According to a recent report by a market research agency called Counterpoint Research, during the second 3 months of this year, MediaTek was quite successful in the sale of mid-range and low-end 4G and 5G chips and took an impressive 39% share of the global smartphone chip market. gave However, the income from the sale of mobile phone chips is not very high. In terms of revenue, Qualcomm is still in the first place and Mediatech is in the third place.
Mediatek dominates the smartphone chip market with a 39% share. This Taiwanese company is the leader in the wholesale price segment of low-end products thanks to the high sales of Helio G series chips and Dimensity 700. The sales of MediaTek chips during the second 3 months of 2022 decreased slightly compared to the previous 3 months period. This phenomenon is caused by the reduction of orders by large Chinese manufacturing companies. Qualcomm’s market share during this period was equal to 29%. Despite the economic conditions in the world and the downward trend of the smartphone market, this company managed to maintain its top position in the high-end chip sector.
Despite selling more chips than Qualcomm, MediaTek achieved lower revenue than its American rival
Among the other major companies producing smartphone chips in the world, Apple, Ziguang Zhanrui, and Samsung took the third to fifth positions with 14, 11, and 6 percent of the market, respectively. Finally, the HiSilicon unit of Huawei stood at the sixth place with a share of 0.4%.
In terms of revenue, Qualcomm is considered to be the top player in the global smartphone chip market with a 44% share in the second 3 months of 2022. Qualcomm’s revenue share experienced a 56% growth in the second 3 months of this year compared to the same period last year. This achievement is due to the growth in sales of the company’s more advanced chips and the increase in the average selling price of Qualcomm’s chipsets.
In addition, the cooperation between Samsung and Qualcomm in the field of producing the chips needed by the Galaxy S22 family has also helped to increase the income of the American manufacturer in the premium chip segment of the market. Mediatek’s revenue share from the global chip market during this period was equal to 22%. The sale of baseband chips to Apple also played a significant role in doubling Qualcomm’s revenue. On the other hand, MediaTek’s income was due to the increase in the average selling price of 5G chips and the release of the Dimensity 9000 series flagship chip to the market.
Among the other major manufacturers of smartphone chips in the world, Apple, MediaTek, Samsung, Ziguang Zhanrui and Huawei took the 2nd to 6th places, respectively, with a revenue share of 23, 22, 8, 3 and 1 percent of the smartphone chip market.
