Samsung Electronics was the second largestR&Dinvestor outside the US, withmore than $19bn spent during 2020, according to fDi calculations based oncompany figures. The research armof the electron-


ics hardware giant collaborates with 14 overseasR&Dcentres in 12 coun- triesworldwide and seven global AI centres to help enhance itsR&D capacity, in areas including AI, data intelligence, robotics and security. “It is very important to have your

more than $13.5bn on R&D in 2020 as it tries to catch-up with its east Asian counterparts, followed by Texas Instruments ($9.27bn), Qualcomm($6.22bn) and Broadcom ($4.89bn). NVIDIA increased its annual spending on R&D more than any other semiconductor company in the top 100, raising expenses from $2.8bn to $3.9bn, according to com- pany figures. Anongoing chip supply crunch,
