South Korea

South Korea has been relatively free of problems from natural disasters, and manufacturing there is smooth despite occasional protests.

However, South Korea is home to the biggest "what-if" in the global IT supply chain: the potential of a second Korean War.

According to IHS, South Korea is home to the headquarters of producers of:

-- 66 percent of the world's DRAM

-- 49 percent of the world's data flash memory

-- 49 percent of the world's large LCD panels

-- 20 percent of the world's display drivers

-- 15 percent of the world's small and medium LCD panels
