Samsung Electronics had a precipitous drop from number 8 last year to almost falling out of the Top 25 this year, but just to remain on the list at all is something of an accomplishment. After all, how many other companies could boast of having a Top 25 Supply Chain despite the U.S. Department of Transportation banning one of its products from air transportation? Such was the fate of the Galaxy Note7 smartphone, which had a nasty propensity to spontaneously combust. Gartner’s analysts, though, believe that Samsung will recover and point to the recently introduced Galaxy S8 smartphones, that feature such tech wizardry as face recognition, iris scanning and fingerprint scanning capabilities.
