The reasons that SK wants a home grown supercomputer

Are the exact same reasons why a worldwide market for supercomputers is not likely to exist even if they are successful. When the DoE lets a new contract for a supercomputer, they'll specify it has to come from a US company. China will certainly not buy from SK, nor will Japan. The EU is going to want to keep things within their borders as well.

So who will be the market for these home grown SK supers, should they succeed?
