Samsung, Apple still world's biggest chip buyers


Samsung, Apple still world's biggest chip buyers

The two smartphone makers accounted for 18.2 percent of global market, spending US$61.7 billion on semiconductors last year, with Samsung leading the market as top design total available market company.

Samsung Electronics and Apple contributed 18.2 percent to the worldwide semiconductor in 2016, burning through US$61.7 billion. 

The cell phone creators had burned through US$61.3 billion the earlier year and possessed the main two positions for six back to back years, as indicated by figures from Gartner. Positions were swopped, however, with Samsung expecting the post position while Apple tumbled to second. 

Burning through US$31.67 billion a year ago, Samsung developed its semiconductor configuration add up to accessible market (TAM) with a 9.3 percent share. The iPhone producer burned through 2.9 percent less at US$29.99 billion, on diminished outline TAM surprisingly since Gartner started following the market in 2007. Its piece of the pie dropped to 8.8 percent, the examination firm stated, taking note of that Apple's iPad tablet did not offer well a year ago and it additionally lost partake in the PC advertise. 

Gartner's vital research examiner, Masatsume Yamaji, noted: "While both [Samsung and Apple] keep on exerting impressive impact on innovation and value patterns for the more extensive semiconductor industry, their effect has diminished because of falling desires for future development." 

The vast majority of the main 10 organizations in 2015 stayed on a year ago's main 10 list, except for Cisco Systems, which dropped out and was supplanted by Chinese cell phone OEM, BBK Electronics. 

Among the main 10 worldwide chip purchasers in 2016 were Dell, Lenovo, Huawei, and LG Electronics. 

Yamaji stated: "Despite the fact that the impact on the semiconductor business of the main two most grounded OEMs is debilitating, the consolidated plan TAM of the main 10 organizations beat the normal development rate of the aggregate semiconductor advertise in 2016. 

"In any case, semiconductor chip sellers can no longer secure their organizations by depending on a couple of solid clients since piece of the pie changes much speedier nowadays," he said. "BBK Electronics became quick in 2016 and expanded its outline TAM, however this remarkably quick development additionally underlines how unstable the organizations in China can be."

The Gartner analyst underscored the need for market players to diversify their clientele to remain competitive.
