Samsung said it expects its profits for the first three months of 2024 to increase more than tenfold compared with the same period in 2023.

The company estimated that its operating profit rose to $4.9bn in the January–March quarter, 931% higher than the same period a year prior. 

Samsung’s expected profit increase comes as demand for AI-related products continues to grow. 

GlobalData predicts that the AI arms race in 2023, which saw companies rush to create their own large language models, will transition to the ‘AI chip race’ in 2024.

This will be seen in not only Big Tech companies but also amongst start-ups that will look to create their own proprietary chips, according to the report.

The value of semiconductor deals in the US and China have declined as a result of tightening US restrictions, Covid-19 and an uncertain economic market.
