The famous company Counterpoint, which is active in the field of analysis of various segments of the mobile market, published a report on the state of the mobile chip market in the third quarter of 2021 a few hours ago. . According to the report, the mobile chip market in this period has grown by 6% compared to the same period last year, and on the other hand, the number of 5G chips has almost doubled compared to the previous year.
In the period between From July to September 2021, MediaTek managed to capture 40% of this market. This success has been achieved thanks to the increasing demand for 4G and 5G chips. According to MediaTek's financial report, the company's revenue has also increased significantly. With the launch of several flagship handsets in the first quarter of 2022 and the increase in chip prices in the fourth quarter of 2021, it seems that MediaTek's revenue growth trend will continue.
In the second place in this market, as usual, Qualcomm's name is seen. Surprisingly, after Apple, there is the name Unisoc, which managed to gain 10% of this market and is higher than Samsung. HiSilicon, a subsidiary of Huawei, which manufactures the company's handset chips, has largely failed due to US sanctions, with a market share of 2 percent.
During this period, due to the problems related to the production of 5G chips, the demand for 4G chips has increased and MediaTek has been able to expand in this field. Qualcomm, on the other hand, is the leader in the 5G chip market, accounting for 62% of the 5G mobile chip market. Apple is also ranked third in the market, but according to reports, the company is having trouble supplying iPhone parts, and the report for the fourth quarter of 2021 will determine the impact of these problems.
Corporate market share in the 5G chip market
UNISOC Ranked third is an unknown company to many users. But the Chinese company supplies a large portion of the low-end handset chips. For example, companies such as Riley, Motorola, ZTE and even Samsung are working with this company to supply chips for some of their low-end phones. The past has had an upward trend. Until a few years ago, this company was mainly known as a manufacturer of cheap and not very powerful chips. But over the past few years, they have spent a lot of money improving their chips, and as a result, the quality of the company's chipsets has improved significantly. For example, it recently introduced the 4-nanometer Dimensity 9000 chipset, which, according to benchmarks, is a strong competitor to the Snapdragon 8 1st generation.
