Samsung Raises Internal Reliance, Lowers External Orders

According to rumours, Samsung will lower its panel order value to other companies even further in 2015. The company has been reducing orders for several years, increasingly relying on internally-made components. Rumours say that orders fell from KRW2.6 trillion ($2.33 billion) in 2013 to KRW2.2 trillion ($1.97 billion) in 2014, and will decrease to sub-KRW2 trillion ($1.8 billion) this year.
