of the SK Group. The SK brand is also a sponsor for football and basketball teams in the professional sports scene in South Korea.
A high-tech future for SK
What is noteworthy about SK is the attention it turns toward the future. Due to their widespread use in modern electrical products, semiconductors are expected to continue to be in high demand around the world for the foreseeable future. SK Group is already well-placed in the industry, with SK Hynix among the leading semiconductor producers worldwide. For the energy sector, SK E&S recently had a new fuel cell power plant commence operations to produce more sustainable energy. Additionally, SK Telecom leads the way in 5G subscriptions in South Korea, which is another demonstration of its strong position in the telecommunications industry.
