Qualcomm misplaced 3% of its international smartphone chip market share in Q2 of 2020, down 26%, in accordance with the most recent market share information.
A report by Counterpoint Analysis discovered that the primary purpose for the decline of smartphone chips was the sharp decline in smartphone gross sales because of the international epidemic. The report defined that Qualcomm stays the primary smartphone chip provider with a market share of 29%, however this share is down from 32% in comparison with Q2 2019. Apple, Heisilicon and Media Tech have gained market share all yr – Apple moved from 11% to 13%, Heisilicon gained 12% to 16%, and Media Tech gained 2% to 26%.
Going ahead, Huawei’s struggles with U.S. authorities and the commerce ban will profit different smartphone chip main distributors within the business. As a result of Huawei is much less in a position to manufacture and promote smartphones, shoppers purchase rival units powered by chips from another vendor. It’s believed that Samsung is inserting its excessive finish Exynos chipsets to compete towards Qualcomm, which is attention-grabbing, thus far solely a really small variety of producers outdoors of Samsung have used Exynos SOCs.
Counterpoint believes it’s seeing early indicators of restoration in smartphone shipments, resulting in a restoration in smartphone SoC gross sales. The smartphone chip market goes to vary within the coming months as a result of Huawei / Heisilicon is mainly squeezed out, giving different distributors an opportunity to develop. New 5G community applied sciences and new give attention to cellular gaming – We now have seen progress from each MediaTek and Qualcomm – the market is predicted to develop, gaming-based telephones are anticipated to develop over 1000% (from a really low base!) Within the coming yr.
Information from Counterpoint Analysis confirmed that 5G telephone gross sales progress was 126% spectacular within the second quarter, but it surely should be remembered that it got here from a really low base. Nonetheless, as extra carriers deploy 5G networks, I count on this pattern to proceed.
