Intel is booming to expand its presence by acquiring various manufacturers of fab

The world is currently facing an extreme semiconductor crisis and many industries dependent on a stable supply of silicon have been forced to shut down most of their production. Currently, the United States, where most of the semiconductor giants are concentrated, has released its policy to help reshape chip manufacturing.

As such, Intel, which has been the king of silicon for the past three decades, has started buying from chipmakers around the world. Recently, the Wall Street Journal report indicated that Intel is currently in buyout talks with Abu Dhabi-based Mubadala Investment to acquire GlobalFoundries.

At this time, it is not clear whether the deal will receive a green signal. However, any potential deal could value GlobalFoundries at around $ 30 billion. This is yet another piece of news from Intel buying up chip foundries, we’ve already heard of a similar type of deal involving Intel.

A few weeks ago, Bloomberg announced that Intel had offered around $ 2 billion to acquire the factory-less semiconductor SiFive. The company is one of the largest producers of commercial RISC-V silicon and IP processor solutions based on the RISC-V instruction set architecture.

Intel’s IDM 2.0 strategy is in full swing under the banner of its new CEO, Patrick Gelsinger, and seeks to improve its chipmaking footprint. To achieve these results, Intel formed a completely separate business unit called Intel Foundry Services (IFS).

Intel is also looking to expand its presence in the US and EU by offering dedicated capacity and a full IP portfolio, which includes x86 cores as well as IPs from the ARM and RISC-V ecosystems. Sources say the chipmaker is also investing $ 20 billion to build two new factories at its Ocotillo, Arizona plant.

“Intel is expected to lose nearly 50% of its Apple orders in 2021 and ultimately will not get any orders from the customer. By losing Apple’s 10% market share and seeing AMD stay firmly with an additional 10%, the Intel’s share of the laptop market is expected to drop below 80% in 2023, the sources noted.
