India is the world's fastest-growing smartphone market, and now it has a factory to match that demand.
Built on 32 acres of land next to Samsung's (SSNLF) original factory in India, the plant will allow the South Korean firm to almost double the number of smartphones it makes in India every year from 68 million to 120 million by 2020.
The plant will make up to 120 million phones a year - up from 67 million - and potentially include other electronic appliances like refrigerators and flat panel televisions down the line.
By 2012, Samsung became the market leader in mobile phones in the country and the Noida facility rolled out the first-ever "Galaxy S3" device.
"We are aligned with government policies and will continue to seek their support to achieve our dream of making India a global export hub for mobile phones", H C Hong, Chief Executive Officer, Samsung India, said. He said it is a matter of pride that India is home to the world's largest Samsung unit. "After, seeing this, the feeling that I get is that India and Korea may be having different cultures, but the two countries share commonalities in values such as peace, harmony and unity in diversity", Moon said after visiting the iconic Akshardham temple.
Samsung, which has been assembling phones in India since 2007, also plans to export India-made handsets.
"India is witnessing dynamic development", Moon said, adding that his country would contribute actively to the "Make in India" policy aimed at boosting Indian manufacturing.
Last June, Samsung announced an investment of ₹4,915 crore to add new capacity at the Noida plant. He claimed that the factory will provide 35,000 jobs directly and indirectly, and the state government will ensure that the unit got the proper infrastructure it needed. India is using 40 crore smartphones, 32 crore people are using broadband technology.
President Moon is set to hold a bilateral summit with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday, followed by a meeting with Indian President Ram Nath Kovind and a state dinner to be hosted by his Indian counterpart.
Samsung has two manufacturing plants - in Noida and in Sriperumbudur, Tamil Nadu - five R&D centres, and one design centre in Noida, employing over 70,000 people and expanding its network to over 1.5 lakh retail outlets.
