Omdia, a market research firm, surpasses Intel in terms of global revenue share
It is predicted that Samsung Electronics will overtake Intel to occupy the top spot in the global semiconductor market in the third quarter of 2021, excluding foundry (semiconductor consignment production) sales.
On the 20th, market research firm Omdia predicted that Samsung Electronics’ semiconductor sales share in the third quarter of this year would record 14.11%, ranking first in the world. This is more than 2 percentage points (p) higher than the expected market share of 2nd place Intel, which is 12.09%.
Omdia does not include foundry performance in the sales survey of semiconductor companies.
According to Omdia, Samsung Electronics’ semiconductor sales share in the second quarter of this year was 13.12%, slightly lagging behind Indel’s 13.53%, ranking second.
However, in the third quarter of this year, it is expected that it will surpass Intel’s performance due to higher memory prices such as DRAM and increased sales volume.
Third place was SK Hynix, whose market share increased to 6.80% in the third quarter of this year from 6.37% in the second quarter.
It was followed by Micron Technology (5.39%), Qualcomm (4.41%), Broadcom (3.40%) and MediaTek (3.09%).
In the IC Insights survey that includes the foundry sector performance, Samsung Electronics has already surpassed Intel in the second quarter of this year.
Samsung Electronics’ sales were 20.297 billion dollars (about 24 trillion won), and Intel’s sales were estimated to be 19.34 billion dollars (about 22.8 trillion won).
It was the first time in 11 quarters since the third quarter of 2018, when Samsung was the ‘semiconductor supercycle’, that Samsung surpassed Intel and ranked first in the world in terms of quarterly sales.
