SEOUL (June 14): Samsung Electronics' semiconductor production in China is experiencing disruptions as South Korean truckers block the export of a key raw material to China, Korea International Trade Association said on Tuesday.

A South Korean company that manufactures isopropyl alcohol (IPA), a raw material for cleaning wafers, is facing complications in shipping the product to a Chinese company that supplies wafers to a Samsung Electronics chip factory in China, KITA said in a press release.

The export of 90 metric tonnes of IPA or a week's shipment has been delayed.
