Korean technology major Electronics on Thursday reported its highest quarterly profit in three years as the company continues to witness robust global demand for its computer memory chips.

The South Korean technology giant in a statement said that its revenue of 74 trillion won ($63 billion) for the July-September period was a new quarterly record.

The operating profit of the company jumped 26% from the previous quarter to 15.8 trillion won ($13.48 billion), its highest since the same period of 2018, a growth the company attributed to “favourable market conditions” that led to rising prices and shipments.

Samsung also saw an increase in sales for its smartphones and premium TVs, although rising costs tied to raw materials and logistics dented profitability.

Samsung’s dual strength in parts and finished products has allowed it to flourish during the pandemic, which increased the demand for its memory chips used in computing devices and servers as millions of people were forced to work at home.

However, the company said it was dealing with “longer-than-expected” component shortages that may affect the demand for semiconductors during the current quarter.

It also said it expects demands for TVs to slow in the coming months as people spend less time at home amid eased social distancing restrictions.
