  • FRANKFURT — Samsung Electronics believes it can quadruple its sales to the auto industry by the middle of the next decade with soaring content per unit. And for the giant South Korean producer of telephones, TVs and other electronic goods, that growth in car parts would be enormous. Samsung's current share of the global automotive component market: $5 billion. Its new expectation: $20 billion. "It's not much for Samsung, because we make $200 billion in revenue," Samsung Electronics President Young Sohn told Automotive News here last month.

"But things are really changing," said Sohn, who is also the ..
